- 4 Portobello mushrooms
- A handful of cherry tomatoes
- A handful of arugula leaves
- Small wedge of brie cheese
- Olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
Clean and remove the stems from the four portobello mushrooms. Pat dry with a paper towel. Brush or spray both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
Grill the caps, rounded side down for 8 to 10 minutes until mushrooms are tender and hot. Turn them only once. Choose your preferred method to grill: BBQ, grill pan, oven….
Assemble the Minions! Just kidding – assemble the mushrooms! While the mushrooms are cooking, thinly slice the brie cheese (2 pieces per mushroom should do). Wash and dry the arugula. Wash, dry and slice the cherry tomatoes. When the caps come off the grill, immediately top them with cheese. Add the arugula and drizzle with a little more olive oil. Add a few slices of tomato and serve. Enjoy!
