Meatless Monday: Portabello Mushroom Burgers


4 portobello mushroom caps
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
4 (1 ounce) slices provolone cheese


1.Place the mushroom caps, smooth side up, in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, basil, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour over the mushrooms. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes or so, turning twice.
2.Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
3.Brush grate with oil. Place mushrooms on the grill, reserving marinade for basting. Grill for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until tender. Brush with marinade frequently. Top with cheese during the last 2 minutes of grilling.

Note: These are great topped with raw or sauteed onions, roasted red peppers, mixed greens and avocado. Also, if you don't have a grill or don't feel like braving the cold, these are just as good broiled in the oven or toaster oven. Enjoy!
