Before I send you off on a fabulous Memorial Day weekend full of grilling, drinking, and relaxing, I wanted to pop in and give y’all a quick vegetarian-friendly grilling recipe. My turkey burgers were decidedly not, um, vegetarian. Did you guess as much?
I’m a most sympathetic meat-eater, because I was a vegetarian through most of college and grad school. I started eating meat again because intense sugar cravings were signaling that my body wasn’t getting enough protein. However, in that sugar rush state in my life, this website that you’re resting your eyeballs on was born! So, essentially, Dessert for Two wouldn’t be here without my stint with vegetarianism. Glory be!
So, much love to you vegetarians. I still eat like you about 80% of the time. Unless someone stuffs pimento cheese on a burger, then I’m out. Like a moth to a flame. Many apologies. But but BUT these smoky portobello tacos will satisfy your cravings for something hot off the grill.
I marinated these big fat steak-y mushrooms in soy sauce for that umami flavor associated with meat. After a brief stint on the grill (they will slump when they’re ready), I doused them in KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce. I used their 35th anniversary barbecue sauce. Holy yum. Excuse me while I put a straw in the bottle and drink that stuff.
I hope y’all have a fabulously relaxing weekend. Get outside and cook something for friends–and invite your vegetarian friends, too!
