T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies

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.



  • 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


  • 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

  • 1. Serve as a tasty sandwich topper or as a yummy side salad.
  • 2. If refrigerated, before serving, remove from the fridge and allow to sit for 30 minutes. This allows the seasonings to wake up.
