These plant-based recipes will guarantee your backyard is this summer’s hot spot

Veggie Hot Dogs.

With warmer weather and sunny skies quickly approaching, it’s time to enjoy one of the best summer activities – firing up the grill and inviting friends over for a relaxing barbeque.As the host, ensure all guests can enjoy the deliciousness of summer grilling with Lightlife, a leader in the plant-protein category. Whether your guests are vegetarians, flexitarians or meat-lovers – these plant-based recipes will guarantee your backyard is this summer’s hot spot.

Hot dogs are a summer grilling staple, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to the standard dog on a bun. Instead of just serving your franks with classic mustard and ketchup, offer guests the chance to build the Smart Dog of their dreams with unique options like spicy jalapenos, sweet banana peppers and fresh avocados.

It’s safe to say it’s not a true BBQ without a burger. Offer guests the perfect “burger bar” by grilling up plant-protein packed Garden Veggie Tempeh Burgers and serve alongside tomatoes, cheese, lettuce – basically all the classic burger condiments, and let guests create the burger their grilling dreams.

A refreshing salad is always a great addition to a summer get-together. For a simple salad that’s packed with flavor, grill some Smart Tenders Savory Chick’n, place over fresh summer greens and top with sesame seeds for a colorful salad guests will love.

Foodies who love a good frank will love this flavorful twist on the classic hot dog. Simply throw some Smart Dogs into your favorite hot dog bun and top with a fresh sesame apple slaw made with crisp Granny Smith apples and sesame flavors. For this recipe, extra ingredients are necessary as requests for seconds are guaranteed.

4 Summer Grilling Recipes You Can't Resist

You've tried grilled salmon, shrimp, and flank steak before, but Kevin Alexander's smoky take on these classics will open your eyes. They're even better when paired with his grilled quinoa macaroni and cheese!

With warm weather creeping in, there's no better time to break out the grill and add an outdoor element to meal prep. Soak in the sun, fire up the pit, and bask in the glory of these fresh-off-the-barbie dishes. They're protein-rich, flavor-packed, and ready to cool off any hot summer day.

Grilled Southwest Salmon

Salmon is one of the best proteins to add to your diet. It's flavorful, loaded with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and hearty enough to give you long-lasting energy. When it comes to seasoning, don't get too fancy just keep it simple! A little flavoring on this fatty fish will go a long way.


Grilled Shrimp and Avocado Kabobs

What's better than the meaty texture of grilled shrimp? How about the addition of grilled avocado? This easy grilling recipe uses minimal ingredients but packs in maximum flavor. Throw on some peppers and onions and top with a lime-infused marinade. The whole thing takes about 30 minutes to whip up. The best part: It passes the #FitMenCook 3-color meal rule.

What's that, you ask? Challenge yourself to eat at least three different colors at each meal. The colors can only be from a vegetable, fruit, grain, or legume. Animal-based proteins are not included.


BBQ-Grilled Healthier Mac & Cheese with Asparagus

If you're looking for the next epic side dish for your upcoming barbecue or picnic, here you go. This healthy take on a classic comfort food takes things up a notch, since it's baked on a wood-pellet grill like a Traeger. Stick it on the grill right beside your meat and veggies, then sit back and enjoy epic grilling at its finest. I guarantee, this crowd pleaser will make you the life of the party.


Garlic Peppered Flank Steak With Lime

Since installing my new wood-pellet grill, I've been in a grilling frenzy. I've especially been loving grilled flank steak. Not only is it one of the leanest cuts recommended by the American Heart Association, it's also nearly impossible to mess up. While lean, flank steak is such a soft cut of beef that you don't have to worry about it being too tough after cooking. Check out this recipe I whipped up, and try it for yourself.
