  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Wash and de-stem mushrooms. Lightly score underside of each mushroom.

  2. Place all ingredients for marinade in a blender container, except for olive oil and puree until smooth and consistent throughout. While blender is running, slowly add all of the olive oil in a steady stream until emulsified in the marinade.

  3. Place mushrooms in a large glass baking dish, pour marinade over mushrooms and marinate for 2 hours in a refrigerator.

  4. In a large bowl, toss yellow tomatoes with 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread on a cookie sheet and roast in oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden-brown in color.

  5. In a small sauté pan combine garlic, onion and 1 teaspoon olive oil and sauté until onions are translucent.

  6. Place roasted tomatoes, sautéed onions and garlic, basil, cane sugar and lemon juice in a food processor and puree until smooth.

  7. Combine all ingredients for relish in a small saucepot over medium-high heat and simmer until liquid has evaporated.

  8. Remove mushrooms from marinade and discard excess marinade.
    Place on baking sheet and roast for 5 to 10 minutes, or until mushroom is soft. Serve 2 mushrooms with 2 tablespoons tomato puree and 1 tablespoon bell pepper relish.
