Ingredients

Instructions

Grilled Mushrooms

  • Whisk together marinade.
  • Pour marinade into a ziploc bag or container.
  • Add mushrooms to marinade and allow them to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  • When ready to cook, heat grill on high.
  • Wrap mushrooms in foil packets - see images above for foil packet tips. Cook on medium high heat for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through at the 10 minutes.
  • You can also make these mushrooms on skewers. Follow the same cooking time. These are our favorite skewers for grilling.

Oven Instructions

  • Whisk together marinade.
  • Pour marinade into a ziploc bag or container.
  • Add mushrooms to marinade and allow them to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet.

StoveTop Instructions

  • Whisk together marinade.
  • Pour marinade into a ziploc bag or container.
  • Cut mushrooms into smaller pieces (1/2 or 1/4) and add to marinade. Allow them to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Cook over medium high heat for 15-20 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Use a larger pan so the mushrooms have space to cook and cook uncovered so liquid can evaporate.

Notes

Substitutions:
  • Oil: You can use avocado oil, melted butter, or canola/vegetable oil instead of olive oil.
  • Vinegar: We used regular balsamic vinegar for this recipe but you can also do balsamic glaze, or flavor infused balsamic vinegar. I have not tried this with red white vinegar or apple cider vinegar. I wouldn't recommend it.
  • Mushrooms: Baby bella, portabello, white button, or really any other type of mushroom with work in this recipe.
  • Herbs: You can substitute fresh parsley/basil for dried. Use 1 tablespoon of fresh basil or parsley instead of the dried.
  • Spices: You could add red pepper flakes to make these spicier. Fresh rosemary would also be a delicious addition!
  • Grilled Mushrooms with Cheese: I'm sure these would be delicious sprinkled with feta or goat cheese once they come out of the oven!
  • Cooking Methods: See above for instructions on how to make these mushrooms on skewers or in the oven.
  • WW Freestyle Note: The total points for this entire dish are 8, but you aren't eating all of the oil/vinegar so I only count it for 4 points total.
