Lemon Thyme Grilled Zucchini Portobello

I bought a package of Portobello in hopes that it would inspire me. I’ve been falling into a cooking rut lately. Managing a household with an infant, a 1st grader, and a man child is wearing me down to say the least.

Tonight I sought some refuge in the kitchen.

Correction… on the grill.

I made the boys burgers and had fun with my Portobello mushroom. The only thing I did wrong… making one.

Lemon Thyme Grilled Zucchini Portobello It came out fantastic! “Meaty” and flavorful and totally hit the spot.

Here’s what I did…

  • 1 large Portobello mushroom
  • 6 slices of zucchini
  • A few rings of sweet green chile (bell pepper would work)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 tbsp)
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • pinch of kosher salt and Black Pepper
  • 1/2 ounce of munster cheese

Clean and prepare the the mushroom, zucchini, and pepper.

    You have inspired me to try portabello mushrooms and the sandwich thins. This looks wonderful. I also have to say that your early recipe for spaghetti squash is a fall favorite. Thanks so much for trying new things and showing them on your blog! Reply
