Remember that easy and delicious barbecue sauce that we made together last week? Yes? Well, let’s do something with it other than just licking it straight off the spoon. Not that I know anybody who would do anything like that…
Please avert your eyes while I wipe barbecue sauce off my face.
So grilling. If you’re a carnivore, just the thought of grilling is probably enough to make you salivate. But if you’re a vegetarian, then you might be less than thrilled by the whole concept. Because often vegetarians get the short end of the stick during grilling season. Summer can be a endless loop of frozen veggie patties and tofu dogs. No bueno.
In an attempt to correct this problem, I set out to create a juicy, flavorful “burger” that the vegetarians could really sink their teeth into. And I think I finally hit the nail on the head with these Barbecue Portobello Mushroom Burgers with Grilled Onions and Pineapple.
As a self proclaimed carnivore, I have to admit that I COULD NOT STOP eating these portobello mushroom burgers. They are so ridiculously good! They have a lot of the same elements that you might find on a traditional burger, so that kind of tricks your brain into thinking you’re eating beef. Not that I think we need to be tricking ourselves (or others) into consuming vegetables. I just don’t know how else to explain it. Hopefully, you guys know what I’m getting at.
I’m confident in saying that even the meat-eaters will be able to get excited about these babies. And the vegetarians in your life with thank you for not forcing them to eat pre-formed, freezer-burned knock-offs. Happy grilling times for everyone!
