I love when people ask, “Hey what do vegetarians cook on the grill anyway? Veggie burgers, corn, fake hot dogs??” Well, since all we hear about for the entire week leading up the Fourth of July are the recipes, stories and suggestions for grilling hundreds of pounds of burgers, steaks, chicken and ribs (did I say boring?) I guess it’s a pretty fair question! Let me tell you… there’s no limit to the delicious meatless main meals, side dishes, pizzas, salads and desserts you can make outdoors on the grill. Actually, what’s pretty amazing is that there’s virtually nothing you CAN’T prepare outdoors! And these days when you look at grill accessories there are all kind’s of special pans, grill tops and gadgets that are not only very inexpensive but make grilling a pleasure. Some of the most fun we’ve had filming have been our summer grill recipes. Following are my top picks for this holiday weekend or, really, all season long.


My Portobello- Arugula Salad Burger [3] is always a hit. It’s hearty, colorful, packed with better-than-beef flavor and EASY. I top this recipe with the arugula salad, but you can use your favorite slaw or better yet try the cabbage slaw from my next Fabulous Fourth pick, Cathi DiCocoa’s Rasta Pups [4]. These little gems are perfect for kids if you can snag them away from the adults first. For kids just you might just spare the jalapeno in the slaw, which is cool, cause that leaves more for you! Grilled Seitan 3 Ways [5] is also a terrific choice. Made on skewers you can use any spice rub, jerk or barbeque sauce on these tasty meaty bites. If you’re looking for the best fluffy crispy giant french fries ever, grill em!


The Perfect Grilled Potatoes [7] have an absolutely perfect (no more burned outside raw inside potatoes) texture and take all the mystery out of preparing potatoes on the grill.


For a side salad or for those folks eating REALLY light, try my Grilled Panzanella Salad [9] with it’s nice little Mediterranean spin this recipe is a great way to feature garlic, fresh plump tomatoes and basil! Finally…you’ve got to grill fruit! Peaches on the Grill [10] are absolutely succulent, especially topped with a little light non dairy ice cream or whipped topping. No peaches? No problem! You can substitute, pineapple, apples, pears, bananas or whatever fruit YOU like. This week why not try something new and give these recipes a spin! You, your family and friends will love them. So from our Totally Vegetarian table to yours, all of us at Delicious TV wish you a happy, healthy, compassionate and fantastic Fourth of July! Enjoy!
