Grilled Mushroom Recipe

Grilled mushrooms are delicious as an appetizer or a savory side dish with any entrΓ©e, and they’re incredibly simple to make!

Add these flavorful morsels to burgers, chicken breasts, or even a simple bowl of cauliflower rice. Grilled mushrooms that have been marinated in a balsamic vinaigrette always come out tender and flavorful.

A grilled veggie medley can be created using wedges of red onions or chunks of bell peppers, as well as standard white or brown mushrooms (also known as cremini), which are preferred because of their uniform size. Whole portobello mushrooms can be cooked directly on the grill and then sliced after cooking or served whole (they make great veggie burgers).

MARINADE: To give the mushrooms a savory flavor, combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, fresh garlic, and a little lemon juice; if you prefer, you can also use soy sauce, tamari, or Worcestershire sauce in place of the vinegar.

  1. Thread mushrooms on four metal or soaked wooden skewers. Combine butter, dill and garlic salt; brush over mushrooms.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat until tender, 10-15 minutes, basting and turning every 5 minutes. Serve with grilled lemon wedges if desired.

Fuller elaborated in a longer Instagram post: “First, boil the mushrooms. First, boil to perfection – you can keep adding water until this is achieved. Remember, you can’t overboil a mushroom because of its special cellular structure. They will let their own water out so don’t put too much water at once.
