I love the colors in this recipe and the flavors all harmoniously meld together.

When cleaning out your Portobello mushrooms, remove the stem by gently turning it and carefully remove the black gills using a spoon. Be gentle because the mushroom can easily break apart. You can reserve the stems and use them in soups or stocks but may want to discard after cooking and before eating because they are somewhat chewy…and not in a good way.
