  • 200 g button mushrooms, approximate
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar, or vinegar of your choice
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2-3 whole chillis, optional
  • 1 bay leaf, optional


  • Get a clean jar ready. If you're planning to keep these in the fridge for more than a day or two, then I'd recommend sterilising the jar (the easiest way to do that is in the dishwasher, or you can boil the jar in a saucepan for a few minutes).
  • Prepare your mushrooms. If they're really small you don't need to do anything, just make sure they're perfectly clean. If they're a little bigger then cut them in half or into quarters. Remove the stems, if you like.
  • Put the mushrooms into the jar.
  • Put all remaining ingredients into a pot and bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat and pour the mixture over the mushrooms (while still hot). Give everything a shake or stir, and leave to cool to room temperature. Once cool, store in the fridge.
  • Makes approximately 2 cups.


Nutrition information calculated based on 2 tbsp olive oil, which is a more accurate reflection of what you'd actually consume (unless you plan to drink the marinading liquid).
If you think giving the mushrooms a shake in the jar is a good idea, make sure it's well sealed (yes, that happened).
