Balsamic Portobello Mushrooms, grilled to perfection, are the perfect vegetarian main dish. And so easy.
Grilled Balsamic Portobello Mushrooms are bursting with flavor, have a meaty, satisfying texture and will put a smile on your face. The recipe is simple. Mix the few items for the vinaigrette, pour the vinaigrette dressing over the mushrooms, and marinate for 30 minutes (or more). Then grill a few minutes per side and EAT!
What You Need
You will need measuring cups and spoons, a wire whisk, a flat casserole dish, and a grill. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, you can use an indoor grill. Indoor grills take half the time because they cook both sides simultaneously.
Balsamic Portobello Mushrooms Recipe
Balsamic Portobello Mushrooms
Meaty, juicy grilled mushrooms with a zing
- 1 shallot (minced)
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- ½ teaspoon anchovy paste (omit for vegetarian/vegan)
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (or any combination of oregano, basil and thyme)
- 1/4 teaspoon Sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 4 large Portobello mushroom caps
Wash and pat dry the mushrooms. Be gentle.
Using a 1 cup measuring cup (or larger), add the shallot, garlic, anchovy paste (if using), balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, mustard, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Heat the mixture for 30 seconds in the microwave. This makes it easier to emulsify.
Whisk the vinaigrette mixture until emulsified (thoroughly combined).
Place the mushroom caps (underside up) in the flat dish and pour the vinaigrette over the mushrooms.
Cover and set aside until you are ready to cook them, at least 30 minutes (if possible). You can cook them immediately and they will be ALMOST as good.
Heat your grill to medium hot (about 350F degrees).
If cooking on an outdoor grill, place the mushrooms directly on the grill slats, close the top, and grill for 6 minutes a side.
If cooking on an indoor grill, place the mushrooms directly on the grill plates, close the cover, and grill for 6 minutes TOTAL (indoor grills cook both sides at once).
Serve hot or at room temperature.
