Grilled garlic butter mushrooms are a super easy to make, healthy, and delicious summer BBQ recipe. They make the perfect side dish recipe or meatless main course.



  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (gluten-free or coco aminos, as needed)
  • 4 garlic cloves, very finely minced, divided
  • 2 lbs. button mushrooms, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • A generous pinch of salt


  1. In a large bowl, mix the balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and half the garlic. Add the mushrooms and gently toss the mushrooms so they are coated in the marinade. Set aside on your counter for 30 minutes.
  2. In a small saucepan melt the butter and add the remaining garlic and a pinch of salt.
  3. Oil your BBQ grate and preheat your grill to medium. Skewer the mushrooms on kebab sticks. (See notes.)
  4. Grill the mushrooms for 5 minutes per side. When you flip them over, it is easiest to use two pairs of tongs. Set the grilled mushrooms on a plate and drizzle the garlic butter over the top. Serve immediately.


Skewers that are flat (as opposed to round) work best to prevent the mushrooms from spinning on the skewers when you flip them over.
