1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon olive oil

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine mushrooms and oil/balsamic vinegar to taste. Close bag and gently toss until evenly coated. Marinate 30 to 60 minutes. Remove mushrooms to a plate and season both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat a grill pan over medium heat then coat with cooking spray.

Place mushrooms on grill pan and cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, or until mushrooms are heated through.

If desired, sprinkle garlic and herbs on mushrooms. Top with mushrooms, tomato, onion and condiments of choice. Serve immediately.
