For Mushroom Lovers An Easy Sheet Pan Recipe

Cooler weather in Provence, a touch of humidity, and maybe even some rain brings with it the promise of wild mushrooms foraged from nearby forests. However, you need to know where to look and do not expect the locals to show you where to find edible fungi. The good news is regional markets, and small food stores should have a variety of fresh mushrooms.

I love the heaps of different types of mushrooms at the Aix-en-Provence markets; here’s a straightforward recipe to make the most of them. Sheet pan bakes are a super-easy way to cook a family meal or casual lunch for friends (when we can do that again!). I like that it can all be prepared in advance and popped into the oven where the various ingredients mingle together into a delicious tasty dish. Continue reading here for the original recipe.

Mixed Mushroom Sheet Pan Recipe

Mixed Mushroom Sheet Pan Bake

blankLynne Alderson
This is a Jamie Oliver recipe for 4 - 6 people, especially at lunchtime when servings may be smaller. I didn’t have any cannellini beans in the kitchen, so I used mixed beans in tomato sauce, which turned out well. The great thing about sheet pan bakes is that you can incorporate varied ingredients, and they warm the kitchen too!

Servings 4 people

Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 3/4 lbs Potatoes
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 Red Onions
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 Fresh Red Chili Pepper optional
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Mixed Mushrooms
  • 2x 15oz tins Cannellini Beans
  • 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 4 tbsp Sour Cream heaped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C (395 ̊F). Scrub the potatoes, peel the garlic and onions, then slice everything 0.5cm thick. Place potatoes, garlic, and onions in a large, shallow roasting tray (30 x 40cm) as you go.
  • Strip in most of the rosemary leaves, then finely slice and add most of the chili (skip this step if choosing not to use chili). Add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper and 1 tbsp oil, toss well, arrange in an even layer and roast for 40 minutes. Halfway through cooking, roughly tear and toss in the mushrooms, leaving any smaller ones whole.
  • Pull the tray out of the oven, drain the beans, and stir them in along with 1 tbsp vinegar. Sprinkle the remaining rosemary leaves and chili, then return to the oven for a further 20 mins or until everything is golden and delicious.
  • Divide the sheet pan bake between plates with a dollop of sour cream on top. Lovely served with some steamed greens or dressed baby spinach.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
