8 Yummy Vegetarian Grilling Recipes

  • 8 of 2

Grilled Cheese with Spring Onions & Escarole

This is a sophisticated take on a classic sandwich. Escarole is a good bitter green filled with vitamin A, C, and calcium. It complements the cheese, garlic, and onions beautifully.

Grilled Pizza

Pizzas take on a whole new dimension when we throw them on the grill: the crust gets lightly charred on the bottom and the flavors meld into a smoky and intense deliciousness. Click below for four tasty pizza options: a romantic Parisian version with fresh herbs and Gruyere cheese, the Tuscan Sun with eggplant, sundried tomatoes, and oil-cured olives, a lime-zesty Mexican Fiesta bursting with peppers, beans, salsa, corn, and cheese, and the mouth-watering Florentine with spinach, fresh mozzarella, and a creamy sauce. Or invent your own combination of signature toppings!

Grilled Peaches with Bitter Greens & Blue Cheese

A bed of arugula and frisée with toasted pecans and blue cheese are the perfect complement to succulent grilled peaches. For a more dessert-y dish featuring stone fruit, check out Grilled Apriums with Mascarpone & Mint! (Apriums are a cross between apricots and plums, but apricots or peaches would work well also.)

Grilled Cake

Cake? Cake! Angel food cake, pound cake, and any other firm cake loves a little trip to the grill for some toasting and caramelized edges. Loaf cakes, like banana bread or cornbread work well too. Brush with butter and toast over medium heat until golden with grill marks–serve with grilled fruit. Add Greek yogurt, ice cream, or creme fraiche too.
