Broiled Portobello Mushroom with Toppings


Some of the best color combinations involve red and green. This is a perfect example. if you’ve been on the fence about eating mushrooms this is the time to try again. Cooking them in the broiler for 5 -7 minutes allows them to stay firm when you cut into them. To me this is an ideal way to eat mushrooms. i don’t care for mushy or slimy. I don’t mind raw but when you cut into them they tend to break apart. 


I’ve read many times not to wash mushrooms but I do give them a quick rinse and then dry them carefully with a paper towel. 


  • 1 medium shallot, sliced
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, seeds removed and sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 1 6 ounce package portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard (Aldi currently has this during their seasonal items sale)
  • 1/2 cup shredded goat gouda cheese ( add if you like cheese with a lot of flavor)


  1. Heat pan on medium heat for 2 minutes and then spray with oil
  2. Add sliced shallots and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally
  3. Place sliced peppers in pan and cook another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally
  4. Turn on broiler
  5. Set aside pepper and onion mixture
  6. Clean out pan and reheat 1-2 minutes on medium heat
  7. Spray with oil and add chopped broccoli
  8. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook 3 minutes
  9. Place mushrooms in oven safe glass pie pan and spray mushrooms with oil on both sides
  10. Smear whole grain mustard onto each mushroom, making sure to cover as much of the tops as possible( you want to taste it in each bite)
  11. Put mushrooms in broiler and broil 5 minutes
  12. Remove mushrooms from broiler and sprinkle on goat gouda cheese
  13. Place back in broiler for 2 minutes, watching carefully
  14. While waiting for mushrooms to broil, plate broccoli
  15. Mushrooms may give off some liquid when cooking, that’s ok, place broiled mushrooms on top of broccoli
  16. Position shallots and peppers on top of mushrooms and serve with some crusty bread ( which I forgot to add to my photo)
