Servings: 12 mushrooms
Calories: 15kcal

Ingredients

  • 12 fresh whole mushrooms button or crimini
  • 2 small plum tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2-3 tablespoons goat cheese crumbled
  • fresh basil
  • sprinkling of salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Heat barbecue to medium heat.
  • Wash the mushrooms and pull out the stems (save the stems for another recipe!). Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the tomatoes, garlic and balsamic vinegar.
  • Spray a vegetable grilling tray well with oil. Gently spoon the bruschetta into the mushroom caps (you're going to want to discard as much liquid as possible) and arrange on the tray.
  • Grill for 8-10 minutes, until mushrooms are tender and cooked through.
  • Immediately place a small spoonful of goat cheese on the warm bruschetta, scatter the basil leaves, and sprinkle generously with salt & pepper.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

Storage
These mushroom caps do not keep well, and I do not recommend prepping them ahead.
Recipe tips
  • save the mushroom stems and use them for other recipes that call for vegetables: stir fries, frittatas, etc
  • try to strain off as much liquid as possible when stuffing the mushroom caps
  • feel free to swap the goat cheese for parmesan or mozzarella
  • you absolutely need a vegetable grilling plate to keep the stuffed mushrooms from falling through the grates of your barbecue
  • spray the veggie grilling plate generously before adding the mushroom caps
  • to take these over the top, drizzle with balsamic reduction before serving
  • this recipe makes 12 mushrooms, so be sure to double or triple if you are serving a crowd
