Roasting any vegetable caramelizes them which brings out the full flavor. I like to mix a combination of mushrooms together, such as portabella, shitake and oyster mushrooms. You can mix your own favorites, or simply just use one. These mushrooms are just as good at room temperature as they are served warm. This is a great side dish for grilled or roasted meats.
