Ingredients
  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps, 5 inches in diameter
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, optional
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 whole-wheat buns, toasted
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 2 bibb lettuce leaves, halved

  • Methods/steps
    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.
    5. Place each mushroom on a bun and top with 1 tomato slice, 1 onion slice and 1/2 lettuce leaf. Serve immediately.
