Marinated Portabella Mushrooms

So these mushrooms are fantastic in many ways. They’re great in pizza, tossed with fresh tomatoes and zucchini in olive oil, then added to pasta (with some brie cheese too, if you like). But my favorite is to marinate them then grill them. If you’re grilling them, they’re great sliced in shish-kabobs or as a portabella “burger”.

If you’re caught in a pinch, using Italian salad dressing instead of this marinade will do just fine for any application.

2 Portabella mushrooms, whole, poked with fork
¼ cup olive oil
2 TBSP balsamic
1 TBSP tamari or Braggs
1 TBSP chili flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
A dash of OJ (optional)

Mix everything together in a Tupperware or zip lock. Stir or toss occasionally. This can marinate for 90 minutes to 24 hours.

If enjoying a burger, it is best on a bun with caramelized onion, tomato slice, romaine lettuce, and roasted red pepper remouladé.
