Four Simple, Plant-Based Recipes Built For Summer Grilling Season

Spice up your summer cookouts with these plant-based dishes!

Now that summer is near and the cookout invites are rolling in, it’s time to think about ways to make delicious grilling pairings that make veggies and fruits the stars for a change. We know it’s easy to default to protein-based foods when you’re meal planning, but with some fresh fruits, veggies, and a Path of Life blend, you’ve got an easy way to bring something nutritious and uniquely flavorful to the table. Give one of these recipes a try to see just how easy it is to make grilled pairings that will elevate and inspire in equal measure.

Grilled Romaine with Path of Life Southwest Mango Quinoa Blend

If you’ve never grilled romaine lettuce before, don’t fret, it’s super simple and will make your salad feel like a true superstar. Cut the lettuce lengthwise so that the leaves stay connected to the core, brush them with a little oil, then toss them on the grill at medium-high heat. While doing this, heat up a Path of Life Southwest Mango Quinoa Blend and once your lettuce gets those grill marks, you’re good to go. Just plate the lettuce, top with the quinoa blend, and enjoy.

Grilled Quinoa and Kale Stone Fruit Salad

Is there anything better on a warm summer day than a stone fruit salad? Actually, yes, a grilled stone fruit salad! All it takes to make are some peaches, plums, and cherries cut in half — and in the case of the cherries, pitted — a little bit of oil and a few minutes on the grill to give them perfect grill marks and take their flavor to the next level. In the meantime, cook up a batch of Path of Life The Original Quinoa & Kale Blend, mix it all together in a bowl with some spinach and your choice of dressing, and watch this salad disappear.

Grilled, Marinated Tofu with Cilantro Lime Rice

If you’re looking to bring some plant-based protein to the grill, there’s nothing better than some grilled tofu that’s been marinated just the way you like it. Tofu is a great source of protein and can easily take on the flavor of a marinade — we recommend Jerk Tofu for a little extra kick! Grill it for a few minutes until it’s just right then arrange the tofu pieces atop our Cilantro Lime Rice Blend. We promise, once this one is on your plate, everyone at the barbecue will be eyeing it.

Grilled Cauliflower Steaks with Path of Life Mediterranean Blend

Steaks, but make them plant-based! That’s exactly what this recipe does, giving you a meal that’s nutritious, filling, and flavorful in every bite. Cut your cauliflower into a few steaks, season to taste, then toss them on the grill. Plate them alongside a Path of Life Mediterranean Blend for a grilled pairing that will become your new cookout staple.
