Garlic and Thyme Mushroom Skewers

Garlic and Thyme Mushroom Skewers

After a short marinade and just a few minutes on the grill, these mushroom kabobs pick up layers of bright, savory, and smoky flavor.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 2 lbs mushrooms (Button or cremini are our favorites)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme (Plus more for garnish)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Wooden skewers


  • Whisk together the lemon juice, soy sauce, thyme, cayenne, salt and pepper.
  • Cut the mushrooms in half or thirds if they're really big. Put them in a gallon zip top bag or a large bowl, then add the lemon juice mixture. Toss to coat, then let rest to marinate for 30 minutes.
  • While they're resting, soak 10 to 12 wooden skewers in water.
  • Skewer the mushrooms, then cook over a medium-high grill until soft and slightly charred, about 2 or 3 minutes per side.
  • Enjoy right away, or keep warm with foil until ready to serve.
