Balsamic and Herb Mushrooms

I love eating the large mushrooms and although jam packed with flavour and vitamins they are sometimes a little boring so I decided to marinade giving them just that extra little zing. The marinade was a basic combination of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and herbs.

These were cooked over direct heat on the weber whilst Noel cooked the steak but they could be easily (and I have) roasted in the oven.

Balsamic and Herb Mushrooms

Serves: 8
Points per serve: 1

8 large or 16 medium mushrooms
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup red wine
1 tablespoon dried oregano flakes
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
pinch of salt
freshly ground black pepper

Place mushrooms in a large snap lock bag.

In a small jug mix together remaining ingredients, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Pour of mushrooms, seal bag and toss mushrooms around ensuring mushrooms are well coated.

Cook until soften and starting to darken, turning several times.

If cooking in the oven:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Place mushrooms on a lined oven tray or baking dish. Cook for 20 - 30 minutes turning several times.
