Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Ingredient List

Serves 6

* 6 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed, gills scraped out
* 2 cups Syrah red wine
* 2 shallots, chopped (¼ cup)
* 1 clove garlic, chopped (1 tsp.)
* 8 black peppercorns
* 2 sprigs fresh thyme
* 6 toasted whole-wheat hamburger buns
* Soy mayonnaise, onions, tomatoes, and arugula for garnish


1. Poke holes all over mushrooms, making sure not to break them. Place in large glass baking dish.

2. Combine wine, shallots, garlic, peppercorns, and thyme in small saucepan, and season with salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes. Pour wine mixture over mushroom caps, and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate 2 hours.

3. Preheat grill or broiler. Remove mushrooms from marinade, and discard liquid. Grill mushrooms 5 minutes on each side, or until browned and juicy. Serve on buns with burger fixings.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
