10 Vegetarian Grilling Recipes

Natural ingredients create sweet, savory and spicy dishes

6) Grilled Zucchini and Pepper Salad With Cilantro and Cumin by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Brigette Hafner: Here's another salad ideal for a summer potluck. It brings sweet and fresh flavors together: honey, cilantro and lemon accenting tomatoes, zucchini and bell peppers. The marinade can be made up to three days ahead and the salad should be served at room temperature. Per serving: 306 calories, 25g fat, 23g carbohydrates, 5g protein, 6g fiber

7) Grilled Corn by Christopher Idone: Grilling corn gives it an unparalleled deep, smoky quality. Try this recipe, which uses chiles, thyme and cilantro to bring a savory spice to it. If you don't have a food processor, a mortar and pestle can most likely be substituted for combining the herbs, and mixed with the butter in a blender until smooth. Per serving: 316 calories, 18g fat, 39g carbohydrates, 7g protein, 4g fiber

8) Grilled Tofu With Flame-Wilted Spinach by Steven Raichlin: This Asian-inspired tofu dish is sweet with honey and oranges, but tart with balsamic vinegar, brought together for complex flavor. It can be prepared easily in one to two days, or even the night of a party — just allow at least two hours for the tofu to marinate. Per serving: 501 calories, 24g fat, 36g carbohydrates, 42g protein, 10g fiber

9) Cherry Tomato Skewers With Fresh Basil by Diane Morgan: This Italian-inspired appetizer can be made in less than 15 minutes, making it a good choice for last-minute picnics or a simply prepared lunch. Try serving with fresh mozzarella as a salad for a more filling take on this recipe. Per serving: 121 calories, 10g fat, 7g carbohydrates, 2g protein, 2g fiber

10) Grilled Artichokes by Steven Raichlen: This fiber-filled recipe counts on olive oil, lemon, garlic and parsley to accent the flavor of grilled artichokes. If you are planning on grilling other things when making this recipe, be sure to put the artichokes on first, as they will probably need more time to grill than your other dishes. Per serving: 214 calories, 17g fat, 15g carbohydrates, 4g protein, 7g fiber
