Grilled Cheesy Shitake

This one is for Meeta & Ruth :) for the monthly mingle.
Ive been wanting to always participate in one of "What's for lunch Honey?"'s Monthly Mingles and well at last ....
So it is Sensational Sides this time.... i love side dishes... continental, Indian,.... all of them are just so well relished!
I made Grilled Shitake :)
I love the rustic flavour of shitake, Wild mushrooms are in abundance in japan, Diff
kinds have very typically different flavours. I used shitake cause it has a nice chewy flavour. Also for vegetarians it gives u a nice meaty taste.
I love it when the meaty taste mingles with cheese and mint!

6 sitake mushrooms
Half a onion
1 small clove of garlic
2 tbs of chopped mint
Black pepper
1/4th cup of cheese of your choice.
Olive oil

First De-stem the shitake and chop the stems very finely.In a pan heat olive oil and add finely chopped onions and garlic, saute well and then
add the chopped stems, saute until tender and add rest of the ingredients. Turn of the heat and let it settle for about 5 min.
In the mean while rub some olive oil on the shitake caps, and then stuff them with
the above mix. Grill on low heat for about 10 min or cheese melts :)

Trust me its a tastes like n looks like a luxurious side dish!
