Saucy Mushrooms

Prep: 9 minutes; Cook: 20 minutes

Select a variety of wild mushrooms for an earthy, full-flavored side that pairs well with roasted meats. We chose baby portobellos and chanterelles, but just about any wild variety you find in the store will work well in this recipe. Grated lemon rind and fresh lemon juice add a bright, tangy flavor to this rustic dish.
