Meatless Monday: Veggie Burger & Quinoa Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms


Meatless Monday: Veggie Burger & Quinoa Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I made this delicious dish for dinner last Monday night but just haven’t had the opportunity to share it yet. I have made variations of this before but never with a veggie burger.  The idea of adding the burger was inspired by winning a contest hosted by Maine Mom on the Run where I was awarded with a hefty stash of coupons to purchase Sunshine Burgers!

Meatless Monday: Veggie Burger & Quinoa Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

It has been a long time since I tried a veggie burger that I liked and wasn’t loaded with sodium or contained soy.  Over the years, I have tried a variety of different veggie burgers but most of them left me with a stomach ache (from the soy) or feeling super thirsty- from the levels of sodium.  When I first learned of Sunshine Burgers and saw that they were gluten, soy, dairy, egg free and Non-GMO it piqued my interest and wanted to try them out, so when I saw that Maine Mom on the Run was having a giveaway I entered and won! Woohoo!

Using the coupons, I purchased the Southwest and Garden Herb flavors and the first few times I ate them was either plain or with a salad.  While I enjoyed both, the texture and flavors inspired me to create something a bit more imaginative hence the veggie burger stuffed portobello mushroom was born!

Even though I’m not a vegetarian or vegan, this meal will certainly be a new go to in my house for dinner. It was super simple to prepare and the addition of the veggie burger to the stuffing gave it a hearty hunk of added flavor that left me satisfied!
