Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

This recipe is from my newest cookbook Forks Over Knives.

Eat these alone with a salad, on top of quinoa, rice or other grain or on a hamburger bun for a vegan ‘hamburger.’  They are thick and “meaty” and take on the flavor of whatever marinade you put on them. Yum. Yum.

I served mine with succotash and an herbed rice.

*You will need a grill. (I used an electric indoor grill.)


4 large – portobello mushrooms

3 tablespoons – soy sauce

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

3 cloves- garlic minced

1 Tbsp.- grated ginger

Fresh ground pepper- to taste


Combine the soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic, ginger and pepper in a small bowl

Wash mushrooms well and place them stem side UP in a baking dish. Pour the marinade over them and cover with plastic wrap, allowing to sit and marinate for 1 hour.

When an hour is up, pre-heat the grill

Pour the excess marinade off the mushrooms, reserve the liquid in separate bowl and place mushrooms on the grill

Grill each side for 4-6 minutes, brushing each side with marinade every few minutes

*During the last few minutes you can brush lightly with and BBQ sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
