In the summer, one of my favorite meatless meals is hearty grilled portabella mushrooms. Usually I just toss them in some olive oil, balsamic, salt, and pepper but lately I have been adding lot of spices to mix things up and these blackened portabellas are just so delicious. To balance out the spice, I like to serve them with a quick homemade garlic yogurt sauce. They are delicious on their own, served with some rice or quinoa, as a burger, or sliced up as mushroom tacos.

1

Brush the mushrooms with the olive oil and sprinkle with blackening seasoning. You may want to add extra seasoning depending on how spicy you like it. Add salt if it isn't already in the blackening seasoning. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes (up to 2 hours) to deepen the flavor.

2

Meanwhile mash the garlic and salt together using a mortar and pestle or the back of a kitchen knife to form a paste. Add that to the yogurt along with the lemon juice. Place in the fridge until you are ready to eat. You can make this in advance for a deeper flavor and also can add your favorite fresh herbs.

3

When ready to cook, grill the mushrooms for 3-5 minutes per side until tender and cooked through. You can also broil them for 3-5 minutes per side if you don't have a grill or grill pan. Serve with yogurt sauce.
