Grilling is an easy way to cook portobello mushrooms for use in a variety of main courses and side dishes. Grilling enhances the natural flavor of the mushrooms without the need for an abundance of spices or other ingredients. Grilled portobello mushrooms can be used as vegetarian burger patties; served tossed with feta or mozzarella cheese, shallots and heirloom tomatoes for a summer salad; or simply enjoyed as a side dish for grilled meats and vegetables.
