Non Meat Foods You Should Be Grilling


Grilled bread is simply awesome. You can grill buns, baguettes, pitas, and more. Brush the bread with olive oil or butter before grilling.


You might not think about grilling fruit, but it tastes wonderful if done correctly. You can grill peaches, pineapple, watermelon wedges, nectarines, pears, and more. In fact, our next post will be all about grilling fruit.


Polenta is a paste or dough made from cornmeal. Polenta is usually boiled and then typically fried or baked. However, it can also be grilled. You start by traditionally making your Polenta. Then you should let it cool down and set. Next you’ll cut the Polenta into squares and grill them for just a few minutes until your squares are heated through. Grilled Polenta is best served with grilled vegetables or tomato sauce.


Grilled veggies are one my most favorites things to eat. You can grill everything from corn to asparagus and lots of things in between. Onions, zucchini, tomatoes, scallions, peppers, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and artichokes all taste great on the grill.
