You can cook just about anything in a parchment packet, or “en papillote.” The paper seals in the moisture and concentrates the flavors of the ingredients inside. Here, the wild mushrooms, like oysters, shiitakes, and trumpets, turn sweet and earthy when roasted together in the packet with quinoa and other seasonal vegetables. Toasted Marcona almonds from Spain are the perfect crunchy garnish for this wholesome meal.

Trim the stems off the wax beans, then cut them into 2-inch lengths on an angle. Slice the scallions on an angle. Roughly chop the Marcona almonds.
