You’ve planned everything perfectly for your Memorial Day barbecue, but an entree for the vegetarians has you stumped? No worries: Portobello caps make a wallet-friendly and easy pick when you want to sidestep the burger meat. The mushrooms are meaty (but meatless) and satisfying, making them a go-to swap for even the biggest meat eaters. And since the portobellos are mild in taste, they’re incredibly versatile, so you can serve them with the same sides and buns as the rest of the burgers on the grill.

With a hefty texture and a flavorful sherry and garlic marinade, these Roasted Portobello Mushroom Burgers with Blue Cheese serve as a great substitute for beef. Toppings like blue cheese and sauteed spinach deliver bolder results than the usual cheddar-and-lettuce combo.

Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.
