Grilled Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed Two Ways

One of the great things about working from home is that I am much more aware of what I eat during the day (not that it always helps!).  Instead of spending $6-8 on a greasy lunch special full of who-knows-what, I can make better food choices by cooking out of my own fridge.  I know that not everyone has that luxury during the day, but even if you cook up a dish the night before to heat up the next day, you’ll be headed on the right track!

When I stopped in one of the local stores last week, they had portobello mushroom caps on sale.  They’re so great on the grill and their meaty flavor makes them a perfect vegetarian alternative to a burger.  However, I decided to stuff the mushroom caps I bought.  I have another Hello Fresh box coming on Monday so I’m trying to clean out as much of the fridge as I can by then.  That gave me the perfect excuse to use a few ingredients in my fridge to create stuffed portobello mushrooms two ways.

Caprese salad is one of my absolute summertime favorites (especially when made with juicy garden tomatoes)! So I stuffed one of my mushroom caps with a fancier take on tomato and basil salad.  I also had some crumbled feta, pesto, and artichokes in the fridge that were perfect to stuff my other portobello with!  

If you follow me on Snapchat, you already got a sneak peek of these amazing stuffed portbello mushrooms.  But I decided to share the recipe for these on the blog because they’re just that good!
