Spring and summer weather present the perfect opportunity to grill your favorite foods. Why not enjoy some portobello mushrooms? Once grilled, this large, versatile mushroom can be served whole (burger-style) or in strips to add deliciousness to your plate.

2 portobello mushrooms, stems removed (gills optional, depending on preference)
1 tablespoon olive oil, butter, or combo of both
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste


  • Gently wash mushrooms (and gills if keeping; if not, scrape off) and let drain, stem side down.
  • Preheat a covered outdoor grill (or stovetop grill pan with cover) to medium high.
  • In a saucepan, heat oil and/or butter, and stir to combine with lemon juice and garlic.
  •  Remove from heat, and brush mushrooms generously with mixture, reserving extra mixture in a dish.
  • Grill covered, stem-side down, for about 8 minutes.
  • Brush tops with mixture, flip, and grill for 6–8 minutes or until tender and nicely browned.
  • Lightly salt and pepper and slice into strips or keep whole for mushroom burgers.

Serves 2. Prep time, 5–7 minutes; cook time, 15–20 minutes.
