With two pallets of portobellos in the building, it’s time for us at Community FoodBank to get creative! This easy side dish comes to us from our friends at feastingnotfasting.com.

Marinated and then baked, these portobello mushrooms are simply the best, whether as a side accompanying another entrée or as a vegetarian main dish.

Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 2

2 portabello mushrooms
2 Tbsp. soy sauce (use tamari if needed to be gluten free)
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
½ tsp. minced garlic
¼ tsp. minced or grated ginger root
½ Tbsp. olive oil

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
-Find a baking dish that will fit both mushroom caps. Add all other ingredients and stir to create marinade. Add mushrooms and rub sauce onto them. Let sit for 15 minutes, stem side down.
-Once 15 minutes is up, rub mushrooms again with sauce before placing dish in the oven.
-Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and turn mushrooms over. If there is any sauce left in the pan, spoon it over the mushrooms.
-Continue baking another 15 minutes.
-Remove and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
