Vegetarian Grilling Series: Halloumi and Eggplant Kebobs

Barbecue season is officially upon us, and as a former vegetarian and current selective carnivore, I always despair a little about the dearth of good veg grilling options.  Vegetarian hot dogs are really bad as a rule (and the meat kind are scary), and while I love a good tofu dish I am not a […]
