Mushrooms are a staple in our vegetarian kitchen. There is quite a bit of research into the nutritional benefits of mushrooms, which indicates they are a great source of micronutrients, and B and D vitamins, and trace nutrients such as copper.
Mushrooms are a great vehicle for flavor and texture. Mushrooms add a savory, meaty bite to help you create satisfying and delicious meals. We add them to vegetarian chili, omelets, risotto and pilaf, portobellos for grilling or broiling, and our favorite cedar plank!
A couple of years ago we visited Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar, owned by John Howie. John Howie is an award-winning chef who is well known for his cedar plank cooking. Besides the beautiful cedar-planked salmon, we enjoyed gorgeous, flavorful, and texturally satisfying cedar plank mushrooms. The mushrooms were so well seasoned and cooked to perfection that they stood alone as a fantastic main course. We immediately knew we had to try these at home on our grill!
This recipe is so easy and so delicious it will become your go-to weekend special. Cedar-planked Mushrooms are easy to assemble ahead of time and require no fiddly final touches. The one thing you have to remember to do is soak the cedar plank at least an hour before cooking. Otherwise, preparation is a matter of cleaning and cutting the mushrooms and herbs, and mixing the marinade. We highly recommend using the fresh herbs as well as making or buying the Porcini Mushroom Rub. We also add this rub to mushroom soup and risotto for an additional amazing level of flavor.
