Tabouleh mushroom topper

Are we the only ones who shop at Costco? I bet not. We love that they have some of our staples in this house– organic ground beef, organic chicken, gluten free pasta options, frozen organic produce, coconut oil, almond butter, nuts. I could go on.

We do not buy all of our groceries there. I mostly follow the EWG’s Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 list. If it’s pretty clean, I try to buy it at Costco. If not, I buy it elsewhere. To be honest, as far as clean, fresh produce goes, there aren’t that many options at this store, but Portabello mushrooms usually make it in the cart. I usually use them as I’d use regular button mushrooms, but being BBQ season, I wanted to give grilling them a fair shot. We’ll definitely be doing this again!
1-2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in rounds
1 bunch green onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped small
5 portabello mushrooms
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
A big handful of parsley, chopped
Nutritional yeast
How To:
Put all salad ingredients, salt, pepper, oil and vinegar to marinate in a bowl for as long as convenient
"Cheesy" mushroom burgers

“Cheesy” mushroom burgers

Clean underside of mushrooms with a napkin

Use a spoon to gently scoop the meat of the mushroom out and add to salad mixture
Top mushrooms with the salad mixture and sprinkle with nutritional yeast
Grill on low, indirect heat for about 20 minutes
We had ours with barbecued sweet potatoes (cumin, cinnamon and coconut oil, in tin foil for about 30-40 minutes) and bean salad. A big hit!
