These roasted mushrooms make an easy and delicious appetizer that comes together quickly and without much work. The highlight of this recipe is a whipped chive garlic butter that works great in a number of other dishes as well.
Chive garlic butter is a great addition for anything from seafood to steaks, potatoes, squash, you name it. You don’t have to put it on roasted mushrooms, but it is great on those too, of course.
How to make chive garlic butter:
You can make chive garlic butter by mashing up softened butter with chives and garlic but the butter is definitely better whipped. To do that, simply add 3 tablespoons softened, unsalted butter to a mixing bowl, then add 1 tablespoon cold water. Whip the mix with an electric mixer for a few minutes until the butter is creamy. Mix in ½ tablespoon minced fresh chives and 1 small minced or pressed garlic clove by hand and season to taste with a little bit of salt. Store the butter in the fridge but let it warm up a bit before serving for maximum flavor.
