Veggie, Veggie and a Mahi?

Now, I love a good burger as much as the next person, but a regular beef burger with all the toppings has the capacity to weigh down my stomach and leave me questioning my food decision making.

There are several alternatives when it comes to enjoying a nice vegetarian or pescatarian option.

Portobello mushrooms make fabulous burgers and are easy to cook up in a pan or on the grill. Just brush with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper and in a few minutes you’ll have a delicious meal. I topped this one with some Irish pup cheese and added sides of roasted peppers, sauteed kale with coconut oil and a few truffle roasted potatoes.


If you’re not a mushroom fan (which I find very strange) you can opt for a Mahi burger.  They make some pretty decent ones at BJ’s and other grocery stores are likely to have Mahi, Salmon or Tuna alternatives.  I simply pan cooked this one for 5-7 minutes each side on medium high and then topped with a Dr. Praeger’s spinach pancake, pesto, sauteed peppers and onions, and a few slices of avocado. I chose to add sides of rice pilaf and green beans with this meal but you can choose whatever you are in the mood for.

There are so many burger alternatives out there.  What’s your favorite variation?

As always eat healthy stay fit,
