Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers

These meaty mushrooms are marinated in Syrah, a medium-bodied red wine, for two hours before grilling. They can be served with a fruity white or full-bodied red wine.



Ingredient Line: 
6 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed, gills scraped out
Ingredient Line: 
2 cups Syrah red wine
Ingredient Line: 
2 shallots, chopped (ΒΌ cup)
Ingredient Line: 
1 clove garlic, chopped (1 tsp.)
Ingredient Line: 
8 black peppercorns
Ingredient Line: 
2 sprigs fresh thyme
Ingredient Line: 
6 toasted whole-wheat hamburger buns


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.

Glad to see some oil free recipes. More, please.

Whole wheat hamburger buns are loaded with gluten. What am I missing here when you talk about lowering gluten?
