This healthy recipe is from the Mayo Clinic. The balsamic vinegar is really a nice complement to the mushrooms.

I liked this. I was in a rush, so I didn't marinade it for long, but it was still very tasty. I used my oven broiler (no BBQ) and my burger was perfectly cooked. I served it on a large hamburger bun with Veganaise, Cheddar, and lettuce. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove their stems. Place in a glass dish, stem (gill) side up.
  2. To prepare the marinade, in a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, water, sugar, garlic, cayenne pepper and olive oil. Drizzle the marinade over the mushrooms. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning mushrooms once.
  3. Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
  4. Grill or broil the mushrooms on medium heat, turning often, until tender, about 5 minutes on each side. Baste with marinade to keep from drying out. Using tongs, transfer the mushrooms to a plate and serve immediately.
