Ingredients

**portabello mushrooms, smaller sized ones
**tomatoes, roma
**thai chili paste
**cilantro, fresh
**cheese, asadero or your favorite
**salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Slice tomatoes in fairly thick slices, if you are using a smaller size portabello, you will need on one slice per portabello.
2
Drizzle olive oil on both sides of portabello and tomato slices. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper if desired.
3
Place on med heat grill and cook on both sides until tender. The tomatoes will cook quicker than the mushroom.
4
Remove and place portabello on plate, top with a little cheese and grilled tomato. If necessary you can pop into micro for a few seconds to melt cheese, or place several on a baking sheet and place in hot oven or low broiler just long enough to melt cheese.
5
Top with a healthy dallop of Thai chile paste and some fresh chopped cilantro. Salt to taste.
6
FYI I did not drizzle with balsamic vinegar but I bet that would add an awesome layer of flavor.
