Roasted Mushrooms with Harissa and Mint
Why This Recipe Works
For a rich, woodsy side dish, we combine straightforward cremini with meaty, smoky shiitakes. To ensure that the mushrooms are evenly seasoned and stay moist during roasting, we start by brining them in a saltwater solution. We then roast them in the oven for about an hour until they are deeply browned. Finally, we coat the mushrooms with garlic, harissa, lemon juice, cumin, and olive oil before adding chopped fresh mint.
