Baked Shiitake Mushrooms

About a year and a half ago, my husband and I inoculated some oak logs with shiitake mushroom spawn. And finally, with all the recent rain, we found mushrooms growing on one of the logs! The inspiration for this recipe came from this one, which looks really good. I just made mine with a few ingredients that we had on hand.

Shiitake mushrooms

Dried thyme

Avocado oil and/or ghee

Salt and pepper

Add oil and seasonings to mushrooms on baking pan.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes.  Stir on pan and bake another 10 minutes or until done. The texture was chewy in a meaty way and satisfying, unlike sauteed mushrooms. Kind of like a mushroom jerky. We just grabbed the mushrooms by the stalk and ate the caps.
