I have to share this recipe with everyone because it’s just too good to keep to myself! These smoky mushrooms have become a regular batch prepped item at my house. A few simple ingredients take mushrooms to an all new level. Enjoy them as a main course, wrapped up in a tortilla with your favorite toppings, on a chopped salad, in a nourish bowl with a grain and some greens, stuffed into a baked potato, then drizzled with my Vegan Ranch Dressing. Are you starting to salivate and think about how you might enjoy these delectable delights? Be careful about sharing them with the rest of the family, because once they discover how incredible the mushrooms taste, you will forever have to share! Even non mushroom eaters seem to like this recipe – a lot!Jump to Recipe
Hickory smoke balsamic vinegar, garlic & onion powder, powdered mustard, chipotle chili powder and freshly ground black pepper. They easily become the star of a Nourish Bowl with a grain, some greens and some beans. Add another drizzle of you favorite flavored or plain balsamic vinegar or my Vegan Ranch dressing.
Baby portobello mushrooms are perfect for this recipe.
I have also used the large portobello mushrooms from Costco sliced about 1/4 inch thick. They work equally as well.
A few simple ingredients transform plain mushrooms into something extra fancy. I am a huge fan of California Balsamic Smoked Hickory Balsamic. If you don’t have this one you could substitute with a thick and sweet balsamic – preferably one with 4% acidity and a drop or two of liquid hickory smoke. How much will be up to you. I love the Local Spicery Spices and here we are using, garlic powder, onion powder, Chipotle Chili powder, mustard seeds and freshly ground black pepper. If you don’t want the heat from the Chipotle you could use smoked paprika instead.

You can use a thick, sweet syrupy balsamic like this Napa Valley Naturals Grand Reserve with a little liquid smoke.

You may need to make a double or triple batch of these to feed the entire family. They go well with so many other plant foods you will want to have them with everything.
Hickory Smoked Balsamic – use a sweet reduced plain balsamic with 4% acidity and add liquid hickory smoke to taste.
Chipotle Chili Powder – substitute smoked paprika
Garlic & Onion Powder – use a dried herb of your choice
Instead of baking you could cook them on the stove top in a skillet, but you have to stir them often and keep an eye on them. I like to use the oven method because I don’t have to watch them closely or stir them frequently and I feel like they turn out better using the oven.
These mushrooms are awesome in tacos, burritos or burrito bowls. with mashed potatoes, corn and broccoli with some Vegan Ranch Dressing. You will love them on top of veggie burgers, on top of chopped salads, with rice, and they are delicious with beans and potatoes with salsa.

These mushrooms are so delicious! I didn’t have the Smoked Hickory Balsamic Vinegar so I sub’d with regular balsamic (mine had 6% acidity so I just added a bit of date syrup to it) and added my own liquid smoke. Turned out super flavorful. Been adding this to a simple bowl of rice and steamed veggies. Thanks for another great recipe NMNB!
