Veggie burgers are not just for summer. This recipe is perfect for this time of year because they are best cooked on a stove top. They are also healthier than most vegan burgers I have tried because of the beans and quinoa.
I recommend serving alongside fresh veggies. Also, use any leftovers the next day on top of a salad for a crunchy-satisfying meal.
I also like to serve mine with a slice of Chao Cheese, tomato and a simple sauce made with 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart Pesto Vegenaise and 1/4 cup Sriracha.
I never really enjoyed the taste of meat but there is something “meaty”, for lack of a better word, about Portobello Mushrooms. They are deliciously satisfying and make a great dinner or super-hardy lunch.
Since I live in Southern California I can grill them almost every day of the year or, in this particular recipe, I used the oven because I wanted to keep them as moist as possible.
This recipe is ready in a flash! If it is still steamy-hot where you live and you don’t want to fire up the oven you can cook this calzone on the grill. Simply spray a piece of aluminum foil, making sure seam-side is up. Or it also cooks great on a made-for-grilling pizza stone.
