There is something about a thick, juicy, protein-packed piece of meat that is hearty and satisfies our cravings until the next meal. Burgers, steaks, and other meaty dishes are everyday dinner meals that are quick to prepare and family favorites. But vegetables can be just as satisfying and delicious. With some creativity and ingenuity, vegetables can be part of a meaty meal, too.
With grilling season upon us, fire up the grill for some meaty vegetable steaks. Try slicing cauliflower and cabbage into thick steaks that turn golden brown and crispy on the grill. Mushrooms are popular meaty vegetables, but use the large, round Portobello’s instead of hamburger patties. There are a variety of delicious and meaty vegetables that can be turned into a healthy and hearty dinner in a snap.
