Corn on the cob with lemon and pepper marinade
This is one of the simplest and most popular vegetarian grill recipes: simply brush the corn on the cob with a little olive oil and cook it for 10-15 minutes on the edge of the grill. It’s time to keep going.
While you’re waiting, combine the lemon juice with the pepper, salt, and a tiny bit of sugar in a small bowl. Lemon juice can also be used to drizzle over grilled corncobs.
Sweet potato with avocado dip
Sweet potatoes should be washed and cut into long, thin slices. Grill the wedges for about 5 minutes on each side after brushing them with a little oil. Avocados should be mashed with salt and pepper and lemon juice, garlic, or other seasonings to taste.
Grilled meat and fish recipes
Salmon in peanut sauce
After about 30 minutes in the fridge, remove the salmon from the marinade by scraping it with a spoon and discarding the marinade. After that, put it on a hot grill in an aluminum pan and cook it for 8-12 minutes.
Chicken and vegetable skewers
Slicing the chicken breast into small cubes along with the peppers and zucchini, place them on a skewer. Place the meat on the grill and cook it until it’s done, seasoning it with salt, pepper, chili flakes, and rosemary.
Brazilian style steak
Grill some beef rump over high heat until it’s done. About 5 minutes later, allow the meat to rest. Finally, thinly slice the meat and season it with olive oil, lime juice, and sea salt.

Tips for the side dishes
There’s nothing wrong with potato salad, herb baguette, or pasta salad, but the side dishes aren’t exactly healthy food. But when it comes to side dishes, there are so many options that you’re guaranteed to find something delicious!
Fruity rocket and mango salad
Place the arugula in a bowl after washing and drying it. Separate the mango’s flesh from its stone, then cut it into cubes. Cut the spring onions and red peppers into thin rings after washing.
Add the arugula to the rest of the salad. Dress the salad with a vinaigrette made from balsamic vinegar, mustard, honey, oil, salt, and pepper.
Fitness-friendly potato salad
Make sure to use salted water when cooking waxy potatoes. Wash and dice an apple and a cucumber while the soup cools down. Mix your natural yogurt with mustard, some oil, salt, pepper, and fresh chives to make the dressing.
Potatoes that have been allowed to cool completely should be peeled and sliced. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and then top with additional sunflower seeds (if desired) if you so desire.
Ketchup, cocktail sauce, and aioli can all go their separate ways. Consider these delectable and nutritious alternatives.
The avocado Dip is one of the most enduring classics. The first step is to mash an avocado and dice a tomato into small pieces. You can also add some low-fat yogurt and salt and pepper to the mixture for extra flavor.
Herb quark with lots of protein
The herb quark can be made in a matter of minutes! Quarks and herbs of your choice are all you need. Mix the quark with a little water and chop the herbs into small pieces. Quark can be seasoned to your liking with salt, pepper, and garlic if you so desire.
After the barbecue, would you like some ice cream? You don’t have to miss out on dessert because we’ve got you covered here, too!
The hard core of the pineapple can easily be removed by simply peeling it. It’s then time to slice the meat into strips and place it on the grill. Serve with cinnamon after grilling for about 30 seconds on each side.
Fruit skewers with yogurt
Prepare the fruits and vegetables by washing and chopping them into small cubes. Mangoes can be peeled, the flesh separated from the pit, and the fruit cut into pieces. Place the skewers of fruit on the edge of the grill and cook them for a few minutes. Dessert with plain yogurt and serve the finished skewers.
