Dijon-Marinated Portobello Mushrooms

29 Apr

Ahh, portobello mushrooms. The mature version of the button or crimini mushroom, portobellos have a nice, meaty texture and make nutritious replacements for burger patties or steaks. Raw portobellos are a very good source of Copper, Dietary Fiber, Folate, Manganese, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus, Potassium, Riboflavin and Selenium, and a good source of Iron, Magnesium, Thiamin, Vitamin B6 and Zinc (source). The selenium contained in these delicious fungi is said to assist with DNA repair, copper and iron help the flow of oxygen through our blood, zinc boosts immunity and helps heal wounds, and niacin has been linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease (source).

Marinated portobellos are delicious on salads and sandwiches (pictured below), in breakfast scrambles and wraps, or even enjoyed as a simple side dish.

    These were SO YUMMY! I did add a touch of balsamic vinegar to this along with the rest of the suggested ingredients and I also used regular white wine instead of cooking wine. Next time I fix them, and Yes, there will be a next time . . . I’m going to cook them on our George Foreman Grill.

      Yay! So glad you liked them, Angela! The balsamic vinegar and regular white wine sound like excellent additions. Enjoy! =)
