  • Reviews

  • “Easy, tasty and less oily than when you buy this in a jar. Marinated them for 5 hours, there was a little left and I must say that the next day they tasted even nicer. The only thing I did different is that I added some salt.”

  • “The lemon juice was what made this simple recipe very good! I far prefer that above using vinegar. Loved the garlic. I used more mushrooms, I think 250 g, and increased the marinade ingredients likewise. Loved the garlic! Also, many recipes use cooked mushrooms and I wanted to use mine raw, like in this recipe. It was part of a large, healthy platter of salad ingredients with leftover sliced roast chicken breast and vinaigrette dressing. Thanks, Evie*, haven’t seen you around but hope you still visit this site!”

  • “These were awesome! I made them as an additional low carb, low fat side dish and they were gobbled up! I added some thyme, but otherwise made them as directed and will do so again. Thanks Evie!”
