  • 1 lb fresh mushrooms, cleaned and stems trimmed
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional for a kick)

How to Make

  1. Prepare the Mushrooms:
    • Start by cleaning your mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt. Trim the stems slightly but leave them mostly intact for a beautiful presentation.
  2. Marinate:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, white vinegar, minced garlic, chopped parsley, oregano, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes if using.
    • Add the mushrooms to the bowl and toss gently to coat them evenly with the marinade.
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Let the mushrooms marinate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for deeper flavor.
  3. Serve:
    • Remove the mushrooms from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving to allow them to come to room temperature.
    • Toss them lightly to refresh the coating of the marinade and transfer to a serving dish.

Helpful Tips

  • Marinating Time: For the best flavor, let the mushrooms marinate overnight. The longer they sit, the more they soak up all the wonderful flavors.
  • Serving Suggestions: These mushrooms are fabulous on their own, but also make a great addition to salads, antipasto platters, or even as a garnish for grilled meats.


  • Vinegar: You can substitute white vinegar with apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar for a different twist.
  • Herbs: Feel free to experiment with different herbs like basil or thyme to suit your taste preferences.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I use frozen mushrooms?
    • Yes, frozen mushrooms can work, but fresh mushrooms will give you the best texture and flavor.
  2. How long can I store marinated mushrooms?
    • They can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Storage Instructions

To keep the mushrooms fresh, store them in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. They are best enjoyed within 5 days.
