CHEESY GRILLED SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS


These make a very good appetizer...

Ingredients:
Shitake mushrooms ..... 8-10
Mozarella cheese ....... 1/4 cup
Oregano ............... 1 tbsp
Olive oil ............. 1 tbsp



To make the Sauce
Tomatoes ... 1 - 2
Garlic ......... 1 tsp
Chilli sauce .. 1 tbsp
Tomato ketchup .. 1 tsp
Oregano  ... 1 tsp 
Salt ........... to taste
Olive oil .... 1 tbsp

1. Heat oil in a pan and saute the garlic.
2. Add the blanched and chopped tomatoes and simmer to cook.
3.Add the sauces and tempering. Set aside to cool.

To Grill the Mushrooms:

1. Wash the mushrooms and remove the stems. Sprinkle salt.



2. In a frying pan pour 1 tbsp olive oil and place the mushrooms for sauteing. Turn them and simmer until they get half cooked and the colour is light brown.



3. Remove from the pan and line them in a greased baking tray.



4. Spoon a litle sauce and cheese on them. Sprinkle dried oregano.



5. Place them in a pre-heated oven for 4-5 minutes, until the cheese melts. If you have a grill place the tray under the grill to get a light brown crust on top.



Serve hot .
