Meatless Grilling Recipes That Are So Right for Summer
Long gone are the days when "cookout" merely meant a grill full of hot dogs and burgers. Vegetables steal the spotlight in these savory, satisfying meatless recipes. Cooking a vegetarian doesn't mean that your dinner will lack flavor or substance. These recipes for vegetarian burgers, grilled pizzas, stuffed vegetables, grilled vegetables, and more will satsify and delight your family and guests, too.
A meat-free recipe we love for summer is grilled pizza. Whether you top yours with a mix of veggies and cheese—like asparagus, tomato, and fontina cheese—or prefer to make a classic combination like tomato and basil, everyone will go crazy for these charred on the outside, pillow-y on the inside pies. The best part is you can grill up a bunch of pizza and build a DIY toppings bar so vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters can all garnish their meals with their favorite toppings.
Some of our favorite meatless sides from the grill are guaranteed crowd-pleasers: Grilled garlic bread with herb butter is savory and smoky in a totally irresistible way. The charred bread stays crispy and holds up to the oozing, melted garlic butter that seeps through every nook and cranny. An unexpected combination is grilled peas with toasted coconut. They are snackable just like edamame, which means they'll be gone before you know it (make a double batch just to be safe!).
Whether you're hosting a big backyard barbecue or just want a healthy weeknight dinner with plenty of flavor, these meatless grilling recipes deliver. There's a ton of inspiration here for the long summer nights ahead, so get cooking!

Grilled Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers
This colorful stuffed peppers is altogether different—no oven needed! It uses the grill in two different ways; direct heat to grill the peppers, then indirect heat to cook some of the stuffing ingredients—couscous, tomato, and raisins—in a skillet for the stuffing. Once stuffed the peppers are cooked through in the same pan on top of the grill.
