This week's "Meatless Monday" Recipe of the Week is Grilled Portobello with Basil Mayonnaise Sandwich. Thank you to Anita for passing this one along to me!
Grilled Portobello with Basil Mayonnaise Sandwich
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup light olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
6 portobello mushroom caps
1/2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
6 whole grain buns, split, toasted
1 tablespoon butter
6 leaves lettuce
6 tomato slices
1 - Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl.
2 - Arrange the portobello mushrooms gill-side up on a tray or baking sheet. Brush the mushrooms with some of the vinegar mixture, and allow to marinate for 3 to 5 minutes.
3 - Place the marinated mushrooms on the preheated grill, gill-side down. Grill mushrooms until tender, brushing both sides of the mushrooms with the remaining marinade, about 4 minutes on each side.
4 - Mix the mayonnaise, dijon mustard, lemon juice, and basil in a small bowl. Butter the toasted kaiser rolls, then spread with the mayonnaise mixture. Divide the mushrooms, lettuce, and tomato slices evenly to make 6 sandwiches.
