I saw these gorgeous Portabella mushrooms at Costco and it inspired me to make these easy, fresh and delicious mushrooms.
I sautéed them in a pan, but in summer just throw them on the grill for a healthy side.

Marinated Portabella Mushrooms
You can add 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme or dried basil to the marinate if you’re a fan of herbs.
I like to serve them with balsamic vinegar and olive oil or balsamic vinaigrette for the extra lettuce once I’ve eaten my share of the mushrooms!
