This was easy to make and tasted good. The mushrooms had a nice color also. The recipe doesn't indicate what to do with the balsamic vinegar so I just added it with the water. Next time I will add a little less of the balsamic vinegar and more of the mustard as that suits our preferences better.

Lemon juice is the key to this piquant and deeply colored side dish. The lemon sweetens the balsamic vinegar while adding it's own zing. I doubled the recipe using giant sized white mushrooms my husband had purchased (I would have preferred Portabellos). I followed the insructions as directed and served the mushrooms with BBQ grilled sausages, a combination of Italian, Bratwurst and Sicilian. A bit of chopped parsley would accent the dramatic color of the mushrooms.

Parsley's beautiful photo prompted me to try this recipe and I'm glad I did! It is already in my Tried and True recipe collection. Thanks Parsley and Kate!

I made this tonight, but with a few adjustments, because I was going to use a different recipe and then changed my mind. I sauteed 1 clove of minced garlic in a little Smart Balance, then followed the rest of the recipe (minus the oil since I used the SB) until about haflway through the reduction of the sauce. I decided to thinly slice 1 medium white onion in a little SB in another pan, then added it to the mushrooms. I threw in about another 1/2 tbsp bals. vin and 1/2 tsp dijon and continued to reduce it until the liquid was mostly gone and there was a glaze, like in the photo posted here, and then added 1 tbsp of the lemon juice. It sat for about 4 hours covered in a container (dinner got pushed back) and I popped in the microwave about 45 seconds to heat it up. The onions absorbed the flavor of the balsamic vinagrette and mustard wonderfully and my hubby and I were very pleased with the results. We spooned it over the top of Pepper Chicken, Pepper Chicken (we used chicken breast and grilled it though). For sides- baked some acorn squash (halved, face down in 1/4 inch of water, 40 min @ 400 degrees) scooped out the inside and stirred in a little brown sugar and smart balance, and baked potatoes (in the microwave rubbed with garlic olive oil, S&P, covered with wet paper towel). My husband loved it all and said all the flavors went very well together. He said it will be a tough dinner to beat! Thanks so much, we will make this many times more!

I didn't like these too much. They had a rich taste to them. You could definitely taste the dijon mustard. It wasn't too bad, but not to my liking either. It's just a personal preference.
