Grilled Cremini Mushrooms with Balsamic Vinegar
Mushrooms are a great addition to any meal. They add depth and texture to a dish, but they are also low in calories and contain healthy nutrients. You can use them to replace meat in a variety of dishes, including burgers, chicken, and salads.
Grilled mushrooms are a great side to any meal, but they’re especially flavorful when marinated in balsamic vinegar. They’re quick and easy to make, making them a perfect addition to grilled meats or seafood. They’re also a good vegetarian option for those who are looking for more protein in their diets.
The key to making this recipe is to make sure the mushrooms are marinated before cooking. Marinating them allows them to soak up all the yummy flavors and become deliciously smoky.
First, trim the mushroom stems and clean the caps. You can leave the stems on if using cremini mushrooms, or remove them if you’re using portobello mushrooms. Next, drizzle the trimmed mushrooms with a little bit of olive oil. Then, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Finally, thread the seasoned mushrooms onto metal or wooden skewers (you can also use bamboo skewers).
You’ll need to grill the seasoned mushrooms for about 12 minutes, depending on their size. You’ll want to be sure to flip them over once to get the best flavor from both sides.
Once you’ve finished grilling, transfer the skewered mushrooms to a serving platter. Top them with fresh parsley and enjoy!
When grilling mushrooms, it’s important to preheat the grill and be careful not to burn them. Ideally, you’ll use a hot grilling basket to ensure an even cook.
While grilling the mushrooms, be sure to brush them with the marinade and use a spatula to move them around. This will help them to cook evenly and make them more flavorful.
The mushrooms can be soaked in the marinade for up to an hour, but you don’t want to leave them there too long or the marinade will thin out and they won’t be as flavorful.
The savory marinade will also keep the mushrooms from drying out and getting soggy when cooked. You can serve these grilled mushrooms with just about any meal, but they’re particularly tasty alongside a smoky BBQ or steak dinner.
Creamy Garlic Mushrooms
Mushrooms are a very healthy vegetable, and this simple creamy garlic mushroom recipe is a great way to enjoy them. It’s a quick and easy side dish for any meal, but it also makes a delicious main course when paired with steak or chicken!
A medley of garlic, parmesan cheese and cream makes this creamy garlic mushroom sauce super flavorful. It’s incredibly easy to make and perfect for dinner parties!
For this recipe, you’ll need: cremini mushrooms, olive oil, onions, garlic, fresh herbs, lemon juice, heavy cream, and salt & pepper. You can also add a dash of red chili flakes for some extra heat, but it’s completely up to you!
Start by slicing the mushrooms into similar sized pieces. This will ensure they cook evenly. You don’t want the mushrooms to get too brown, but they should develop a nice golden colour in a few minutes of cooking.
Once the mushrooms are sliced, place them in a hot pan with a good amount of oil and cook over a high heat, stirring frequently to help release their moisture. Once they have browned, you can add the butter and cook for a further minute or two.
Next, add the herbs and stir to mix them with the mushrooms. It’s important to use fresh herbs here, as dried ones will have a strong flavour that will overpower the taste of the mushrooms. Oregano is especially good here, but thyme will also work well.
After a few minutes, remove the sliced mushrooms from the pan and place on a serving plate. Top with grated parmesan and serve immediately.
This simple, creamy garlic mushroom recipe is a mediterranean classic that’s sure to become a family favorite! It’s a delicious side dish that can be served with pasta or mashed potatoes, or it’s even perfect on its own with some crusty bread for mopping up all the yummy goodness.
It’s also a great recipe to have in your freezer, as you can reheat it easily later. However, be careful when reheating this dish, as it will thicken quickly in the fridge. If the sauce is too thick, simply add a little more stock or water to loosen it up.

You can even marinate the mushrooms in advance to save time on your meal. Just mix together the mushrooms, vinegar, tamari (if you’re using low sodium), sugar, and chives and refrigerate them for at least 2 hours or up to two days. Then, just before serving, take them out of the refrigerator and toss with the extra chives for a delicious and simple roasted mushroom side.
For the best results, you should wash the mushrooms and dry them off as much as possible before adding them to the pan. This will prevent them from becoming slimy and waterlogged after cooking, which can lead to a tougher texture.
Once the mushrooms are cooked and browned, add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in salt, pepper, and thyme if you’re using it.
Alternatively, you can saute the mushrooms in olive oil before adding the garlic. This will help prevent the garlic from burning and releasing bitter flavors.
