Portobello Mushroom (Burgers) with Balsamic Vinegar*

From Sharon McRae:   We sprinkle garlic powder, onion powder, and ginger over the mushrooms before baking. 


Portobello mushroom caps
vinegar (such as balsamic)
tamari or soy sauce (low sodium ideally) 
garlic cloves. 
black pepper 
(dried herbs if desired:  thyme, etc.)


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Drizzle the gills with balsamic vinegar, tamari, fresh ground pepper, garlic powder (or cut-up garlic pieces).
  • (Some would recommend brushing with olive oil or sprinkling on salt.  You can try it the first time if you feel you need to, but totally delicious without these less healthy ingredients).  
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until mushrooms are soft and have shrunken slightly.
  • If using tahini (sesame seed paste), before cooking add several small dabs of tahini around the mushroom.  Makes it even more delicious!

SERVE on hamburger buns with onion slices, tomato slices, & condiments.
OR, cut-up and add to a stir-fry, salad, or pasta.   
OR, cut-up and serve as a side dish, alone or mixed with other roasted veggies.
