Hi Friends! Sorry about my rather inconsistent posting schedule lately. It’s been a busy couple of weeks with freelance projects, travel and Holiday shenanigans. Also, I’m trying to be a little bit more relaxed about work commitments and not push myself to the next level of crazy. Because if I get any crazier, well, I don’t really want to think about what would happen then. Let’s just say it probably wouldn’t go over too well with my family and friends.
So…let’s discuss hot dogs. Are you a fan? I am not. To be honest, they kind of freak me out. And as I was writing this post, I started looking up hot dog ingredients and then I got even more freaked out. Yikes.
So no hot dogs for me this Summer. Instead, I’ll be consuming these Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Broccolini Veggie Dogs on the regular.
This is one of those recipes that evolved on the fly while I was making it. I had grilled up some Portobello mushrooms to make vegetarian “hamburgers”. But then I spotted a package of hot dog buns and it occurred to me that I could just slice up the mushroom caps into strips to make plant-based “hot dogs” instead. Broccolini, with it long, slender shape, seemed like a good fit. And of course, avocado is always a good idea.
I made an herb yogurt sauce with all the herbs that I had in my refrigerator at that particular moment. But you could certainly use whatever condiments you like. I imagine a traditional spicy mustard would work nicely here.
These Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Broccolini Veggie Dogs come together very quickly. Which makes them the perfect recipe to share as part of our monthly 30 Minute Thursday series. Check out the links below for more dishes that you can make in 30 minutes or less. And don’t let yourself get too crazy this Summer!
