The Unexpected Way To Get Perfectly Grilled Mushrooms
By KATIE LENHARDT
Mushrooms grow in countless varieties that can add unique flavors and textures to any dish, and these fungi are also loaded with vitamin D, antioxidants, and prebiotics. Grilling is one of the most underrated ways to cook mushrooms, but if you don't take care to grill them the right way, you might end up with a lackluster result.
Mushrooms contain a lot of water, and fully or partially pre-cooking them is one of the best ways to get rid of extra moisture, so you won't wind up with a hot mess of wet shrooms in your final dish. Instead of adding raw mushrooms directly to your grill, steam them first to cut down on excess moisture and cooking time.
Applying steam to mushrooms breaks down their interior air pockets, releasing extra moisture while thoroughly cooking them from the inside out. After steaming, drain your mushrooms well and let them rest overnight in the fridge, then toss them with your preferred oil and seasonings and grill them until they're perfectly charred.
