Today I am sharing this recipe for vegetarian Teriyaki Portobello Mushroom Kabobs. This quick and easy recipe is one that I developed for the Mushroom Channel. I am really thrilled how great it came out. The slightly nutty and spicy teriyaki really compliments all of the ingredients in this easy summer recipe. Bonus it makes a great vegetarian dinner option.
Kabobs are one of my go-to summer recipes as they are easy to make, and there is minimal cleanup. As well, they are pretty versatile, and you be as creative as you want. For instance, Lenny thinks pineapple shouldn’t be included with savory, but then he tried this recipe and was hooked. We think you will love it too!
Recipe: Teriyaki Portobello Mushroom Kabobs
1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1 cup mirin
1 cup of soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon sriracha sauce
4 large portabella mushrooms
1 fresh pineapple
1 large red onion
Place the brown sugar, mirin and soy sauce in a small saucepan and place over medium heat, and stir to dissolve the sugar. Reduce the heat and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. This will take 40 – 50 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the sesame oil, and then let cool.
Core the pineapple and onion into even sized cubes. Using a paper towel or mushroom brush remove any dirt from the mushrooms. Remove the stem, and then cut into quarters. Evenly skewer the mushrooms, pineapple, and onions.
Preheat the grill to 400.
Lightly spray or drizzle olive oil on each skewer, then place on the grill. Baste with some of the teriyaki sauce. Grill until lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes.
Turn over the kabob, baste with more teriyaki and grill another 3-5 minutes until the mushrooms and onions are cooked throughout and the pineapple is caramelized.
