Italiano Portobello Mushrooms

This portobello mushrooms side dish is superbly easy to make, and is a wonderfully delicious side to any meal.


  • 4 Portobello mushrooms
  • 1/4 C. olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme, Chopped (or 1/2 tsp. dried)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved


Remove thick end of Portobello mushroom stems, leaving about 1/2 inch (1 cm) attached to cap. Place, smooth side up, in large, shallow glass dish. Combine oil, vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper; pour over Portobello mushrooms, turning and brushing to coat evenly. Let stand for 15 minutes. Reserving marinade, place mushrooms, smooth side down, on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook for 5 minutes. Turn and baste with marinade; cook, covered, for about 3 minutes or until Portobello mushrooms yield to the touch when pressed. Arrange Parmesan over top; cook Portobello mushrooms covered for about 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
