Roasted Baby Bellas With Rosemary & Garlic

Baby corn, baby carrots, baby bok choy—tiny vegetables have big appeal, whether you’re a kid or a grownup. If you’re a fan of portabella mushrooms, pint-sized baby bellas are sure to bring smiles to your dinner table. Also known as criminis, these cute little caps are portabellas harvested young. They have a mild, earthy flavor and meaty texture that set them apart from other fungi favorites. Try them roasted with rosemary for a hearty side dish, or tucked into a taco for a tasty meat-free filling.
