I married a Syrian man


s you may or may not know, my ex-husband was from Syria. In my attempt to try and please him, I wanted to learn Syrian food recipes. I believed that our home should be comfortable for both of us.


I wanted to have a fusion in our home of my Pittsburgh style and his Syrian heritage. His cousin encouraged me to believe in that because he thought I would be good for him to “loosen up.”

Syrian Marinated Garlic Mushrooms

To help me with living with the ass, his cousin, who loved to cook, showed me some of his prized recipes. One of which was these marinated garlic mushrooms. Everyone he made them for would go crazy over these morsels of yumminess.


What made these marinated mushrooms stand out was the garlic. Also that they are marinated mushrooms raw. So they are great for snacking. But wow, they can be very strong in the garlic area as well.

Marinated Garlic Mushrooms

So I had to dig into my past for this Syrian marinated garlic mushrooms recipe. My ex’s cousin girlfriend gave me a community cookbook as a gift. It was from her hometown but he had published this marinated mushrooms recipe in it.


Truth is, when I was going through the divorce, I never saw his cousin again. When I was moving out the apartment I shared with my ex, I left that cookbook with him. I did not want any parts of him or his family at that point.

Marinated Mushrooms Craving

Well, recently I was craving these marinated mushrooms. I tried finding this Syrian food recipe online and no luck at all in finding it. Yet, I did have an idea of how he made these Syrian marinated garlic mushrooms. His cousin did show me when I was a newlywed.


I love mushrooms and was about to give up finding this marinated mushrooms raw recipe. Then I stumbled across a recipe for Italian mushrooms. That marinated garlic mushrooms recipe was like his cousin’s Syrian marinated garlic mushrooms.


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


I had to make a couple of small changes to that marinated mushrooms raw recipe. For example, the Syrian marinated garlic mushrooms use mint instead of parsley. Also, this Syrian food recipe also uses lemon juice in it instead of vinegar.


I made the marinated garlic mushrooms recipe with the Syrian substitutes and BINGO! I cracked my ex-husband’s cousins Syrian marinated garlic mushrooms recipe. I finally was able to please that craving I was having!

    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.
