Marinated Mushrooms

Ingredients:

12 ounces cremini mushrooms

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Salt and pepper

Directions:

  • Clean the mushrooms, trim the stems and place the mushrooms into a bowl.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and vinegar. 
  • Sprinkle in the oregano.
  • Slowly whisk in the olive oil and mix until emulsified.
  • Whisk in the salt and pepper.

Oven-baked Zucchini Chips

Ingredients:

1 large zucchini, washed and cut into 1/4-inch discs

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup breadcrumbs

1/2 cup vegan Parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

1 cup unsweetened almond milk 

Olive oil spray

Salt and pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place zucchini slices on a paper towel, sprinkle them with salt and let the slices sit for about 15 minutes. This will draw out moisture and make crispier chips. 
  • In a bowl, whisk together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, garlic powder and Italian seasoning until combined. 
  • Pour flour into a small bowl and the almond milk into another small bowl.
  • Pat off any excess water from the zucchini discs, then dip each into the flour.
  • Next, dip the discs into the almond milk and then press them into the breadcrumbs until both sides are coated. 
  • Place on the baking sheet. Repeat with all discs. 
  • Spray the tops of the zucchini with olive oil. Flip them over to spray the other side. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Flip the zucchini and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. 
  • Serve with a side of marinara sauce.
