It’s always a good time for Avocado, why not throw some summer tomatoes in the mix? This vegetarian yet filling snack is sure to please every pallette.
Savory and satisfying, this recipe is among some of the simplest you will find, which makes for easy every-day dinners in the future as well!
This recipe may be a little more challenging than the first two, but believe us, it is worth it. You will end up with delicious tender short ribs, with little crispy bits thanks to the slightly fatty nature of this meat. The dipping sauce is to die for and can even be made up to a week beforehand.
Another very feasible recipe that especially the vegetarians will enjoy, these cauliflower steaks will hit the spot for everyone. These “steaks” are citrusy and smoky, perfect with some char from the grill.
This dish is just awesome and super well balanced. It is both sweet and savory, the mustard adds a bit of a kick with some tartness. The sauce for this dish goes well with everything, just be careful not to cross-contaminate. If you don’t want to feel overwhelmed, add a do-it-yourself kabob station eliminating the need to plan side dishes. Simply throw everyone’s personalized kabobs on the grill while the salmon is cooking.
Now for the easiest and best part! Tying into the “grilled” theme of the evening, just grill each half of the donut, glaze side down, for 1 minute. Add a scoop of the ice cream of your choosing, and the rest of the night is smooth sailing. Congratulations, you have successfully become a grill master, and impressed all your friends!
