Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
Share |

Many people may think of mushrooms as vegetables, but did you know that mushrooms are actually fungi? The word "mushroom” is used to refer to any fungus that has a stem, a cap, and gills or pores on the bottom side of the cap. Mushrooms are used extensively in cuisine and can be eaten both raw and cooked or added as a garnishment to a meal. While mushrooms are low in calories, fat and sodium; they are a good source of B vitamins, selenium, copper, and potassium.



3 portobello mushrooms

¼ cup canola oil

3 Tbsp chopped onion

4 cloves garlic, minced

4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Directions: Clean mushrooms and remove stems, reserve for other use. Place caps on a plate with the gills up. In a small bowl, combine the oil, onion, garlic, and vinegar. Pour mixture evenly over the mushrooms caps and let stand for 1 hour. Cook over hot grill or under the broiler for 10 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time. Serve immediately.
