the Ingredients

Portobella Bruschetta
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 slices white bread, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, plus extra to garnish
  • 4 portabella mushrooms, stems removed
  • 200 grams buffalo mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
When life gives you the perfect edible dish, you fill it with blistered cherry tomatoes, melting buffalo mozzarella and a crunchy parmesan crumb. The only thing left for you to decide is whether you barbecue it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.


  • 01 Prepare the barbecue for direct and indirect cooking over medium heat (180° to 230°C). If using a Weber Q barbecue, set up your barbecue with a convection tray and a trivet.
  • 02 Lightly coat the cherry tomatoes with oil, then season with salt and pepper. In a food processor blitz together the bread, garlic, Parmesan, and 10 basil leaves until the mixture has turned into fine crumbs. Using a basting brush, brush the mushrooms all over with oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 03 Grill the cherry tomatoes over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until they just start to blister, about 4 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time. Remove from the barbecue.
  • 04 Assemble the mushrooms by placing the cherry tomatoes into the mushroom cavities. Tear the cheese into small chunks and add to the mushrooms. Top with the blitzed bread crumb mixture.
  • 05 Roast the portabella mushrooms over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, for 15 to 20 minutes. If you are using a Weber Q, place the mushrooms on the trivet. Roast the mushrooms until the crumbs are golden and the mushrooms are cooked to your liking.
  • 06 Finish the mushrooms with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
