Who doesn't love eating appetizers ? I sure do!
Get togethers are my favorite since it gives me a chance to try out new appetizer recipes. It's not like I can’t make appetizers on a regular day because I can. It’s just that at a get together, I can get my friends and family to help me eat the appetizers so I don’t overeat or have any leftovers that can tempt me to eat more later on.
Whether it’s getting together to watch a sporting event on TV or to celebrate a birthday, you want to have some appetizers on hand as part of the festivities for your guests to enjoy. Appetizers such as nachos, wings, dip, taquitos and mini hot dogs are all very tasty but aren’t the healthiest or most nutritious foods as to what you should put in your body. Yes a platter with some carrots, broccoli, celery and dip is the ideal route you should take but some may not think that’s the most exciting or appropriate party food to eat at a get together.
Why not have appetizers that are appropriate for a party as well as vegan and healthy?
These mushroom sliders are exactly all of those qualities in one appetizer. Instead of a meat patty for the burger, the white mushroom caps take its place. These mushrooms are the perfect size for sliders, have a meaty texture and are a lot less fattening than a meat slider topped with some cheese. I'll eat more of these sliders since they aren’t greasy like the meat ones and I won't miss the extra calories. The marinade gives these mushrooms a great flavor and the longer you keep them marinating the better the mushrooms caps taste.
You can dress up these mushroom sliders with all the fixings and they will definitely fill you up. Meat eaters and non-meat eaters can enjoy these sliders at your next get together or just for a snack. Don't worry about eating too many of these, you're still eating your veggies and that's what counts!
