Caprese Stuffed Mushrooms

By Bobby Lozano & Heather Anzallo

We love stuffed mushrooms, and decided to layer the favorite caprese salad on top of hearty portobello mushroom caps. This vegetarian dish is stuffed with melted mozzarella cheese, cherry tomatoes, and topped with shredded fresh basil. Serve as a side dish, or as a light entrée option, these portobello will be a new fresh favorite.
