I first had these at a gourmet grilling night hosted by our Ward Relief Society. They were so good! We made them again on Friday night and loved them so I thought I'd post the recipe. The recipe calls for Portabello Mushrooms but any large mushroom will work.
P.S. I borrowed this pic from the Relief Society night.
Cut centers out of very large mushrooms.
Fill emptied mushrooms with pine nuts, chopped fresh garlic, slivered Parmesan cheese pieces.
Meanwhile, make a marinade consisting of:
1/2 C. Balsamic Vinegar
1 C. Olive Oil
1 tsp. coarse salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
12 leaves of fresh basil, finely sliced using a knife
Pour the marinade over the tops of the mushrooms, filling in around the pine nuts, cheese, etc.
Let sit for 30 minutes or more (up to 3 hrs.)
Grill over medium heat until tender, approximately 6-7 minutes. Rotate half-way to get cross-grilled look.
