There’s nothing better than the smell of barbecue wafting through your window in the summer heat. It’s certainly enough to get you running outside to enjoy the weather and spend time with those closest to you. It’s a smell that always reminds us of summer; a wonderful foray into picnicking with delicious, smoky food and yummy in-season staples.
If you’re trying to cut down your meat intake, however, barbecues are a tough place to be. It’s definitely something we’re trying to break; there are so many things you can cook on the grill that are veggie-based, even if it’s just roasting delicious red peppers over high heat. That smoky flavor is inescapable!
