"This is the best! I've been making it since Crescent Dragonwagon published "The Passionate Vegetarian". For such an easy dish, it is outrageously good! This recipe alone was worth paying for the entire book, which is chock full of other good veggie recipes."
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray the pan with oil. Place shiitakes in baking dish; caps up or down, it makes no difference. Make sure pan is big enough so the mushrooms are not on top of each other; they need air space and breathing room to roast up properly. Toss the mushrooms with the oil, garlic, and salt. Pop the pan in the oven, uncovered, and let bake 10 to 12 minutes. Take them out. Shake the pan a few times. Some of the mushrooms should be starting to get a little golden on the lighter, underneath side of the caps. You will probably need to put them back in for a few more minutes say, 3 to 5 minutes, maybe more if your oven wasnt really hot when you put them in. At least a third of the mushrooms should be starting to color and get a little crunchy. Using the lesser amount of oil, this will happen more quickly. Serve, warm or at room temperature, with an optional decorative sprig of herb. This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings as a starter; however, most people will want two portions.
