Summer’s Almost Here—Let’s Get Grilling!


America is heading into a long three-day holiday weekend, which means friends, family and plenty of food on the grill.

This weekend, crack open a cold bottle of gluten-free beer and let the fire do the cooking with these summery recipes from Gluten-Free Living contributor Isadora Lassance.

Here’s what she has to say:

Move over meat.

You can do a lot more with your grill than cook hamburgers and steak. Potatoes, fruit and vegetables come off the grill with new flavor in the following gluten-free recipes.

Potato wedges are seasoned with five simple ingredients before they earn their grill stripes. You might not immediately think of peaches when grill season begins, but this flavorful fruit, fresh off the grill, is combined with goat cheese, almonds and mint in a tasty salad perfect for backyard dining. Zucchini, yellow squash and onion add a smoky flavor to pesto pizza when they first spend a little time on the grill.

If you still can’t get the thought of grilled burgers off your mind, try veggie burgers made with black beans to push your health and taste boundaries.
