Mushrooms can be so intensely savory – and portabella mushrooms are some of the most meaty! Grilling them really enhances the flavor. Here I have cooked them with a very simple marinade to baste over while cooking. By the way – portobello, portabella and portabello mushrooms are all the same!

How to Make Grilled Portabella Mushrooms
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic paste and balsamic vinegar. Balsamic is the only vinegar that contains carbs, so I don't use it too often. Its flavor works perfectly with the mushroom but if you want to keep the carbs even lower, substitute the balsamic with red wine vinegar.
Update! Check out my new recipe for zero carb balsamic vinegar! It's perfect for this recipe!
Place the mushrooms on a hot grill, and baste with the oil mixture. Keep cooking the mushrooms until they become soft – turning and basting them regularly.
It is a good idea to end with the mushrooms facing up, to contain all those amazing juices and marinade! Cooking times will vary depending on what you have going on with the grill – but a rough guide is to allow 15-20 minutes.
Note – you could also cook them on a grill pan inside!
Season with salt and black pepper and then garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
To eat the mushroom whole, you'll probably need to have some cloud bread buns prepared or some lettuce leaves (and a few napkins!). Alternatively, slice up the mushroom and serve them in a wrap or add it as a side item to whatever amazing protein you have going on the grill!
