Citrus Marinated Mushrooms

I couldn't find just the right recipe for marinated mushrooms so I created this one in my test kitchen. I used button mushrooms for this recipe but baby portobellas would work as well. See how you can make it your own by changing the herbs.

Serves 8-10
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes plus 1-2 days to marinate


  • 16 ounces mushrooms of your choice, wiped clean and sliced in half
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 2 tablespoons dried
  • 2 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 orange, juice and zest
  • ΒΌ cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


    Combine mushrooms, thyme, rosemary, lemon and orange juice, lemon and orange zest, vinegar, garlic, oil and pepper in a medium bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 days, stirring several times. Toss in green onions 1 hour before serving.

    Cooking Wiser:
    Save time, use small whole button mushrooms

    Make it your own:
    Use cilantro or basil, these herbs compliment the citrus juice very well
