Summer Meal straight from the grill!
Now that I have my outdoor living space completed, it is time to fire up the grill. Now, you may be asking - what can she cook on the grill? She doesn't eat meat! Well, with a little thought, I will be utilizing my grill all summer for numerous meals. The first one? Grilled portobello mushroom burgers, grilled asparagus and for dessert, a fruit salad! All of my items were purchased at Walmart and I have to tell you my family truly enjoyed the meal!
First I started by firing up the grill, I used self-light charcoal which was a breeze and while waiting for the grill to heat up I prepared the mushrooms. After cleaning both the asparagus and mushrooms, I placed them on a tray and gently drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.
I scored the mushrooms and added chopped garlic and rosemary to the mushrooms. After this simple preparation, I went back out and placed everything on the grill. Meanwhile, my mom prepared the fruit salad.
This ended up being the main course for my son because he is such a picky eater - I'm just glad that we were able to get him to eat!
While the veggies cooked I cut up vine ripened tomatoes and placed them on Arnold sandwich rounds (100 calories) with low-fat mayonnaise. Once the veggies were done, I placed the mushroom burgers on my bun and ate the asparagus fresh off the grill with no additional seasoning.
My mother loved it and clean-up was simple! I can't wait to utilize my grill for cooking throughout the summer!
