Roasted Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta

Roasted Garlic and Mushroom Bruschetta

To mushroom or not to mushroom? I know mushrooms are a sensitive topic with a lot of people – you either LOVE or hate them. Half of the people in my family love mushrooms and the other half can’t stand them. Thankfully J loves mushrooms just as much as I do because they are one of my favorite vegetables to cook up in the kitchen! Especially in this rich and flavorful Roasted Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta.

If my trip to Italy this past Summer taught me anything, it’s that bruschetta is not just about the tomatoes. Almost every restaurant we went to (espeically the more traditional ones) had several bruschettas listed on the menu from white bean to olive tapenade brushetta. This led me to think WHY not Mushroom Bruschetta?!

Usually, I am pretty tame with the mushrooms I use in my cooking and stick to mostly white button and portabello mushrooms but I REALLY went outta my mushroom comfort zone in this Roasted Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta guys! I used equal parts of oyster, black oyster, cremini, and shitake mushrooms.

  • Yield: 14 bruschetta 1x

Description

This Roasted Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta is so incredibly flavorful and appetizing. It makes the perfect rich and flavorful appetizer to serve at a party or family get-together. I used an assortment of my favorite mushrooms in this Roasted Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta but feel free to experiment with different mushroom in this bruschetta as you please!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 baguette
  • drizzle olive oil
  • 46 cloves roasted garlic, lightly chopped
  • 1 raw clove garlic
  • 6 cups (600 grams) mushrooms assortment (oyster, cremini, shitake and black oyster), roughly chopped
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme, hard stems removed
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pinch ground pepper
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Garnish

  • Fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. To roast garlic, preheat oven to 425F/220C. Cut the head off of the garlic and drizzle with a bit of olive oil (if using). Roast in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes until soft, slightly brown on the outside and fragrant.
  2. Turn down oven to 400F/205C. Cut baguette into 1 inch/2 1/2 cm slices. Brush with olive oil. Bake the baguette in the oven for 10 minutes, until slightly crispy and light golden brown. Cut the raw garlic clove in half and rub over the sliced, warm baquette.
  3. In a large pan, saute mushroom assortment, roasted garlic, thyme and balsamic vinegar until the mushrooms are reduced and the water of the mushroom is absorbed. Turn off heat and stir in lemon juice. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Scoop a large spoonful of mushroom mixture on top of each baguette slice. Serve warm and garnish with fresh parsley.

Notes

1) Adjust garlic to taste.
2) You can play with the assortment of mushrooms you use in this recipe. The mushrooms listed are my favorite mushrooms to use.
3) For an oil-free version leave out the olive oil (I prefer it with).
4) For a gluten-free version, use gluten-free baguette.

  1. I went all out on mushrooms to make this for a party we are going to later today. Sadly, the balsamic vinegar taste masks the mushrooms and even the roasted garlic. I added some vegan butter and wine to try to tame it, but even after resting overnight, the balsamic vinegar taste overpowers. I’ll have to come up with something else for the party.

  2. Mushrooms and bread, there is nothing more I need in an appetizer! Mushrooms do seem to be a love or hate thing, but it seems there is mostly love for them in the vegan community. I think being vegan makes us appreciate all plant foods a little more. And when they are sautéed and served with all this flavor my appreciation gets even higher for mushrooms 🙂

  3. These are just gorgeous Ceara! What a beautiful idea to use mushrooms instead of tomatoes! These look like they are so full of flavor and I love all that roasted garlic, yes please!! Such a beautiful appetizer and presentation. Loving the new pic style too so soft and moody, I love that style 🙂 Awesome recipe!

    1. Thank you so much, Brandi!! The mushrooms are so incredibly in delicious in this 🙂 And thank you for lovely comment about the recent photos! Since we’ve moved our lighting has totally changed and we are going with it!

  4. Definitely mushroom! These look so good and I bet they taste even better. We made a mushroom breakfast thing that was similar to this but we didn’t use balsamic vinegar which I bet makes these even better!! I also love the combo of fresh and roasted garlic! Yum!
