- Margherita pizza. Make your own dough or bring some pre-made from the store. Top it with fresh marinara, chopped tomatoes, whole or chopped basil leaves and mozzarella cheese. You can purchase a pizza pan to go right on the grill top or simply cook your creation on a sheet of aluminum foil.
- Asparagus. Chop the woody ends off the asparagus stalks, then lay 6-8 stalks on a sheet of foil. Drizzle with olive oil and your choice of seasoning and close up the foil into a small packet. Place it on the grill for 4-5 minutes. Be careful of the steam when you unwrap the foil packet.
- Portabella mushrooms. When is a burger not a burger? When it's a giant, tasty portabella mushroom cap. Sprinkle with your favorite seasoning and grill like you would a hamburger until the mushroom is hot all the way through.
- Fruit kabobs. You've probably grills meat and veggie kabobs, but how about fruit kabobs. Chunks of pineapple, peaches, watermelon make great kabobs and the heat enhances the natural sweetness.
- Garden's bounty. If you have a vegetable garden in your yard, grill up the fruits (ok, veggies) of your labor. Strips of zucchini; halves of green, red, or yellow peppers; whole jalapeno or banana peppers; whole baby tomatoes or larger tomatoes cut in half are great candidates for the grill. You can even grill up the veggies and turn them into salsa using your food processor.
