Grilled Caprese Tomatoes

Vegetarian Grilling Series: Grilled Caprese Tomatoes

If you are grilling for Independence Day weekend, this is a really simple and delicious vegetarian dish that also would work well as an appetizer for omnivorous crowds.  They are pretty, fresh tasting, and a bit messy, all of which adds up to a great holiday barbecue meal.  I recommend grilling up some garlic-rubbed bread […]

Vegetarian Grilling Series: Eggs in Portobello Nests with Red Pepper Aioli

Asparagus with White Balsamic Strawberries and Toasted Hazelnuts

As previously mentioned, I love asparagus.  When it is in season I partake of it several times a week.  My favorite way to cook asparagus is to trim the stalks, toss with a little olive oil, and cook them on the outdoor grill until slightly charred.  That was my plan for this batch, but an […]
