Smashed Mushrooms with Pesto & Burrata



Ingredients

  • 12 large cremini or button mushrooms (about 1 pound)

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 (4 ounce) ball burrata

  • 3 tablespoons pesto

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 475°F.


  2. Wipe mushrooms clean and trim stems flush with caps. Score a 1/4-inch X across the cap of each mushroom. Toss the mushrooms, oil, salt and pepper together in a large bowl until the oil is absorbed. Arrange the mushrooms on a large rimmed baking sheet, stem-side up. Roast on the lower rack until browned and very soft, about 20 minutes.


  3. When the mushrooms are done, remove them from the oven and turn the broiler to high. Turn any mushrooms that have shifted stem-side up on the pan; use the bottom of a mason jar or other sturdy glass to flatten each mushroom. Broil on the upper rack until crisp on the bottom and edges, 3 to 4 minutes.


  4. Arrange the mushrooms on a platter. Tear burrata ball in half and place in the middle of the mushrooms. Whisk pesto and lemon juice in a small bowl, adding water by the teaspoonful until a drizzling consistency is reached, if necessary. Drizzle the pesto mixture over the mushrooms.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
