Yearning to enjoy some summer grilling, but looking to keep an eye on your total carbohydrate consumption? I hear you – and I’m here to help!
The reality is we quite often get more than enough carbs from tasty beverages and delicious sides (think ciders, sangria, chips & crackers – hopefully whole grain, and fresh fruit). These delicious yet high carbohydrate foods & drinks are in abundance at cook-out type events and are quite often enjoyed socially (and this social connection is absolutely part of health & happy life).
With that said, when it comes to the entrée, many of us are looking to keep protein & fibre top of mind. Ensuring ample protein and fibre make an appearance at grill-centric gathering will help you keep your overall calorie consumption in check while meeting our nutritional needs and satisfying our appetite.
And to sandwich your high protein filling with a fantastically delicious low-carb option, I encourage you to give Portobello mushroom burger buns a go. This particular “bun” recipe was designed to serve two, with date night healthy grilling in mind – but the quantity you plan to make can be easily adjusted using the serving size text box below.
But do take caution: this is not a first date burger! I recommend enjoying this burger with a close friends or significant other you are quite comfortable with – that’s able to laugh at getting a little messy at the dinner table.
Highlights of making this recipe:
- Featuring many easy to locate ingredients, all you have to focus on is the quick assembly to make your grilling experience golden.
- With only 3 ingredients and half a dozen food prep steps, making these Portobello burger bun is almost as easy as putting a burger on the grill – and significantly more delicious to enjoy, at least in our opinion.
- Naturally wheat and gluten free, these Portobello buns are a refreshing (and significantly more nutritious) change from some of the gluten free bread products we’ve tried.
Happy grilling friends!
