Grilled Portobello Mushrooms…Super Easy and Light!

Grilling Vegetables can be a wonderful way to stay fit and healthy this summer. And the Portobello Mushroom is one of the best things to grill along with your vegetables. Portobello Mushrooms are often called the Steak of the Vegetables and can be a great meat substitute, full of flavor, packed with nutrients, low in calories and, well… just plain delicious! I like to rinse the mushroom and brush them with olive oil just before placing them on the grill.
Salt and Pepper sprinkled to taste
Garlic powder
and another drizzle of olive oil
Place mushrooms directly onto grill paying attention not to burn
Turn once, your muchroom should be semi soft
Remove mushroom from grill and brush them once again with olive oil and sprinkle with fetta cheese and more garlic
Return them to the grill and let cook aprox 4 more minutes
Grilled Mushrooms are excellent on a whole wheat bun with your favorite low calorie salad dressing
garnish with letuce, tomato, onion…go ahead be creative!
They can be brushed with your favorite BBQ sauce as well during the grilling process


Healthy BBQ **** Happy 4th of July****

Turkey Burgers With Roasted Veggies

1 lb. Ground Turkey (Makes 4 Burgers)
1 egg
1/4 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
3 cloves garlic, mashed
1 small onion finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash of Black Pepper
1/4 cup warm water
mix Turkey with all ingredients
shape into burgers and set aside****
Brush with BBQ Sauce
Wrap Corn on the Cob in foil (if you like)
Place Corn on the Cob on Grill cook for aprox 10 min

Place Burgers on Grill
Cook to 160 degrees, or until desired doneness,now add vegetables to grill and cook until tender.
The Vegitables will be the last thing you place on the grill since they take just a few minutes to cook. Turkey meat should be cooked well and must maintain 160 degrees in order to be safe to eat.

Grilling can be a very healthy way to cook, be creative! Firm vegitables will hold up to the heat and take no time at all to cook…what a great way to eat right and stay fit!!
