Balsamic Portabella Mushroom Wraps with Basil Mayonnaise

Balsamic Portabella Mushroom Wraps are one of my new favorites!

I am a lifelong fan of mushrooms, and I enjoy them just about any way you can prepare them. More often than not, mushrooms appear in my menu as a side dish, topping, or appetizer. This recipe, however, features the hearty portabella mushroom as the star.

The inspiration for this fast + easy wrap are the flavors of summer that I love: balsamic, basil, and tomato. Mushrooms are so versatile, I knew they would be a perfect pairing.

Not only is this recipe super tasty, but it is also light and healthy. Even with a little of our basil mayo. 🙂 I couldn’t resist.

Here’s what you need to whip up these yummy wraps for yourself.

Ingredients Needed to Make Mushroom Wraps:

  • Large portabella mushrooms
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Spinach sandwich wraps
  • Tomato
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Mayonnaise
  • Basil leaves
  • Garlic
  • Lemon
  • Sea salt + black pepper

Mushrooms are grown and harvested all year long, so it is usually easy to find a wide variety of fresh mushrooms for this recipe.

TIP: Fresh mushrooms should be firm, smooth and dry on the outside (but not dried out). Many mushrooms will keep for one week in the fridge before you use them. Click here for more tips on selecting, storing and cleaning mushrooms from the Mushroom Council.

How to Make Basil Mayo:

  1. In a small food processor add the mayo, fresh basil leaves, crushed garlic cloves, the juice of half a lemon.
  2. Pulse and process until the basil is chopped and the mixture is the desired consistency.
  3. Taste, add salt and pepper as desired, and pulse again to combine.
  4. Transfer to a bowl or small jar and chill until ready to serve.

I like to make the basil mayonnaise first so it is ready to go when I’m ready to make the wraps. Also, making it ahead of time lets the garlic and basil flavors develop.

How to Make Balsamic Portabella Mushroom Wraps:

  1. First, prepare the clean and dry portabellas by removing the stem and scooping out the gills (soft inside brown material) with a small spoon.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Next, brush both sides of the mushrooms with the balsamic mixture. Turn them cap side DOWN on a baking sheet. Pour the remaining balsmic and oil over the mushrooms. Set aside for several minutes to give the mushrooms time to absorb the flavors.
  4. Heat a well-oiled grill or grill pan to medium high. Place the mushrooms cap side DOWN on the grill. Grill approximately 3 – 4 minutes. Flip, and cook an additional 3 – 4 minutes.
  5. Then transfer to a dish and cover with foil. When ready to serve, slice the mushrooms into thin strips.
  6. To assemble, evenly spread the basil mayo over a spinach wrap. Place a handful of chopped lettuce in the center. Top with tomato slices, parmesan cheese, and the mushroom strips.
  7. Carefully fold by tucking in each side, then folding it over on itself, burrito style. Slice and serve with more of the basil mayo if desired.

You can prepare the mushrooms on the grill, on the stove top on a grill pan or skillet, or in the oven. That is just how easy it is to cook with mushrooms.

TIP: After you brush the mushrooms with the balsamic and oil mixture, pour the remaining balsamic over the top of the mushrooms with the cap down. This creates little “mushroom bowls” that soak up all of that tangy-sweet flavor.

More Tips on this Mushroom Recipe:

  • For the best tasting results, select only the freshest, firm, dry mushrooms from the produce section of your local grocer.
  • If you don’t have a grill, prepare the mushrooms in an oiled skillet or under the oven broiler.
  • Cover the mushrooms with foil after cooking. This will help them stay soft while you are waiting to prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  • Swap out parmesan for mozzarella cheese if preferred.
