Need good vegetarian/meat meals.

Something that's easy that can satisfy both types of palettes. My best friend is a vegetarian and she's pregnant and her husband eats meat like we do. Any suggestions? They are staying for the weekend so I'll need a couple meals.

  • I would do portobello burgers and regular burgers with grilled veggies if it's grilling weather where you are. You can make the burger patties by combining ground beef or bison with McCormicks hamburger seasoning and grilling. Meanwhile, cut the caps off the portobellos and rinse them. You can remove the black gills of the mushroom if you want. mix a little bit of olive oil with some hamburger seasoning and salt and pepper. Start grilling the burgers, and when they are halfway done, put the portobello mushrooms on the grill. Cook til it gets good char marks on one side then flip. When you flip them, add a slice of mozzarella or provolone cheese on top of the burgers and mushrooms. Also grill up some asparagus and corn on the cob, perfect sides. FOr the asparagus, get the really thin ones, and snap them off at the bottom. Just bend, and it will naturally break where it needs to. Rinse the asparagus and dry with a paper towel...

  • then toss with some olive oil, lemon juice and salt and grill for a few minutes til tender. For corn on the cob, boil it for about 8 minutes and then take it out, rub with butter, and put on the grill to get some grill marks. To assemble the burgers, take your buns and add either the patties or the mushrooms with mayo/mustard and all the normal burger toppings. The portobellos really have the texture of meat and I like it better than regular burgers.
