Heyyyyy, vegetarians -- we've got a new sandwich recipe that'll make you the envy of omnivores everywhere...

Prep: 10 minutes
Marinate: 1 hour
Cook: 15 minutes

1/4 cup light balsamic vinaigrette dressing
2 tbsp. chipotle hot sauce (like the kind by Tabasco)
4 large portabella mushroom caps
1 red bell pepper, cut into quarters, stem and seeds removed
Four 1/2-inch-thick onion slices, rings intact
2 tbsp. light mayonnaise
1 tsp. chopped cilantro
Four 100-calorie flat sandwich buns (like Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat Sandwich Thins)

In a small bowl, mix vinaigrette with chipotle hot sauce. Transfer to a large sealable plastic bag. Add mushroom caps, seal bag, and gently work the vinaigrette mixture into the mushrooms through the bag. Lay flat in the fridge to marinate for 1 hour.

Bring a grill sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Lay marinated mushroom caps, bell pepper quarters, and onion slices on the grill. Discard excess marinade. Cook for 6 minutes with the grill cover down.

Flip veggies. With the grill cover down, grill until fully cooked and blackened, about 6 more minutes.

In a small bowl, stir cilantro into mayo. Spread mixture onto the bottom halves of the buns. Top each bun bottom with an onion slice, a mushroom cap, and a pepper quarter. Add the bun tops, and serve 'em up!

Honey, garlic, ginger... sriracha?! These aren't your grandma's kebabs...

Prep: 10 minutes
Marinate: 1 hour
Cook: 10 minutes

1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 tbsp. sriracha 
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1 tsp. chopped ginger
1 tsp. honey
10 oz. (about 22) raw large shrimp, peeled, tails removed, deveined
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks (or packed in juice, and then drained)

In a wide bowl, combine all ingredients except shrimp and pineapple. Mix until uniform.

Add shrimp, and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate to marinate for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, if using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.

Alternately thread shrimp and pineapple onto four skewers. Discard excess marinade.

Bring a grill sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Grill kebabs for 3 minutes with the grill cover down.

Flip kebabs. With the grill cover down, grill for 3 minutes, or until shrimp are cooked through and pineapple has lightly browned.
