Veggie burgers are great on the grill, but if they’re unwrapped from a package, you’re still eating processed food. Try grilling up thick, meaty portobello mushrooms instead. This “real food” recipe requires only a light brushing with olive oil, garlic and fresh basil and about 10 minutes on the grill. Serve them burger-style on buns or enjoy as a side dish with any meal.
Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
2. Combine garlic, basil, oil, sea salt and pepper in a large bowl; mix well to combine. Brush onto mushrooms and grill for 10 minutes or until tender.
