Marinated Mushrooms

mushroom prtbllo marinated(Prepare this dish one to four days in advance. Keep it tightly covered in the refrigerator and toss the ingredients once a day.  If you make it the same day it will be served, allow at least two hours for it to marinate at room temperature and toss the ingredients often.)

8 portabella mushrooms (or buttons or crimini – use 2 or 3 times more)
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 green onions, thinly sliced
¼ cup minced fresh parsley
3 Tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs finely minced onion
2 Tbs Nama Shoyu
2 cloves garlic, finely minced or crushed
1 tsp salt.

Remove the stems and gills (see note below) from the mushrooms and wipe the caps clean with a damp cloth or paper towel.  Cut each mushroom cap in half, and then thinly slice it.  Place all of the remaining ingredients in a shallow bowl, add the mushroom slices, and gently toss until they are evenly coated. Let marinate at room temperature for 1 hour.  Cover and refrigerate, tossing occasionally.  Bring to room temperature before serving.

NOTE: Mushroom gills can be easily removed with the tip of a teaspoon.
