Thyme Roasted Mushrooms

Chinese doctors have used medicinal mushrooms for centuries as part of their healing. Their benefits are too long to list but to name a few: they aid in building the body's resistance, aid in detoxification, and support the functions of the Heart, Liver, Kidneys Lungs and joints. Different mushrooms have different flavours and textures therefore I love using a combination. This recipe is a great as a side dish or as a basis of a vegetarian meal. You can play around with any mushrooms or herbs you desire.


800g mixed mushrooms
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
3 garlic cloves, minced
few sprigs fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Clean and wipe mushrooms and then place in an oven proof dish. Season with salt and pepper and then add your thyme, minced garlic and coconut oil. Toss so that all mushrooms are coated.

Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
