Discover the Grilled Vegetable

Think out­side the box this 4th of July and instead of hav­ing the same olé’ coleslaw or pota­to sal­ad, exper­i­ment with your favorite veg­eta­bles.  Grilling brings out the nat­ur­al sug­ars of veg­eta­bles which caus­es them to caramelize and add a sweet and smoky fla­vor.

Grilled Tofu with Cilantro Sauce

Tofu is so ver­sa­tile, low calo­rie and packed with healthy pro­tein that I’m always look­ing for new recipes.  The cilantro sauce real­ly makes the tofu stand out.  It’s also deli­cious served with grilled sum­mer squash, mush­rooms or oth­er grilled veg­eta­bles.  I mopped it up with some crusty bread, like a baguette.   Ingre­di­ents: 2 cups cilantro leaves 1⁄4 cup canola...
