Syrian Recipes

My ex-husband was from Syria. In my attempt to try and please him, I wanted to learn Syrian recipes. I believed that our home should be comfortable for both of us. So me wanting to learn how to make Syrian recipes was one way I thought would help.

My ex-husband’s cousin, who loved to cook, showed me some of his prized Syrian recipes. One of which was marinated mushrooms. Everyone he made them for would go crazy over these garlic mushrooms.


What made these marinated mushrooms stand out was the garlic. Also that these mushroom appetizers are raw marinated mushrooms. These garlic mushrooms are great for snacking.

Garlic Mushrooms

I had to dig into my past for these garlic mushrooms recipe. Truth is I was craving mushroom appetizers. I really missed Rami’s garlic mushrooms.  There is just something about the garlic with the mint and lemon that makes these marinated mushrooms addicting.

Mushroom Appetizers

I admit I love mushroom appetizers. What I really like about these marinated mushrooms is that they are super easy to make. Even someone who is not a cook can make these mushroom appetizers.

Cooking Tip:


hen a savory dish needs a little oomph, try a squeeze of lemon instead of salt. A hit of citrus can make the whole recipe come to life. – Source: Epicurious

Lemon Mint

In a Syrian recipe for garlic mushrooms, you use a lemon mint combination. In Italian marinated mushrooms, instead of mint you would use parsley. Plus you use lemon instead of vinegar.

    Learning cuisine from different countries is wonderful. These mushrooms sound so very tasty, and so easy to make. A great appetizer, they would be wonderful with a dipping sauce.
