Balsamic Grilled Mushrooms Will Be Your New Favourite Summer Side

Mushrooms can get sidelined at a barbecue as the lame side dish for vegetarians, but when tossed in a balsamic-soy glaze, they'll get all the attention. Here are some tips to consider before getting started.

1) Don't wash your mushrooms-clean them.

There's a difference. If you're buying a carton of mushrooms prepackaged from the store, chances are they're already clean. Regardless, the way to clean them isn't to run them under the sink. Mushrooms are like sponges-they'll soak up a ton of moisture, which can lead to sogginess. Instead, wipe excess dirt away with a damp paper towel.

2) Pre-soak your wooden skewers.

Whenever you're grilling kebabs, it's always the safest bet to pre-soak wooden skewers for 20 to 30 minutes before throwing them over the grates.

3) Have fun with the marinade.

Don't have balsamic? Don't sweat it. Try sherry vinegar instead. (It's not as sweet!) Have some fresh thyme or rosemary? Chop up the leaves and throw in couple small pinches.
