Grilled Portabello Mushroom Stack

Recipe courtesy Bobby Flay
Show: Boy Meets Grill
Episode: Vegetarian Grilling
12 medium-sized portobello mushroom caps, wiped clean
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound baby spinach, washed and dried
4 ounces manchego cheese, thinly sliced into 8 pieces
Sherry Vinaigrette, recipe follows
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives, for garnish, optional

Heat grill to high. Brush mushroom caps on both sides with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill, cap side down, until slightly charred, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the mushrooms over and continue grilling until just cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes longer.

Stack the ingredients on each of 4 salad plates starting with a mushroom cap, a slice of cheese, some spinach, and a drizzle of Sherry Vinaigrette. Add another mushroom cap, more vinaigrette, spinach, and another slice of cheese. Place a third mushroom cap on top and finish by drizzling with additional vinaigrette and garnishing with chopped chives, if desired.

Sherry Vinaigrette:
1 small shallot, finely chopped
1/4 cup sherry vinegar or balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil

Whisk together the shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil until emulsified.
