PrintEmail For the vegetarians invited to your barbecue, this is a great and satisfying “steak” alternative. The dish can also be baked in the oven 30 minutes at 400F. We also like this on a whole-wheat hamburger bun with lettuce, tomato and boat or feta cheese. Ingredients 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice1 teaspoon coarse salt1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper8 (4- to 5-inch diameter) portobello mushrooms, stems removed, wiped free of dirt6 to 8 sprigs fresh herb such as sage or oregano1 lemon, cut into wedges Instructions Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a baking dish large enough to hold the mushrooms in a single layer. Place mushrooms, top down, in sauce. Scatter half the fresh herbs on top. Let stand about 20 minutes. Heat grill to medium-high. Remove mushrooms from marinade. Place on grill rack and cook 20 to 25 minutes, turning once. Remove from grill to a platter. Squeeze lemon over mushrooms and scatter remaining fresh herbs on top. Serve hot or at room temperature. Serves 8. —Recipe adapted with permission from Lucinda Scala Quinn’s Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys (Artisan, 2009).
