Many of us take advantage of the summer months to grill outdoors and I wanted to share a few ideas for vegetable marinades with you. In addition to the marinades, I also wanted to show you how you can make use of the grilled vegetables in different meals.
I tested out three different marinades for grilling vegetables then made these three different meals. I used about 2 lbs of sliced vegetables (eggplant, zucchini and bell peppers) for each meal.
The three marinades were lemon herb, balsamic and honey mustard. The first meal is a vegetarian chickpea pasta salad with feta cheese. The second meal is a vegan grain bowl with tofu and edamame. The third meal is wrap a with chicken. Each of these meals has 19 to 26 grams of protein and 15 to 17 grams of fiber. Feel free to use any of these marinades to create any of the these meals; I simply paired them for simplicity.

You will find many vegetables in the Cajun cuisine, but celery, onion and bell peppers are considered to be the Holy Trinity in Cajun dishes. Although there is no specific seasoning blend used in Cajun cuisine, many times cayenne pepper and black pepper are found in Cajun seasoning blends, even though Cajun food isn’t necessarily very spicy.Yum!

Don't let its visual simplicity fool you; this meal is yummy! We only added some garlic powder and a little olive oil to the brown rice because the main attraction--the salmon--is full of flavor! For our greens we have some steamed broccoli. When baking salmon it's very important not to overcook it. After adding the jerk seasoning, we baked the salmon for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees F.Yum! Read More!
Here's another quick meal prep idea you can use if you're in a rush. In this meal we have chunks of chicken breast sauted in coconut oil, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder; brown rice with green onions, corn and green peas lightly sauteed in a pinch of olive oil; steamed broccoli. By cutting up the breast into chunks, you create a larger surface area for the spices to cover the meat. The result: More flavor in each bite! The coconut oil also adds a great flavor to the chicken.Yum! Read More!
