Marinated Mushrooms

While I love a good store-bought vegan meat burger patty or seitan sausage, nothing beats a marinated portobello mushroom. It’s so flavourful, and full of umami: pop it on a bun for a burger, or have it alongside veggies and whole grains. And did you know that mushrooms have immune-boosting superpowers?

Servings: 2 servings


  • 2 large portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp miso
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/4 tsp red chilli flakes


  • Mix all the marinade ingredients together.
  • Place the mushrooms (stem side up) in a baking pan.
  • Pour the marinade into the mushroom caps.
  • Heat your oven to about 200ºC (let the mushrooms sit in the marinade until the oven's hot).
  • Put the pan in the oven, and leave for about 15-20 minutes. The bigger (and thicker) the mushrooms, the longer they'll need.
  • Remove from the oven once they're looking soft and juicy.
  • Serve on a burger bun with vegan mayo, lettuce and tomato, or alongside some veggies and a whole grain.
