How to Broil a Portobello Mushroom

Save

Portobello mushrooms are the answer for vegetarians or those watching their weight who want a thick, meatless dish they can sink their teeth into. These over-sized mushrooms have a meaty texture, without excess calories and fat. Portobello mushrooms are often grilled and served between bread as a burger. They can also be pan-seared, roasted, broiled and served in place of the meat dish at dinner. Broiling is one of the easiest ways to prepare portobello mushrooms.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 extra large portobello mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Sharp knife
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Broiler pan
  • Cooking spray
  • Tongs
  • Turn the oven to broil.

  • Remove the stems from the mushroom caps and discard.

  • Rinse the mushroom caps under running water and pat dry with paper towels.

  • Combine the olive oil, minced garlic, and salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.

  • Add the portobello mushrooms and toss until they are well coated.

  • Place the mushrooms with the stem side up a broiler pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil.

  • Broil the mushrooms for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender, about 3 to 4 inches away from the heat. Use tongs to flip the mushrooms halfway through broiling.

  • Remove the mushrooms and slice as you wish. Serve hot.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you enjoy spice, sprinkle the mushrooms with chili powder and cayenne pepper before broiling.
  • Leave the mushrooms to cook for a few minutes longer for an even firmer and meatier texture.
