- 10 ounces oyster mushrooms*, gently separated into large pieces
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
- Pinch ground black pepper
- 1 ½ cup packed arugula leaves
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
- Additional olive oil for serving, if desired
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Spread the mushrooms in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss gently and spread back into a single layer.
- Roast for 15 minutes. Check the mushrooms. If any liquid has formed on the sheet pan, carefully drain it off. Roast the mushrooms for 5 to 10 more minutes, until browned and tender.
