Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

I like making completely vegetarian meals a few times a week. The great thing about portobello mushrooms is that they are very meaty and grill beautifully. This recipe is a very basic way to marinate them. I marinated and grilled red bell peppers along side the shrooms and they made for a lovely combo, especially on a bed of baby arugula.

4 portobello mushroom caps, cleaned
1 red bell pepper, sliced in thin strips
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, minced
The zest of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon thyme (fresh is best, but I only had dried on hand)
Salt and pepper to taste
Whisk together all ingredients and pour over the mushrooms and pepper strips. Allow to marinade for at least 2 hours. 
Grill for about 4 minutes on each side. Serve as desired - on a bed of lettuce, on a bun, or with sliced tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella. 


  1. 1 - this looks delicious!!!

  2. Great recipe, Ashley! I'm trying to incorporate more portobellos now that I've discovered how awesome they are.
