I was looking for a new way to use Portobello caps. I searched for recipes and found one similar to this on The Happy Herbivore's website. Of course, I had to alter it to make it my own! It is delicious. My husband hasn't stopped talking about it since dinner...

The perfectly meaty texture of these portobello mushrooms makes this an ideal entree for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. A wonderful blending of flavor and creativity. There's a hint of tangy flavor in these mushrooms. Yum!
