Spicy Grilled Trumpet Royale™ Mushrooms
by Bob Engel
Trumpet Royale™ are great on the grill. They have a firm, meaty texture and a natural affinity for sweet and hot spices. Any good Asian grocer or health food store will have garam masala, a traditional Punjabi blend that comprises eight to a dozen or more different spices including cinnamon, cumin and coriander.
4 ounces king oyster mushrooms, such as Trumpet Royale™
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaf
¾ teaspoon garam masala
¼ teaspoon salt
Smaller mushrooms may be left whole, cut larger ones in half. Combine all ingredients except mushrooms and whisk. Add mushrooms and toss to coat. Grill on hot grill, turning once, until brown grill marks show. May also be oven-roasted for five minutes at 450 °. Side dish for two or three or garnish for six or more servings.
