These tequila grilled mushrooms aren't for the kids! Tequila-flavored portobellas are an impressive dish to bring to a barbecue or cookout. You can eat them plain, or place your tequila shrooms on a bun and eat them like a veggie burger or veggie sandwich. Who says vegetarians and vegans can't barbecue!?

  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 portobella mushrooms, stems removed


Whisk together the tequila, margarine, olive oil, lime juice and garlic. Allow to sit for at least ten minutes.

Baste the portabella mushrooms with the tequila mixture, then place on grill.

Allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes, then turn and baste with more of the tequila mix and cook for another minute or two. Top with additional tequila mixture if desired before serving.
