“Summer smells! We had such a great family BBQ with our three oldest kids and their people! We have lots of diet stuff with Vegans and Gluten Free-ers but it doesn’t stop us one bit from throwing together a super summer BBQ.” ~Tanya Rose

Summer BBQ

Corn On The Cob



  • 8 cobs of corn


Corn on the COB! Do you like yours in the husk? OR no way, get that stuff away! We leave the husk on. I trim the ends and soak them in water for 20 minutes before they go on the grill. Rotate cobs periodically as they steam in their husks. Yum!

Shishito Peppers



  • shishito peppers
  • sesame oil
  • salt & black pepper


Shishito pepper season is back! MMMmmm! We LOVE this randomly spicy pepper at our house. There wasn’t a ton of room on the grill so these guys went in the frying pan. I keep it simple, sesame oil is so yummy with these. That and some salt and pepper is all they need! Sear a bit and that’s it, VOILÀ!

Zucchini & Yellow Squash


  • zucchini
  • yellow squash
  • oil
  • seasonings


Zucchini and yellow squash are also perfect grillers. I like to toss them with my favorite oil and seasonings, make a little tin foil ‘boat’ and throw them on the grill. I’m all about sesame oil and the kids love teriyaki, so we went SoyVey.



  • portobellos


I also love how great portobellos are on the grill. They hold flavors so well and are AMAZING in a sandwich or on top of a salad! What’s not to love about summer? So many great fresh food options! BON APPÉTIT!

Vegan Beet Burgers



  • 2 pkgs pre cooked organic beets
  • 1 t garlic
  • dry onions, chopped
  • 1/2 c walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 can black lentils
  • 1 can black beans
  • seasonings of choice
  • salt and black pepper


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, mashing the beets in.
  3. Adjust the amount of walnuts to create a consistency that can be spooned onto the parchment paper.
  4. Lightly press to patties and bake until golden brown, carefully flipping to brown the other side.

Happy 4th of July! xoxo
