Grilled Stuffed Portobellos and Bell Peppers


  1. Grilled Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

    4 large Portobello mushrooms

    Marinade: for one hour (approximate measurements)
    1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
    1 tsp Soy sauce
    ½ cup Olive oil
    2 cloves garlic
    Red pepper flakes
    Fresh ground pepper

    2 medium tomatoes (I used yellow tomatoes and a few red cherry tomatoes)
    1 tbsp Chopped red pepper (about 1/8 of a pepper)
    2 tbsp Caramelized red onions
    Fresh ground pepper
    1 tbsp Fresh Basil

    Mozzarella on top.

    Grill the empty mushrooms top side up for several minutes, flip them and fill with the tomato mixture, top with mozzarella and grill until cheese melts.

    I did these under the broiler, just make sure the mushrooms cook enough before you fill them.

    4 bell peppers

    Wild rice (cooked with some red pepper chopped)
    ¼ lb hamburger (cooked with onions)
    1/2 Caramelized red onion (with olive oil)
    Dash of Tabasco sauce
    Dash of chili powder
    Pinch of red pepper flakes
    Mozzarella cheese

    Mozzarella cheese (some mixed in and some to sprinkle)

    Stuff the peppers (after removing the seeds). Either cut them in half, stuff, and sprinkle cheese on top, or cook them whole and then cut them in half, top with cheese and broil for a few minutes.
