Reinventing a Classic

The classic Caprese salad features layers of mozzarella cheese, basil, and tomatoes drizzled with olive oil or a balsamic glaze. However, these Caprese Quinoa Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms with Balsamic Glaze are a riff on the antipasto staple and create a crowd-pleasing appetizer worthy of a special occasion. Quinoa, mozzarella, tomatoes, and chopped basil infuse grilled mushrooms with Italian flavor. All of this deliciousness is topped off with a glaze made from balsamic vinegar and brown sugar for an extra kick. Serve these bite-size beauties to guests at a party or save them as a side dish for a weekend family meal.
