Grilled Portabella Mushrooms

(Serves 4)
Time: Under 1 Hour

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    Grilling Tip:
    Go for the good stuff (over $5). Cheaper versions tend to be sour and overpowering, while quality balsamic vinegar is sweeter and you won't need as much which will make up for the added price.
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • Salt and pepper (to taste)

  • 4 portabella mushroom caps
  • Directions for Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

    In a small food processor or blender, combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, chopped fresh basil, oregano, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Pulse for 10 seconds.

    Grilling Tip:
    Blending rather than whisking your marinades prevents one single flavor from dominating the marinade (usually olive oil).

    Pour the basil, oregano, and garlic vinaigrette into a medium bowl. Add the portabella mushroom caps, smooth side up. Allow to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes, turning twice.

    Grilling Tip:
    Portobello mushrooms are like sponges. So less is more when it comes to marinating them. This avoids the flavors from becoming too overpowering and creating sour, slimy mushrooms.

    Meanwhile, preheat your grill to medium-high heat (400 degrees F). The grill is ready when you can only keep the palm of your hand two inches above the grate for about 3 seconds before pulling away.

    Lightly oil grate and place mushrooms, smooth side up, on the grill (save leftover marinade for basting). Grilled portabella mushrooms take about 6 - 8 minutes per side. Brush frequently with reserved marinade. Serve hot off the grill.
