This week is all about celebrating Dads! In honour of Father’s Day this Sunday, we’ve compiled a list of easy –to-make AND delicious BBQ recipes that Dads will certainly enjoy:
BBQ PIZZA ON NAAN BREAD:
On a piece of whole wheat naan bread, choose a base of either olive oil, pesto or tomato sauce.
In a pan on medium heat, add olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, organic vegetables (tomato, spinach, red onions, mushrooms, and any others of your choice) and lightly cook for about 3 minutes. Top your naan bread with your cooked vegetables, as well as organic goat or feta cheese (use a vegan substitute if desired – such as Emborg dairy-free cheese).
Cook on the grill with the lid closed on medium heat for 10 minutes, or until naan and cheese start to brown. Slice and enjoy!
Cut and core an organic pineapple, and slice into rings (or length wise if you prefer). Set the BBQ to high heat and brush the grill lightly with olive oil. Lightly brush the pineapple rings with olive oil, and dust with cinnamon. Add the pineapple to the grill, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Serve drizzled with organic maple syrup!
Set the BBQ to medium heat and brush grill lightly with olive oil. Slice a head of organic cauliflower length-wise, leaving thick steak-like sizes of cauliflower. Brush both sides lightly with olive oil, and top one side with cheese of your choice, organic BBQ sauce, chopped organic green onions, organic sundried tomatoes, sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne (to taste) and smoked paprika.
Cook on the grill with the lid closed for 7-10 minutes, or until cheese has melted and cauliflower has begun to brown. Serve warm.
GRILLED PEACHES WITH RICOTTA CHEESE:
Slice 2-4 organic peaches in half, skin on, and remove pits. Brush the peaches lightly with olive oil, and cook on medium heat on the grill flesh side down until grill marks appear (usually 5 minutes). Flip onto skin side and cook until soft.
In a bowl, mix approximately 1 cup of ricotta cheese with 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract and 2 tbsp. of honey. Top peaches with ricotta mixture and pine nuts for an extra crunch!
