These juicy and tender grilled portobello mushroom steaks are AMAZING! They’re quick (ready in just 15 minutes!), easy, tasty and have all the best flavours of a smokey grilled steak, but vegan. The charred mushrooms have a lovely dense texture that’s perfect with the flavourful simple marinade. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. Make them on the grill, grill pan, barbecue or in the oven.
