Today I came across the “LAST CHANCE!” link to the Shine Supper Club on Yahoo.
Being the Texas gal and gourmet tailgater that I am, I just had to enter!
I like to keep it simple and delicious so as to spend my time enjoying the festivities rather than fussing over the food.
Here are a couple of my favorite grillin’ recipes…
1 package whole grain buns (I prefer Ezekiel)
4 large portabella mushroom caps
Organic beefsteak tomatoes
Organic romaine lettuce
Any other toppings you would normally put on your burger
Place the mushrooms ribs-down on the grill and leave for about 20-30 minutes, depending on the flame. Flip and repeat. Top with cheese (I find that it holds better on the ribbed side) and pile on the veggies!
Warm Grilled Pears With Bleu Cheese
3-4 organic pears
Bleu cheeseBalsamic vinaigrette
Slice and core the pears. Place them flesh-down on a low flame and tent them with a piece of folded foil. Leave for about 10 minutes or until tender. Flip the pears and fill the core hollows with the bleu cheese. Replace the foil tent and allow cheese to melt. Remove from grill and drizzle with vinaigrette and honey. Viola! A simple, unique dessert.
Variation: ditch the cheese and balsamic. Replace with fresh raspberries and greek yogurt, which you top the pears with once removed from the grill.
These recipes are entirely customizable. Tweak them to fit your taste and have fun!
