Savory and sweet, these earthy delicacies will upgrade even the most basic ballgame feast.

  • 2 Portobello mushrooms, stems removed and sliced lengthwise
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 Tbs tamari
  • 2 Tbs rice syrup
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • 2 Tbs vegetable broth


  • Combine last 6 ingredients in a small jar or bowl. Pour marinade over mushrooms arranged in a single layer in a baking pan. Turn the mushrooms so both sides are coated. Marinate 1 hour, flipping mushrooms occasionally.
