Pure Food: Eat Clean with Seasonal, Plant-Based Recipes
Summer begs for grilling. Many people think a grill is just for meat, but once you’ve had a little experience with grilling fresh produce, the grill will become your best friend in the hot summer months. There is something unique about cooking on a grill — it just makes the flavors of ingredients blend superbly well and brings out the best in vegetables.In this recipe I combine a sauce called chimichurri — a green, herby sauce usually used to marinate meat — with a colorful array of vegetables. The hearty squash really takes on the chimichurri flavors. It’s the perfect summer grilling dish!In Pure Food: Eat Clean with Seasonal, Plant-Based RecipesVeronica Bosgraaf shares her easy vegetarian recipes — many of which are vegan and gluten-free, too — and tips for "cleaning" one's kitchen and lifestyle, from removing processed foods from the shopping cart at the supermarket to getting rid of chemical cleaners.
