Trumpet Royale Are Great on the Grill

Spicy Grilled Trumpet Royale

 Trumpet Royale™ are great on the grill. They have a firm, meaty texture and a natural affinity for sweet spices.  Any good Asian grocer or health food store will have garam masala, a traditional Punjabi blend that comprises eight to a dozen or more different spices including cinnamon, cumin and coriander. Think of it as the sweet spices from curry without the hot ones.


8 ounces king oyster mushrooms, such as Trumpet Royale™

3-4 Tablespoons olive oil

1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaf

1 teaspoon garam masala

¼ teaspoon salt


Smaller mushrooms may be left whole, cut larger ones in half. Combine all ingredients except mushrooms and whisk. Add mushrooms and toss to coat. Grill on hot grill, turning once, until brown grill marks show.  May also be oven-roasted for five minutes at 450 °.  Side dish for two or three or garnish for six or more servings.
