Tip: Make the most of your mushrooms — keep the stems of the for soups and stir-fries.

Ingredients

4 portobello mushrooms, stems removed
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
3/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
2 green onions, finely sliced

Preparation

  1. Place mushrooms in a large container with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.
  3. Add sauce to mushrooms, close the lid firmly and shake until all mushrooms are well coated.
  4. Allow them to marinate for a minimum of three hours, shaking occasionally.
  5. When ready to serve, grill on high heat with the lid of the barbecue closed for 10-15 minutes, flipping once.
  6. The mushrooms will reduce in size and you will see their juices begin to escape. Slice them into thin strips or keep them whole — you can serve them hot or cold.
