6 ounces (about four 4-inch-diameter) portobello mushrooms, stemmed
1 ounce snow peas
1 shallot
2 baby carrots, cut
salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup blue cheese dressing




Preheat the broiler. Line a broiler tray with aluminum foil.

Trim and clean the mushrooms. Place in a single layer on a microwave-safe plate, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and microwave at full power until they're soft and just beginning to steam, about 1 minute. Place them stem side up on the prepared broiler tray.

Trim and halve the snow peas (about 1/4 cup). Peel and halve the shallot. Combine the snow peas, shallot, and carrots in a food processor. Pulse about 15 times to finely chop. Transfer to a microwave-save bowl, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and microwave at full power until steaming, about 1 minute.

Mound 1 tablespoon of the chopped vegetables in the center of each mushroom. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese dressing over each.

Broil for about 1 minute, until bubbly and lightly browned.
