Caprese Portobello Mushrooms

A Caprese Salad is a dish near and dear to my heart. It contains fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. Three of my favorite things…yes, I sang that.  If you don’t know why… I don’t know if we can be friends.

I have seen this recipe on social media and it looks so good. Its almost always made for fresh tomatoes, and that’s okay, I am not against that at all… however I like this recipe with fire roasted canned tomatoes. I just like the taste … That is what makes recipes so much fun… they are changeable and personal.

Let me know what you think of these mushrooms, perfect for meatless Mondays and totally vegetarian!


You need:

5 to 6 portobello mushroom caps

1 can fire roasted tomatoes ( drained and rinsed)

1/2 cup oilve oil

fresh basil ( about five to 6 leaves , chopped)

8 ounces fresh mozzarella diced small

Start by removing the “gills” from the mushrooms, then using a dry paper towel, gently wipe the mushroom on both sides.

Rinse and Drain the tomatoes.


Divide the tomatoes between all of the caps. Sprinkle with the Goya
