One of the earmarks of a great get-together is an awesome menu. But, have you ever planned a gathering and realized a guest with a special diet can find very little to eat? Ugh. As hostess, I always want to make each guest feel welcomed. A menu for company needs to take guests dietary needs and preferences into consideration. For example, we especially love to grill out during the summer, but not all of our friends eat meat. Ive found that delicious veggie cuisine is the perfect answer. Meat lovers and vegetarians can both be satisfied.
MorningStar Farms has a great veggie cuisine product list. One of my current favorites is the black bean burger. Its flavorful and versatile. Of course you can grill it and pop it in a bun and enjoy a typical burger taste, but we really like to grill it, crumble it and use it in tacoseasy and delicious. This is what I do: head over to Target to pick up MorningStar burgers and whatever toppings I want for the day. I never go straight to the grocery section. I take the circuitous route that takes me through the womens section, by the kids clothes and then housewares. I usually loiter in housewares before I get on to groceries but sometimes I take other detours!
On each guests plate, crumble a taco shell. Layer half an avocado, crumble one burger, and add desired amount of onions, corn, beans, salsa and cilantro. The kids typically enjoy eating their tacos intact, usually without the avocado. Delicious, healthy and quickthe perfect combo for kicking back with friends on a summer evening.
