Meatless Monday...how'd that happen?

Its been a weekend full of hanging out and eating out with family and friends! Today, despite the holiday, we still had a bit of work. No worries, its all good.  I had time to go to Whole Foods to get groceries. Good idea? I think my blonde roots kicked in telling me it wouldn't be too busy.

Um, NO!! It was crazy! But I still managed to make my way through the chaos to shop till I dropped. I love shopping for wholesome nutritious foods. Its an adventure each time, okay I am exaggerating a little but still, its FUN!
Well, dinner time rolled around way too fast and all we wanted to do was stay in and chill since its another 4:30am wake up call tomorrow. So whats for dinner? Open faced Mushroom Burger.....simple and fast!


Here's my wing of a recipe.

  • Grab a portabella mushroom.
  • clean out roots ( I use a spoon)oil in the inside (I used grapeseed oil)
  • season (garlic, curry, black pepper)
  • Bake upside down at 400F for about 20 minutes
  • Then add a cooked sunshine burger or homemade jiffy burger on top
  • layer almond cheese, veggie cheese, or regular mozzarella cheese on top of veggie burger
  • Place back in oven and broil for 2 minutes or so.
  • take out of oven and garnish with broccoli slaw and chalula sauce.
YUM!!
Serve with sweet potato and brussel sprouts and you got yourself a MEATY MEATLESS DISH.  I actually didn't mean to go meatless today but its probably good we did because we doubled our vegetable intake that might have been a little neglected this weekend, haha!

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day! Misson Monday is back next week with an awesome vegetable salad. Sorry for the delay, but its a work in progress so stay tuned!

And congrats to all those who raced CapTex Tri today! Way to survive the heat.

Cheers,
LC

I've never tried almond cheese, but I bet I'd love it like my almond milk. I'm on a mission now. Have a great day!

Oh, gosh, gimme that burger, now. With a top please. Oh wait! no top! I want a runny egg over it! :D

I'm a meat-eater, but I do love my veggies! And I'd rather have that meatless mushroom, than a fake soy isolate burger.

Lindsay Cotter said...

Sophia,

Not much of a soy person either. In fact, I just tried this with egg on top last night. And it was delicous! Egg goes with everything!

Robyn said...

Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just
curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin
or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads

The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
