Yield: 4 servings

1 Serving: 1 cup prepared mushrooms

Ingredients

1 pound brown crimini mushrooms, cleaned and cut into thirds
¼ pound portabella mushroom, cleaned and cut into thick slices
¼ pound morels, cut the very end off;  leave whole

3 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

Portabella Tostada with Avocado Crema and Tomato Salsa

Tasty grilled portabella tostadas are topped with fresh salsa and creamy avocado for a light and luscious Mexican meal.

Yields: 4

Serving Size: 2 prepared tostadas

Ingredients

Crema

1 ripe Hass avocado, diced
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Kosher salt

Salsa
1 cup finely chopped ripe tomato
¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
1 small jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

Tostadas
4 large portabella mushrooms, stems and gills removed
1 large red onion, cut crosswise into ½-inch slices
Extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons prepared fajita seasoning
2 large bell peppers, 1 red and 1 yellow, each cut into 4 planks
8 flour tortillas (8 inches)
2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

In a food processor blend the crema ingredients until smooth. Season with salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

In a medium bowl mix all of the salsa ingredients and season with salt. Set aside at room temperature.

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

Generously brush the mushroom caps and onion slices with oil and season evenly with the fajita seasoning.

Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the mushrooms, onion, and peppers over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until browned and tender, turning occasionally. The mushrooms will take 12 to 15 minutes, the onion will take 8 to 10 minutes, and the bell pepper will take 6 to 8 minutes. If necessary, to prevent the mushrooms from drying out, occasionally brush them with a bit more oil. Remove the vegetables from the grill and scrape off any blackened areas of the peppers. Cut the vegetables into thin strips.

Grill the tortillas on one side over direct medium heat, with the lid open, just until warm, 10 to 20 seconds. Turn them over, top each one with ¼ cup of the cheese, and grill just until the cheese melts. Remove from the grill and assemble the tostados with the grilled vegetables, salsa, and crema.

Grilled Portabella Pizzas

Pizzas cooked on the grill are a classic summer menu item, and swapping portabellas for pizza crust makes it a fast and simple dinner solution for busy summer nights.

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 1 portabella cap with sauce and cheese

Ingredients

4 large portabella mushrooms
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella (or 2 ounces crumbled feta)

Optional ingredients for seasoning and toppings: fresh basil leaves, sea salt, black pepper; and preferred pizza toppings (e.g., black olives, green peppers, pepperoni, etc.)

Directions

Gently clean portabellas with a damp paper towel. Trim the stems with a paring knife and use a spoon to scrape the dark brown gills from the underside of the cap. (Tip: Save the stems and gills to make mushroom stock.)

Arrange the sauce, cheeses and topping in small bowls and line them up on a work surface.

Brush the underside of the caps with olive oil and grill, oiled side down, for 3 to 4 minutes over a medium-high flame.

Place the caps on the work surface, cooked side facing up, and if desired season with salt and pepper. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of sauce around the cap. Go easy on the sauce as the mushrooms will give off liquid when they cook, and too much sauce can make them soggy. Sprinkle with cheese to cover, then add optional toppings if desired such as black olives, fresh basil leaves and green pepper. Gently place back on the grill (toppings facing up) and cook another 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Balsamic Portabella Salad

Grilled portabella mushrooms top baby greens in this meaty vegetarian salad.

Yield: 4 servings

Serving size: 1/2 portabella mushroom with 1 cup of greens

Ingredients

2 Portabella Mushrooms
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
Pinch of Sea Salt
1 Medium Yellow Onion
½ Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
Salt
4 Cups Organic Baby Greens
½ Cup Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Cup Marcona Almonds
1/2 Cup Crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese (or more to taste)
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
Salt/Pepper

Directions

Heat the grill to medium heat, while preparing other ingredients.

Peel and halve the onion. Slice into half moon shape slices, as thin as possible. On medium heat, add the butter to a sauté pan until fully melted, add the onions and a pinch of salt. Move around to coat. Continue to stir every few minutes as onions begin to caramelize and turn brown, about 15 minutes.

While onions are cooking, prepare mushrooms. Wipe them clean with a moist paper towel to remove dirt. Cut off the stem and brush each with half of the oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with sea salt. Put them on the grill with the gill side up to start and close lid, grill for 3 minutes on each side. Note: the freshness and mushroom may vary the cooking time. You want them to be fully warmed through, without getting too soggy. Remove and cool to room temperature.

Prepare salad. In a large bowl, combine the greens, gorgonzola and the tablespoon of the olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper, and toss gently. This is only lightly dressed, as the onions and mushrooms will also add some moisture to the salad. Cut the portabellas into slices. Top each salad with a quarter of the mushrooms, cheese and marcona almonds. Add more toppings to taste.
