Mushrooms are nature's greatest decomposers, disassemblers, and by far better than and more powerful than bacteria, animals, and plants.
Immunity-boosting substances called beta-glucans are abundant in several mushroom species, too. It has been seen that even at lower level, white button mushroom, Crimini, maitake, oyster, and shiitake mushroom extracts had immunity boosting substances.
And recent research found breast-cancer-fighting compounds such as Cancer fighting immune cell Natural Killer cell, or NK cell in maitake, crimini, portabella, oyster, and white button.

Points to remember while grilling the mushrooms
Do not wash your mushrooms—clean them.
Because washing them with water will results in soggy ones as they tend to absorb the water. They are like sponges—they will soak up a ton of moisture. Instead, wipe excess dirt away with a damp paper towel
You can grill the small mushrooms like this, if you are using big portobello mushroom then you need to adjust the cooking time.
Another point to remember is that do not cook too long as they become chewy and dehydrated. So, check your grill and cooking time according to you which mushroom you are grilling.
If you are using a bigger mushroom, make sure to baste them with the butter/ oil and soy sauce mixture every few minutes and again every time you flip them.
