Previous Next 2 of 5 Portobello mushroom burgers

Instead of meat for a main dish, try a hearty portobello mushroom burger. Marinate a large portobello mushroom (or several if you're sharing this dish) in French or Italian dressing. If you prefer, make your own marinade by mixing together 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 clove of minced garlic, and pepper or other herbs, such as rosemary, to taste. Marinate the portobello mushrooms for 15 to 30 minutes. Grill the portobello mushrooms over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve alone or on a whole-grain bun with healthy condiments and enjoy. Instead of grilling, you can also broil these mushrooms using the medium setting.
