Marinated Mushrooms

This is a perfect anti-pasto to serve with drinks and nibbles at a BBQ, take on a picnic or for lunch boxes. It is so easy to make. The longer your marinade it for, the tastier the mushrooms will be!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 17 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 250 g mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp plus 1 tsp rice malt syrup
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tsp Rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried coriander
  • Sesame/Hemp seeds for sprinkling


  • Place mushrooms into bowl. Keep whole if small or pull apart into chunks if large mushrooms
  • Combine all other ingredients and mix into mushrooms ensuring that they are all covered with marinade
  • Place in fridge for at least 1 hour. I like to leave overnight to maximise all the flavours
  • Sprinkle with sesame or hemp seeds before serving


Place into jar and take on picnics or serve at BBQs
I have also tried making this without garlic but personally prefer it with garlic
Will keep for 7 days in the fridge but I guarantee they won't last that long!
