Choose large, uniformly sized mushrooms to ensure you can pack an equal amount of the cheesy filling into each. Secure with sandwich picks, if you like, and serve with a green salad.

  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced crosswise (or 2 vine-ripened 
tomatoes, diced)
  • 16 large cremini 
mushrooms, stemmed
  • 2 8-inch whole-grain 
pitas, split
  • 1 cup baby arugula, coarsely chopped, plus additional for garnish
  • 6 oz fresh burrata cheese, room temperature, patted dry and torn into 16 pieces

Pantry staples

  • 1 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 tsp red wine 
vinegar, divided
  • 2 tsp dried basil, divided
  • 1/2 tsp each sea salt and ground cumin, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, combine tomatoes, 1 tsp each oil, vinegar and basil and 1/4 tsp each salt and cumin. Spread in a single layer in center of baking sheet, leaving room along outer edges. In same bowl, combine mushrooms, remaining 2 tsp oil, 1 tsp each vinegar and basil and 1/4 tsp each salt and cumin.
