July is here, and we're well into the summer grilling season! For most of us, grilling season is filled with yummy hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, sausages, and any other kind of meat you can think of. But it's important if you're hosting a grilling get-together that you keep your guests' dietary needs in mind, too. Veggie cuisine doesn't have to be boring or difficult to accommodate. Today, I'm sharing my recipe for a no bun, roasted garlic and quinoa burger--a solution for guests who prefer veggie burgers and don't eat bread.


One of my closest friends, who prefers veggie cuisine, says it's hard for her to enjoy the summer BBQ season mostly because hosts often neglect her dietary concerns. When she told me this, it made me really sad and I promised her I'd come up with a fun, delicious meatless grilling recipe for her and her friends to try out at upcoming BBQ and grilling parties.


Meatless grilling can still be delicious!



Don't leave your veggie loving friends to fend for themselves at a BBQ! Serve up this no bun, roasted garlic and quinoa burger as an alternative to regular hamburgers (or other grilled entrées). 


No Bun, Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burger

Ingredients:
  • Morningstar Farms® Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burgers
  • 2 pieces of romaine lettuce
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced horizontally
  • 1/2 cup of pico de gallo
  • 1/4 cup of artichoke jalalpeño dip 
  • 1/4 cup of mushrooms
Directions:
  1. Wash and prep your romaine lettuce, red bell pepper, and mushrooms. 
  2. Chop up your red bell pepper horizontally, so that it creates circular slices of pepper rather than strips (so it works well for stacking on burgers!)
  3. Place mushrooms in aluminum foil and heat on the grill.
  4. Grill your Morningstar Farms® Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burgers to your desired wellness.
  5. Begin stacking burger starting with one slice of lettuce, followed by one burger, a layer of artichoke jalalpeño dip, a red bell pepper slice, another burger, and top with grilled mushrooms and pico de gallo. 
  6. Top off burger with the second piece of lettuce, creating a no bun burger you can hold and eat!

Save 20% on MorningStar Farms products at Target through the Cartwheel offer, available 6/8-7/4.

  1. That actually looks really tasty! Crunchy lettuce is a perfect substitute for a bunk and it's so much healthier for you. Will have to see if our local store carries these burgers.

  2. I love veggie burgers! I am not a vegetarian, although we do have one in the family :) I often order veggie burgers when we are dining out. I rarely make them at home. I think I am going to try this Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burger! Thanks for the deal, too! I am a Target shopper!

  3. I definitely prefer potluck style BBQ's in the summer so I can guarantee at least one thing on the menu fits what I eat! Or I like to host BBQ's so I can make sure there are lots of yummy foods that fit my diet needs!

    1. Aww thanks Donna! I just try to treat my friends the way I'd want to be treated :) And I am a sucker for lettuce wrapped burgers as well. It's always been my go-to when either a) I want to eat healthier or b) we're out of hamburger buns!

  15. I love MorningStar Farms veggie burgers! Unfortunately, I've never tried the quinoa. My sister had a severe allergic reaction to quinoa recently, and I don't want to take any chances! We do eat meatless on Mondays and veggie burgers are often on the menu!
