Balsamic Garlic Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Ahhh it’s Monday again!  This Monday is not just my typical Monday though!  I’m finally jumping on the band wagon and trying this Whole 30 challenge.  If you haven’t heard of the Whole 30 challenge it’s essentially clean eating for 30 days, so my friends that means no sugar, dairy, grains, legumes, alcohol.  They aren’t messing around!

“Established by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig (of Whole9) in April 2009, the Whole30® is  original nutritional program designed to change your life in 30 days. Think of it as a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system”.

What am I most terrified about you ask?  Of all the things with this lifestyle change for the next 30 days the thing I think I will miss most is my diary free coffee creamer sad, but true! Anyway in an effort to mix things up right out of the gate I made these Balsamic Garlic Grilled Portobello Mushrooms.  They are great as a side or as the main course with some other veggies.

Ingredients:

4 Large Portobello Mushrooms

1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

4 Cloves Garlic, minced

1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

In a large plastic Ziplock bag combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, black pepper and salt.

Then using a spoon lets prep the mushrooms.  I always remove the “gills” from the mushrooms, but its a preference really.  Using the spoon gently scoop out the “gills” and discard them; rinse the mushroom then place in the marinade.

Allow the mushrooms to marinate for 30 min or over night depending on how much time you have.  I’m all about doing things the night before so my week nights are hassle free.

Preheat the BBQ or a grill pan over medium high heat; remove the mushrooms from the marinade and place them on the grill.  Grill for until they are soft and tender approximately 5 minuets on each side.  I prefer mine a bit charred on the edges, so I leave them a bit longer.

Prepping my lunch for tomorrow too! Chicken and Asparagus 🙂

Remove from the grill then you can slice them and serve them as a side or the main dish.  These Balsamic Garlic Grilled Portobello Mushrooms remind me of a great steak!
