Leftovers tend to go very fast in my house, unless, of course, those leftovers are vegetables.It seems like there's always a bowl of grilled (or roasted, in winter) vegetables hanging out in my fridge. I could come up with a million and one uses for them -- omelets, salads, wraps -- but my boys are a whole lot pickier. I have to "hide" the veggies in their favorite foods to get their approval and these fajitas are perfect for that!...more
Everyone loves a good old fashioned barbecue. The easy conviviality of a family backyard picnic. The smoky summer scent of charred goodies grilling. Lemonade chilling. Badminton birdies sailing. The crack of croquet balls. The last pink of daylight. Punching lids on firefly jars. But if you need to be gluten-free, or if you happen to be vegan, barbecues can be less than convivial. Those mysterious sauces (so often containing wheat-laced soy sauce). Those off-limit fluffy hot dog buns. All those meaty burgers and egg-dotted salads. What's a gluten-free vegan to do? Munch on lettuce?
We're still talking about grilling in honor of National Barbecue Month, and this week it's grilled vegetables, probably hands-down my favorite thing to cook on the grill. Grilling gives vegetables the same type of sweet, concentrated flavor that roasting them does, and if you have family members who are reluctant to eat vegetables, grilling the veggies might make them change their mind!
