Lemon & Garlic Marinated Mushrooms

The recipe notes for "Lemon & Garlic Marinated Mushrooms" (page 22) speak true - once you try this quick-to-prepare and delicious appetizer, you will not want to go back to buying these from a deli. Small white mushrooms are marinated in fresh lemon juice and herbs (marjoram, fennel seed, fresh parsley and garlic), salt and pepper, then chilled for a couple of hours. The recipe also calls for oil, which some people might think a necessary ingredient in any kind of marinated mushroom. But the lemon juice is really the ingredient that does the marinating and flavoring and the oil really can be omitted without detracting from the fresh flavors. Be sure to get the smallest whole mushrooms you can find for the best results.
