Portobello Mushrooms, Grilled I (P, KLP)
Source: McDougall
Serves: 4

4 large Portobello mushrooms
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar or soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
freshly ground black pepper

Clean the mushrooms well and leave whole or slice thickly crosswise.

Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Brush mushrooms with this mixture on both sides and grill over medium coals for about 5 minutes on each side. Brush with more of the mixture while grilling. Serve at once.

Recipe Hint: Whole Portobello mushrooms make delicious burgers. Serve them on a whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, ketchup, and mustard. They have a wonderful meaty taste and texture. For variety, we sometimes brush teriyaki sauce over the mushrooms before grilling These mushrooms are a staple in our home during the summer months, and they have become a favorite among friends and relatives too.
