These Balsamic Mushrooms are full of flavor and complete any dish. You can serve it over your favorite main course or enjoy it in salads as well!
We are huge fans of mushrooms. They’re excellent as a main dish or even a side dish. Some of our favorite recipes with mushrooms are our black bean and mushroom burger, roasted asparagus and mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup, and broccoli mushroom stir fry.
Balsamic vinegar just takes mushrooms to another level and really gives them a robust flavor. We love serving them over cabbage or cauliflower steak, you could also serve them over your favorite steak or chicken dishes as well.
Recipe ingredients and notes:
- Olive Oil – you could also go oil-free by using broth or water.

Recipe Tips and Alterations:
- You can use any mushrooms you like, we prefer portabella mushrooms due to the rich flavor.
- Roast your mushrooms for even more caramelization or use a cast-iron skillet.
- This also works well with large portabella mushrooms on the grill.
- Use leftovers and make a fresh salad with quinoa, chickpeas, and fresh veggies with our Italian dressing.
How to serve:
We love serving it as a side dish or over a main course. It’s also delicious in salads. If serving as a side dish you can garnish with a little bit of fresh chopped herbs like basil or parsley.
