Marinated Mushroom Bruschetta

READY IN: 52mins
YIELD: 20 slices




  • Place the mushrooms in a large, plastic resealable bag.
  • In a bowl, mix the wine, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper; pour over the mushrooms, press the air out of the bag and seal tightly; turn the bag to distribute the ingredients; let marinate at room temperature for 1-2 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
  • Grill the bell peppers over direct medium heat until they are black and blistered all over, 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally; place the peppers in a medium bowl and cover with plastic to trap the steam; set aside for at least 10 minutes, then peel the skins from the peppers and discard the stems and seeds.
  • Drain excess marinade from the mushrooms and grill them over direct medium heat until tender, 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally; lightly brush or spray the slices of bread on both sides with olive oil; grill until lightly toasted, 1-2 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time.
  • Put the pine nuts in a medium pan over medium heat and cook until lightly toasted, 5-10 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
  • Very finely chop the bell peppers, mushrooms, and pine nuts and combine all of them in a medium bowl; add the basil and stir, taste and add salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Spread a very thin layer of goat cheese on one side of each slice of toasted bread; arrange about 1 tablespoon of mushroom mixture on top of each; serve at room temperature.
