This is a really easy side dish. It involves only about 5 minutes of preparation (if you buy presliced mushrooms) before you put the dish in the oven. The rest of preparation time is unattended cooking, while the vegetables bake in the oven.


1 pound sliced mushrooms
1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons olive oil


1 Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a 9 x 13-inch baking pan, toss together the mushrooms, corn, onion, garlic, chili powder, sugar, and salt. Drizzle with the oil and toss again.

2 Bake until the mushrooms and onions are tender, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 4 servings

Mushroom, Corn & Onion Pizza Make the baked mushrooms and corn as directed. Leave the oven on. Brush 1 large (12 inches) prebaked thin pizza crust with ¼ cup tomato paste. Scatter 1 cup chopped onions on top. Top with the baked mushrooms and corn, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan. Bake for 10 minutes.
