Vegetarians Know How To Grill

Vegetarian Grilling

Vegetarian Grilling

Yesterday was Memorial Day and I hope you all had a chance to remember and honor those who have died in our nation’s service as well as a chance to spend some time with loved ones and enjoy good food. I had a chance to do some grilling last night. I made vegetarian kabobs with onions and red, green and yellow peppers and Tofurky® Italian Sausage (a great meat alternative that is really well seasoned and has a great texture….my roommate who’s not vegetarian ate them!). Also on the grill were some yellow squash and zucchini that I cut lengthwise and coated with olive oil and salt and pepper. Pretty basic, but still quite tasty.

The food took about 20 minutes to cook and turned out pretty good. I’d change a few things (I overcooked the kabobs a bit), but overall a success. I just had the leftovers for lunch…even better the second day! Oh…and another huge plus, because we weren’t grilling meat and there wasn’t grease everywhere, the grill was super easy to clean!

What foods have you been grilling lately?

Meatless Monday: Super Easy Dinner—Pesto Pasta & Veggies

Pesto Pasta and Veggies

Pesto Pasta and Veggies

This week I wanted to post something that is so easy to make and perfect for the busy holiday season. Pesto pasta and sautéed veggies makes for a delicious quick meal. Here’s what you need:

  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Store-bought pesto
  • Garlic
  • Red onion
  • Frozen bell peppers
  • Olive oil
  • Any other veggies you want (tomatoes, zucchini, etc.)
  • Salt & pepper

All you need to do for the pasta is cook it and then combine with the pesto. For the veggies, add the olive oil, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and any veggies you want (I used frozen bell peppers) and cook until soft and slightly browned. Then, just combine everything on a plate and enjoy!

It’s very easy and flavorful! Do you have any quick go-to meals when you’re having a busy week?
