Roasted Mushrooms with Moroccan Spices

Moroccan MushroomsWhen I was a kid, I wasn’t a fan of mushrooms and just the thought of them disgusted me! If my mom added mushrooms to a dish I remember picking each piece out pushing it to the side of my plate. But now that I’m older, I absolutely love mushrooms and cook with them all the time. I usually add some to omelettes, stews or pasta dishes but roasting a big amount in the oven is a favorite of mine. Roasting vegetables is an easy and flavorful shortcut to finishing off any meal. This delicious roasted mushroom dish is seasoned with Moroccan spices with a hint of cinnamon.

This is a wonderful side with roast chicken or grilled meats or fish. You can also just enjoy as an appetizer with a few slices of crusty bread.

      Great spice mix! I was the same way – with mushrooms and onions – until I was a teenager. So funny how your tastes change. I couldn’t live without either now!

        I know, same here! I also used to not like fresh ginger but now I use it a lot in cooking and even in our cocktails. Thanks for your comment, Alyssa!

      Yummy! I love mushrooms and have never thought to toss them in spices before roasting. And since Josh doesn’t like ’em, I’ll just have to eat them all!

      Made these tonight…flavor was super subtle…maybe I used too many mushrooms…smells great but tasted bland…will try doubling the spices next time.

        Yes, for you maybe try doubling the spice mixture.
