The savory simplicity of mushrooms grilled over hot coals is always a favorite summer flavor. Only a hint of garlic and parsley are needed to season these earthy rich fungi.



  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • Leaves from 1/4 bunch parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fruity olive oil
  • Salt
  • 1 lb. oyster mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed
  • 1/2 lb. white mushrooms, stemmed


  1. Preheat a charcoal grill. Combine garlic, parsley, olive oil, and salt to taste in a small bowl.
  2. Grill mushrooms over medium-hot coals, gill side up, without turning, basting often with parsley oil, until done, 5–10 minutes.
