Ginger-Marinated Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Whether you’re a vegetarian or not, this grilled mushroom recipe will delight you. The soy and ginger soak into the tender mushrooms for a powerful flavor. Serve on a whole-grain bun like a burger or with brown rice and greens for a complete meal.

You can use a grill or a broiler for these mushrooms.  Marinate them first for an hour in this simple sweet-tangy marinade with a zing of fresh ginger.  So easy, so yummy.

Servings: 4 (135 G )

Prep Time: (Marinate Time: 1 Hour)

Cook Time: 10 Minutes


4 large portobello mushrooms

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup pineapple juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger, peeled

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil


.      Clean mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove their stems. Place in a glass dish, stemless (gill) side up.

.      To prepare the marinade, in a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, pineapple juice and ginger. Drizzle the marinade over the mushrooms. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning mushrooms once.

.      Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.

Grill or broil the mushrooms on medium heat, turning often, until tender, about 5 minutes on each side. Baste with marinade to keep from drying out. Using tongs, transfer the mushrooms to a serving platter. Garnish with basil and serve immediately.
