Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Recipe

Serves 4

2/3 cup chopped plum tomatoes

1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup chopped Kalamata olives

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary, or 1/8 teaspoon dried

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

4 portobello mushroom caps, 5 inches wide

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

DIRECTIONS:

Combine tomatoes, cheese, olives, garlic, 1 teaspoon oil, rosemary and pepper in a small bowl.

Preheat grill to medium.

Discard mushroom stems. Remove brown gills from the undersides of the caps using a spoon; discard gills. Mix the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, lemon juice and soy sauce in a small bowl. Brush the mixture over both sides of the caps.

Oil a grill rack (see Tip). Place the caps on the rack, stem sides down, cover and grill until soft, about 5 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and fill with the tomato mixture. Return to the grill, cover, and cook until the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes more.
