Make mushroom in your fridge for this simple, long-lasting marinated mushroom appetizer recipe. This is the perfect addition to your cheese board or a great vegetarian side dish. Add this to your menu for holiday parties, Thanksgiving, and winter get-togethers. Simply make ahead and keep in the fridge until ready to serve. The measurements make ten servings and the mushrooms can stay in the refrigerator for about a month.

Here is how to make this recipe with purpose-fueled food that’s better for the prosperity of our planet and people.


  • 8 oz. fresh mushrooms (crimini,  baby bella, or oyster mushrooms are ideal)
  • 1/2 c - 1 c. liquid/brine from olives (or, capers) 
  • 1/2 c.  tarragon vinegar
  • 1/2 c.  dark brown sugar
  • 1  bay leaf
  • clove garlic, sliced


  • Cut mushrooms into chunks. Saute with 1 - 2 tbsp. olive oil. 
  • Measure about 1/2 c. liquid from a jar of olives (or other briny product), add water to make 1 cup.
  • Add vinegar, sugar, and bay leaf. 
  • Boil, then pour over mushrooms.
  • Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.

Store marinated mushrooms in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy. Will keep for about 1 month stored properly. Save the marinade vinegars after enjoying the mushrooms and use the liquid to flavor other dishes (e.g., to saute greens, for a salad dressing, as a refreshing beverage).
