Meatless Monday: Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Heirloom Tomato Caprese Stack
I just got back from a week long vacation in Wisconsin Dells with all of Mike’s family. Each year I look forward to this trip. I feel like some people might look at going to the same place and doing the same things each year as boring. Well, I have news for you. It isn’t!
This year I was happy to make memories with Andy. Well, memories he won’t remember quite yet. But I will remember them. I will remember how excited he was to be around all his cousins and how happy he was that there was a bouncy seat in the water.
Although this trip is such a highlight of our summer, it also signals the end of the summer. Womp, womp.
We only have two weeks before Mike is back at school and working tirelessly to get his little football team that could to the playoffs. It will be back to busy weeks and weeknights. Back to falling asleep on the couch on Friday night because we (mainly Mike) are so tired. Back to football games on Saturdays with just that little window of time after the game to do something as a family.
I better stop now, because I am getting depressed. On the bright side, like I said earlier, there are still two weeks.
So, fire up your grills, bust out your baby pools, and crack open a shandy, kids. We still have time. It may not be much, but it is enough to enjoy this quick and pretty stack of salad. I guess it is a salad. Or maybe a side dish. Either way, it is a great way to end summer BBQ season.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
Every year, when it is humid, grilled food is made my side dish haven on our back porch. When I stand outside sipping wine with one hand and tossing Portobello mushrooms, it feels like something special happens every day and as long as I can do it quietly and happily to myself, everything is OK.
I have been utterly enamored of the wonderful versatility of grilled grilled vegetables ever since I learn to make Grilled coliflower Steaks. In the season, I feel like the same for rasted vegetables—10 minutes of work to create a plate high with sprinkling, balanced satisfaction.
Grilled pimples have a major benefit over baked mushroom recipes: don't clean up at the end!
Simple Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
You will need one primary ingredient (ahem, portobellos) and a few basic ingredients for marinade to make these tasty marinated grilled champignons.
The fungi of Portobello. The "meaty" aspect is one of the things I enjoy best about portobello mushrooms. We're talking about a vegetable, but in kingdom veg, Portobello champignons are particularly pleasing, particularly when grilled, I know they probably sounds a little strange.
Before cooking this recipe you would certainly want to purify the mushrooms.
Clean the mushrooms of Portobello: Proceed to cut and dispose the stalks. Clean some debris from the caps thoroughly with a paper towel. Scrape along the underside of the caps gently with a small spoon to extract the gills. It is edible, however strange, and if you sprinkle with it, it turns the recipe into a dull, disgusting color. You should keep them on if the gills don't bother you.
The biggest achievement for mega mushrooms is to improve their taste with the simple portobello mushroom marinade, which plays the earthy (good-food and good accurate) umami aspect of the Portobellos.
Easy Portobello Mushroom Marinade Ingredients
Vinegar Balsamic. Tang. Tang. Tang. Flavor depth. Depth. Tasty. Superb.
I am Soy. I am Soy. That umami subjecthin.'
Spices.- Spices. Last, the powder containing garlic. Since 1) the hairy garlic will burn and 2) I'm too slow for thin garlic often. The black pepper, second. These grilled portobello champagne are not enough to make it spicy. Only enough to wake your palate and ask why you can't stop eating them. Cayenne, two. Two. Alternatively, however, welcomed.
Rosemary. -Rosemary. A weed that can stand up without overpowering the mushrooms. New thyme is also going to be wonderful.
How to Cook a Portobello Mushroom
If it's the first time, don't be scared! You should barbecue it on a grill, whether inside or outdoors, and you don't have to worry food safety so we don't fuss over internal temperatures.
Placed the marinade ingredients in a flavored bowl together. Choose a plate large enough for a single layer of mushrooms.
Attach the mushrooms then cover all sides with the marinade. A fast 10 minutes is all you need to do, but if you otherwise have a job drinking wine to prepare other food products, you can cause it to take up to 30 minutes. Don't go past 30 or portobellos are too salty.
Place the mushrooms on the grill and clean them as they are cooking with the marinade.
Cook on both sides for 3-4 minutes. BOOM. BOOM. Dinner, done that. Dinner, done.
You can eat these barbeque champignons alone or with a heart-hearted coating of this Cauliflower steak (SAGOOD) like the Herby Avocado sauce.
This recipe is also fantastic for a grilled mushroom burger in portobello. Stack every grilled mushroom on a piece of bun (I love the provolone, fontina, or if I like it too much), jerky new summer and a bunch of arugula. Cover with a slice of cheese. Go ahead and add avocado as well because of the BEST LIFE GRILLED VEGÉTABLES. Try this filled, double stacks of Portobello Mushroom Burger for an additional gourmet experience.

Are portobello mushrooms bad for you?
Mushrooms contain traces of raw cancerous compounds, including ordinary button mushrooms. Portobello champagne also has the same poison, hydrazine, and shiake champignons contain a formaldehyde naturally occurring. Both chemicals are susceptible to heat and eliminated on heat exposure.
Is it OK to eat the gills of a portobello mushroom?
Mushroom gills are absolutely edible, but they make a dish in some cases unstoppable. There was a mistake. Many recetes for mushrooms do not request that the gills on the bottom of the caps be removed. However, the mushrooms of Portobello have dark gills, which can make any dish they use dark and nasty.
How do you know when portabella mushrooms are done?
Depending on the size and temperature of your grill, your cooking time will change. You know that when you press the center with tongs (where the stem used to be) and the mushrooms are full, they are very soft and juicy. Remove from heat and allow 5 minutes to relax.
You can have a lot of fun with this mushroom recipe by mixing up the meats and cheese. I used ham and provolone, but other great options would be:
- Canadian bacon or pancetta (pre-cook it before using it in this recipe)
- Deli chicken or turkey slices.
- Gouda, edam, cheddar, Swiss or even blue cheese (you can never go wrong with any kind of cheese).
- Heirloom, beefsteak and Kumato tomatoes are great choices.
How To Tell If Mushrooms Are Bad
They are perishable and will not stay fresh for long. Normally 2 weeks is about as long as you can keep them.
Check to see if they have any of the following signs and discard:
- They should be smooth and firm. If they have lots of wrinkles discard them.
- Do they emit an odor? Throw them out.
- If they have lots of dark spots or are discolored, I would not eat them.
- If they have been around for more than a couple of weeks, they are ready for compost.

The ingredients you'll need
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make grilled portobello mushrooms (the exact measurements are in the recipe card below):
Balsamic vinegar: I like to use a 5-year aged vinegar, which is considered young in the world of balsamic vinegars.
Olive oil: I love cooking with this delicious oil. But if you'd rather use an oil with a higher smoke point, you can use avocado oil instead. But olive oil is more flavorful.
Lemon juice: Freshly squeezed is best. It tastes much better than bottled lemon juice.
Minced garlic: Mince it yourself or use the stuff that comes in a jar. You can also use a comparable amount of garlic powder.
Kosher salt: If using fine salt, you should reduce the amount you use, or the dish could end up too salty.
Fresh portobellos: Try to find ones that are about the same size.
Caprese Style Portobellos
I love the large portobello mushroom caps because basically you can stuff them with almost anything you want resulting in a beautiful meal that you created in no time. You don’t need a bunch of ingredients to make them and you feel totally satisfied after you’ve eaten them.
We often eat these as a main course during the week along with a nice big salad but if you want to make them as a delicious side dish next to grilled chops or a steak, I’m here to tell you they go perfectly together!
What’s not to like? All the flavors of a caprese salad all plopped into a large portobello cap! It’s good, it’s really good.
One of the reasons this tastes so good is that you cut and prepare your cherry tomatoes ahead of time letting them sit in a bowl for a few minutes with your olive oil, fresh basil, salt and pepper, letting all the flavors meld together. Good tomatoes are the key of course!
And lastly, and I wouldn’t say this unless I meant it, but if you really want to take the whole flavor experience over the top, finish it off with this!
Grilled Portobello Caprese Salad
There is nothing better than fresh grilled vegetables, especially when they are seasoned with just the right herbs and spices. In this recipe I use loads of fresh organic basil because the taste and health benefits are endless! Here’s the skinny on the beauty of basil….
The French call basil I’herbe royale (the royal plant) and I couldn’t agree more. This green herb is a great source of calcium, potassium and vitamin C. Some tests have shown that basil has a salutary effect on people’s outlook and disposition. Many other cultures value basil for its ability to relieve intestinal pain, bloating and diarrhea (hello flat belly!). Basil’s essential oil has been found to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria such as listeria, e. coli and staphylococcus. So when you enjoy this caprese salad this Memorial day you can be confident that you are serving your friends and family a delicious gift of health. Buon appetite!

1 pint Red Cherry or Grape Tomatoes, cut in half
8 oz container Fresh Mozzarella (Ciligene 2 sprigs Fresh Basil, finely chopped 3 TB Extra Virgin Olive Oil Kosher Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper 2 cups Arugula, for serving Remove stems from Portobellos. Using the back of a teaspoon, carefully scrape out gills from inside of mushroom cap discard. Gently peel off skin from top of mushroom cap, exposing white flesh underneath. (Removing the skin and gills not only cleans the mushrooom, without using water which can make them soggy, but also allows the flesh to absorb the marinade better and makes them juicier when cooked.) Set the mushrooms aside in a shallow baking dish or on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the insides of each mushroom generously with salt & pepper. Drizzle with 2TB Balsamic vinegar and 2TB Olive Oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to marinate at least 20 minutes (up to 2 hours) at room temperature. Meanwhile, slice cherry tomatoes and mozzarella balls in half. Toss with a sprinkling of salt & pepper as well as the basil, reserving about 1TB of basil for garnish. Set aside in refrigerator until ready to use. Turn on your grill. Heat to 500F degrees and place mushrooms, ‘gill side up’ on hot grill. Grill about 5 minutes, depending on size, until they start to release their juices and begin to shrink up a bit. Flip mushrooms over, pouring accumulated juices into the other mushrooms as you go. Grill another 3-5 minutes until fully cooked through but still plump and juicy. Arrange Arugula on the bottom of a serving platter. Place mushrooms on top. Fill each mushroom cap with reserved tomatoes and mozzarella, piling it high. Drizzle remaining 1TB each Balsamic and Olive Oil over the top of mushrooms and arugula. Sprinkle again with salt & pepper and scatter top with reserved 1TB basil. Heat grill to high. Brush mushroom caps on both sides with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill, cap side down, until slightly charred, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the mushrooms over and continue grilling until just cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes longer. Whisk together the shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil until emulsified.
