Grilled Marinated Portobello Mushrooms

Main course mushrooms like these go with anything from summer salads to wintry wild rice dishes. They’re one of the best vegetarian dinners to pair with red wine. If you don’t have a grill, bake the mushrooms on a sheet pan in a 400° oven for about ten minutes.

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
