Filled portobello mushroom

For many many years I didn’t like mushrooms at all. And I mean it. Then one day I ordered this dish in a restaurant that had a portobello mushroom in it. My world changed that night. – Or at least I got over my mushroom trauma. I absolutely loved the portobello mushroom! Needless to say, I really like this starter:

  • 4 big portobello mushrooms
  • 3 spring onion stems OR
  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 pot of basil
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 0,5 tsp salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
  • 4 slices of parma ham
  • 1 ball of mozzarella

Chop the spring onions and basil. Heat the olive oil on a frying pan and sauté the chopped onions. Season with chopped basil, salt, black pepper and balsam vinegar. Set the onion filling onto the mushrooms (remove the mushroom stems)  and rip some mozzarella cheese on top of the onion filling. Do use a ball of real mozzarella and not the ready ground mozzarella that’s sold in bags. They’re two different cheeses :) Bake in 250°C, until the cheese melts. Decorate with parma ham and basil leaves.

Original recipe from:
Viides Glorian ruokakirja (a Finnish food magazine)
