Now that summer is here, it won't be long before the air is full of the mouth-watering smell of barbecued foods. Burgers, ribs and seafood are classic choices, but as long as the grill is fired up, why stop there?
Barbecue may be considered a traditional American style, but it easily accommodates a wide range of spices and seasonings from around the world. This recipe combines Asian flavors with European preparation techniques for a side dish that also makes a great meatless entree.
Who says a casserole has to be baked in an oven? Prepare this creamy dish as is or experiment with your favorite seasonings. Another plus is that the whole casserole is cooked in a foil packet so there's no messy baking dish to wash.
Chile rellenos are a popular dish that's fun to eat, but they can be time-consuming to prepare, taking 60 minutes or more. This grilled version is vegetarian, non-greasy and ready in just about 30 minutes. If you'll be serving to kids, be sure to remove all the seeds for less heat.
Mushrooms have an earthy flavor on their own, but they also make a wonderful palette for a variety of flavor profiles. The dressing in this recipe is made with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and parsley for a fresh, light taste.
Rice may not be the first food that comes to mind when you think about grilling, but it cooks quite nicely inside a disposable foil pan. It takes only 15 minutes for the rice to soak up the flavors from chicken broth, green pepper, onion and mushrooms.
