Summer in Canada is the season for barbecues, where we gather with family and friends to share good times. Grilling is a joy, and at TeamNutrition, we believe that eating should always be a delightful experience. Here are our ideas for preparing delicious BBQ recipes, all lovingly created by our dietitian-nutritionists.
Proteins: Explore New Flavours
Tofu and tempeh: Delicious Plant-Based Alternatives
Whether you are vegetarian or just curious about new tastes, tofu and tempeh are excellent options. Try the recipe for Greek-style tofu skewers for a unique and tasty dish or opt for our tempeh satay skewers to experiment with new flavours.
Fish and Seafood: Freshness and Creativity
Burgers: Classic and Varied Choices
For burgers, extra lean ground meats, turkey, or even vegetarian options are fantastic! Try our chickpea and sun-dried tomato burgers, veggie burgers with ginger and curry, or our half-veggie burger patties.
Meats: The Taste of Authenticity
Choose lean cuts like pork chops for a lighter yet still flavourful option. Explore our BBQ pork chop recipe and let yourself be carried away by the richness of grilled flavours.
Side Vegetables: Freshness and Color
Vegetables, the Stars of the BBQ
Vegetables are full of flavour, especially when grilled. On skewers, in foil packets, or directly on the grill, vegetables can be prepared in a myriad of ways. Try our recipes for vegetable foil packets, baby potatoes and cheese curds with curry, or our Elotes-style grilled corn on the BBQ.
Grilled Desserts: Sweetness and Indulgence
Grilled Pineapple: A Sweet Surprise
To finish beautifully, what's better than a grilled dessert? Our recipe for grilled pineapple and coconut crumble will take you on a journey!
