Tasty cremini and button mushrooms, garlic, and roasted red peppers are marinated in a dressing that will remind you of those delicious salads from your favorite local Italian deli.

What You'll Need


10 oz. button mushrooms, sliced

10 oz. cremini mushrooms, sliced

2 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce

1 Tbsp garlic, minced

¾ cup roasted red pepper strips


¼ cup red wine vinegar

2 Tbsp water

1 tsp lemon juice

2 tsp miso

2 Tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

½ tsp dried basil

¼ tsp dried oregano

½ tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp sea salt

¼ tsp black pepper

How to Make It

1 Place mushrooms in a large skillet with the tamari. Sauté for 9 to 10 minutes to allow the mushrooms to release their juices, then add the minced garlic and roasted red pepper strips; sauté for another minute. Remove from the heat, allow to cool, and place in a bowl.

2 Place all the marinade ingredients in a small bow and whisk well to combine. Set aside.

3 Once the mushroom mixture has cooled, pour the marinade over it. Toss until mushrooms are covered well with the marinade. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

4 Serve cool or at room temperature.

Cooking Tips

Serve as a tasty sandwich topper or as a yummy side salad.

If refrigerated, before serving, remove from the fridge and allow to sit for 30 minutes. This allows the seasonings to wake up.
