Portobello mushrooms are delicious any way they are made but roasting them in olive oil and herbs magnifies their goodness by 1000!
Preheat your oven to 350. Clean and slice your mushroom lengthwise into 1/2 inch slices and set aside.
Chop up your parsley, garlic, and shallots.
In a small bowl combine your chopped parsley, garlic, shallot, olive oil, and salt and pepper and mix.
Dunk each slice of portobello mushroom into the mixture.
Lay out flat on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Take them out of the oven, flip them over, and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.
Enjoy these on their own or pair them with my Lebanese Beef Sliders.

Goji berries are one of the most well known Chinese herbs in the US. Used for over 2000 years in China, they were first mentioned in the Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing, the oldest known book on Chinese herbs in 200 BC. They are prized for their ability to tonify blood and yin without causing stagnation. Consumed daily in China as a food and herbal medicine, goji berries are revered for their anti-aging properties. They are used in many beauty tonics.
