Vegetarian Main Course Recipes You'll Want to Grill All Summer Long
Summer vegetarian entrées doesn't just mean salads! The meatfree main courses here are satisfying, hearty, and something everyone will get on board with, vegetarian or not. We've included the classics, from grilled pizza to eggplant parmesan, but are also thinking outside the box.
If you're looking for recipes that are an all-in-one meal, you'll want to devour Grilled Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers. Want a twist on Pizza Friday fit for herbivores? We've got you covered with delicious white Grilled Asparagus and Ricotta Pizza, West Coast Grilled Vegetable Pizza, and a classic Tomato and Basil Pizza. Using store-bought dough cuts down on prep work, if you're cooking for a large crowd (but it's surprisingly easy to make your own pizza dough, and it's something we love doing). You can also use store-bought sauce or try the asparagus and ricotta pizza which skips tomatoes altogether. After all, who wouldn't agree that cheese is really all you need?
Not surprisingly many of these recipes make vegetables the star of the show which means bright, colorful meals with plenty of farm-fresh produce. This summer, look out for vegetables that are in their peak season like new potatoes, tomatoes, corn, eggplants, and zucchini—and that's not even the half of it! Get to know your local farmer; they'll offer recommendations based on their best crops.
Now that the weather is warm, you can break out your coals (or turn on the gas) and get grilling. These recipes can easily be mixed and matched to create a single, cohesive meal or a bigger, help yourself-style potluck.
