Grilled Mushrooms

Marinated mushrooms definitely taste better than the non-marinated ones.  They retain their water and don’t dry out as much.  If you are having a hectic day and don’t have time to marinate them just toss them in oil and garlic and grill them.  Even without marinating them they will still taste good.

While any kind of mushroom is good grilled, I recommend using Shiitake, or Portobello mushrooms.  These mushrooms are the “meatiest” flavor-wise and are wonderful for anyone who is looking to cut down on their meat consumption.  Their large size also lends them a certain beauty and elegance.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Mix together the pressed garlic and olive oil.  Trim the bottom of the mushroom stems and then brush the mushrooms with the oil marinade.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.

Remove from the refrigerator and grill on a medium setting for 5-10 minutes on each side.

Serve with Coconut Polenta Rounds

Enjoy!

Turn the grill on to a medium setting.
