During the warm months of summer, one of my favorite ways to cook is using the grill. It’s fast, while keeping the house cool and cuts down on the number of pots and pans used, which saves time during clean-up. Plus it’s time spent outside- always a bonus. Here are a few of my favorite recipes to cook on the grill which I hope will inspire you to try something new this summer. Many are vegan adaptable and gluten-free. Pick a couple and give them a whirl! Click on the photos, or links below. Happy Grilling!
