Ingredients

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • balsamic vinegar
  • salt and black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons oil-free pasta sauce (such as 365 Organic)
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 3 ounces zucchini , shredded, chopped, or julienned (about 1/2 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons sweet red pepper , diced
  • 4 olives kalamata olives , sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 cups hummus (see notes for Kalamata version)
  • fresh basil leaves or other herbs , minced

Instructions

  • Wash the portobellos well. Cut off the stems and remove the gills with a spoon. Pat the insides dry and brush or spray both sides with balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle the inside with salt and pepper.
    Removing Gills from Portobello Mushroom
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of pasta sauce inside each mushroom and sprinkle it with garlic. 

Air Fryer Instructions

  • Preheat the Air Fryer to 330F. Place as many mushrooms as will fit in a single layer or use a rack to hold two layers. (You may need to do this in batches, depending on the size or your air fryer and portobellos.) Air Fry for 3 minutes.
  • Remove mushrooms and top each one with equal portions of zucchini, peppers, and olives and sprinkle with dried basil and salt and pepper. Return to the Air Fryer for 3 minutes. Check mushrooms and rearrange if using a rack. Return to the Air Fryer for another 3 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Place on a plate, drizzle with hummus and sprinkle with basil or other herbs.  If you want, you can put the portobellos back into the air fryer briefly to warm the hummus.

Oven Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Place the sauced portobellos in a baking dish and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and top each one with equal portions of zucchini, peppers, and olives and sprinkle with dried basil and salt and pepper. Return to the oven and cook until mushrooms are tender, abut 15 minutes. Place on a plate, drizzle with hummus and sprinkle with basil or other herbs. If you want, you can put the portobellos back under the broiler briefly to warm the hummus.

Notes

Kalamata Hummus is easy to make and makes a delicious topping for these personal pizzas. Simply make a batch of Hummus in the Blender, remove half of it to use as usual, and add 8-10 kalamata olives to the hummus remaining in the blender. Blend well.
