Step 1: Preheat the Oven
The first step is to preheat the oven to 400°F. This will ensure that the roasted red potatoes and mushrooms cook evenly and turn crispy on the outside.

While the oven is preheating, wash and dry the red potatoes and mushrooms. Cut the potatoes into small cubes, about 1 inch in size. Slice the mushrooms in half.
Step 3: Season the Potatoes and Mushrooms
In a large mixing bowl, combine the potatoes and mushrooms and drizzle with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add a teaspoon of garlic powder, a teaspoon of parsley flakes, and half a teaspoon of salt. Toss everything together until the vegetables are evenly coated with the seasoning.
Step 4: Roast the Potatoes and Mushrooms
Spread the seasoned potatoes and mushrooms onto a large baking sheet, making sure they are in a single layer. Roast in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, until they are tender and golden brown.

Substitutions and Variations
This recipe is already delicious as is, but if you’re looking to switch things up a bit, here are some substitutions and variations you can try:
– Potatoes: While this recipe calls for red potatoes, you can use any type of potatoes you have on hand. Yukon golds or russets will work well too. Just keep in mind that different potatoes have different textures and cook times, so adjust accordingly.
– Seasonings: Feel free to play around with the seasonings in this recipe. Swap out the parsley flakes for fresh chopped rosemary or thyme. You can also add a pinch of red chile flakes for a bit of heat.
– Roasted Vegetables: If you’re looking to add some other roasted vegetables to the mix, go for it! Carrots, butternut squash, and onions are all great options. Just make sure they’re cut into similar-sized pieces so they cook evenly.

Tips for Perfect Results
If you want to achieve the perfect roasted potatoes and mushrooms, then follow these tips to create a flavorful and irresistible dish.
First, make sure to use fresh and high-quality ingredients. When selecting your potatoes and mushrooms, look for those that are firm, unblemished, and without any signs of mold or rot. Quality ingredients will make your Magic Mushrooms taste even better.
Second, don’t overcrowd your baking sheet or pan. If the vegetables are too crowded, they will steam instead of roast, which will result in a less crispy texture. Make sure there is enough space for air to circulate around each piece.
Third, toss your ingredients in oil and seasoning before roasting. This will ensure that all pieces are evenly coated, and the seasoning will be distributed evenly. Use a large mixing bowl to toss the ingredients, and make sure that each piece is coated with oil and seasoning.
Fourth, preheat your oven before roasting. It is essential to preheat your oven to the right temperature before roasting. This will help to ensure that your vegetables cook evenly and will produce a crispy exterior and a soft interior.
Fifth, stir the vegetables halfway through the cooking time. This will ensure that all sides of the vegetables are evenly roasted and will prevent them from sticking to the pan.
Sixth, add herbs and spices to your taste. Magic Mushrooms are versatile and can be seasoned with a variety of herbs and spices. Try adding garlic powder, parsley flakes, or red chili flakes to add more flavor and zest.
Finally, let the roasted potatoes and mushrooms rest for a few minutes before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld and will result in a more delicious dish.
By following these tips, you’ll achieve the perfect roasted potatoes and mushrooms every time.
In conclusion, I hope this Magic Mushrooms (Roasted Red Potatoes) recipe has inspired you to try something new in the kitchen. It’s a simple yet flavorful dish that’s perfect as a side or even as a main course for vegans.
