2 garlic cloves, pressed (divided)
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 bunch cilantro
Freshly milled black pepper
2 portobello mushrooms
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Remove the Portobello stems. Mix a clove pressed garlic with the balsamic vinegar and spoon this mixture over the Portobello caps. Set aside while you prepare the guacamole.
Put the other clove pressed garlic in a bowl with the olive oil, lime juice, and avocado. Mash with a fork.
Remove the cilantro leaves from the stems. Wash and spin-dry the leaves. Chop finely.
Stir the chopped cilantro into the avocado mixture. Taste, adding more lime juice if necessary.
Bring a stovetop grill plate to high heat. Place the mushrooms on the grill for about 2 minutes per side. If you don’t have a grill plate, put them in the oven under the broiler.
Using an ice cream scoop, form balls with the guacamole and place them on the mushrooms before serving.
