Serves: 8 person(s)
Yield: 8 x approx. 4 oz servings

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Extra Time: 2 hrs (for marinating)

Ingredients:

    5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 3/4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 tsp superfine sugar
    1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
    1 pinch each of salt and pepper
    7 oz button mushrooms
    1 each of a mix of vegetables for char-grill (such as sliced eggplant, bell pepper and squash)

Directions:

    Combine oil, vinegar, garlic, sugar, mustard, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Whisk well to combine. Add mushrooms. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or until mushrooms have absorbed marinade.

    In the meantime, char-grill (or grill, such as George Foreman grill) vegetables until done. Set aside.

    Spoon mushrooms into a bowl. Place on a platter with char-grilled vegetables. Serve with crusty bread. Serves 6 to 8.

Variations:

    Semi-dried tomatoes, shaved trimmed ham, low-fat cheese, and olives are all good ideas to add to an antipasto platter.
