You’ll need a grill basket to make this colourful appetizer. It’s a bit finicky to stuff peppers, but the results are beautifully delicious! A larger portion makes a great vegetarian main course.
Stuffed Sweet Mini Peppers
Grilled Potato Salad
A whisper of balsamic vinegar adds sweetness to this warm potato salad. Invest in a grill basket- it will let you grill smaller items such as mini potatoes and chunks of sweet peppers without losing things between the grill bars.
Grilled Sweet Onion Pizza
This has the onion, olive and tomato toppings of a Mediterranean pissaladiere, but on a pizza crust instead of a flaky pastry base. If you want to go one step more authentic, add some chopped drained anchovy fillets when topping the pizza. Keep an eye on the pizza crust to make sure it doesn’t brown too quickly.
Grilled Asian Chicken Breasts with Asparagus and Portobello Mushrooms
The soy, ginger and garlic sauce does triple duty- marinating the chicken breasts, acting as a basting sauce while the chicken is on the grill, and flavouring the vegetables. Grilling chicken breasts on the bone takes longer than boneless, but cooking on the bone adds more flavour and keeps the meat moister.
Citrusy Tuna and Chickpea Pasta
Fennel has a slight licorice flavour, and is a commonly partnered with fish or seafood. You can use orange or lemon rind as you prefer; any citrus makes a great foil for fish. This recipe is a great way to stretch a can of tuna to feed six, without anyone feeling deprived.
Easy Broccoli Vidalia Slaw
It doesn’t get easier than this! This is a great make-ahead salad for packed lunches.
Summer Salad Burgers
No one will guess the secret ingredient in these grilled burgers! Using the rest of the head of lettuce is an economical way to create a vegetable side dish.
Mini Raspberry Chocolate Bran Muffins
Throw a handful of frozen raspberries into our chocolate bran muffin mix to mix it up a little- no need to thaw them first.
Sweet Potato Aloo Gobi
Instead of the usual potato, we’ve used sweet potato for added colour, sweetness and nutrients. Aloo gobi is a side dish, but you can serve it over rice for a vegetarian main course.
Mini Dill Rosti
This sophisticated hors d’oeuvre will wow your guests! Making the rosti round takes a bit of practice.
