Grilled Portobello Mushroom Caps

There is nothing inherently summery about mushrooms, they are available year round, but grilling them is a summer treat and an easy way to add something meaty to a vegetarian meal.

I love to brush my mushroom caps with olive oil infused with garlic and rosemary and then add fresh cracked pepper and sea salt to the caps as they are grilling. The lightly charred edges and nicely dehydrated character of a grilled mushroom cap is very meaty and a great addition to tacos, pasta, or any other dish looking for a summertime make over.

Pair grilled Portobellos with the wines you would pair with grilled beef, just look for a lighter version.

Two to try:

Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé - Earthy, meaty Mourvedre in a full-bodied rosé style.

Fairview Wines Shiraz - South Africa is slowly making a name for its Shiraz and Fairview gives a clear reason why. Fresh, spicy and perfect for summer grilling.

    As a vegetarian, I've been waiting for this article since I found this site! I'll definitely be trying some of these pairings, especially the ones for portobello caps, which I absolutely love.

    Sylvaner and Savatiano? How about something that's available in our local markets? Preferably something made in our local wineries? I'm in Oregon, so I'm thinking Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, or Chardonnay. Maybe Pinot Noir rose.

    OK, I'll follow up on this theme with a couple more articles, perhaps something based around vegetarian autumn dishes and one paring vegetarian dishes with wines you can find locally!
