Preparations for making easy vegan baked garlic mushrooms
You don’t really need much preparations for making these easy vegan baked garlic mushrooms. However, you do want to clean the mushrooms so you don’t get soil in your food. Personally, I can’t stand soil or sand in the food, it will pretty much take my appetite away in a blink!
Many people wash their mushrooms. Others peel them. I don’t. I mainly make sure I buy pretty clean mushrooms so that all I need to do is to brush off the soil. Sometimes, when there is more soil on the mushrooms I use a paper towel to clean them. If that doesn’t get it off (and I’m seriously peculiar about getting it all off), I use a knife and peel opp the spot where the soil is stuck.
The second step in your preparation before making these delicious garlic butter roasted mushrooms is to clean out the stems of the mushrooms.
You do this easily by holding the mushroom in one hand with the stem pointing upward. Use your other hand to push the stem away from you until it loosens. Then you waggle it the other way until it goes off. If you do this carefully, it breaks at the perfect spot on the base so that you are left with perfectly hollow mushrooms to fill up with garlic and vegan butter.

How to serve roasted garlic mushrooms
You can have these delicious roasted garlic mushrooms as tapas or a side dish. They go perfectly well with baked potatoes, soup with garlic bread, and pasta dishes, but also with several tapas like, lemon garlic asparagus, chili beans or tomato basil bruschetta.
I prefer to eat them warm, but they are even nice to snack on once they’ve cooled down. I love to have these as a light late-night snack when I don’t want to eat too heavy. They even go perfectly well with beet potato salad or vegan potato fritters.
