This is the perfect side or main to bring to a cookout. If you haven’t tried miso with eggplant before, you’re in for a treat. The saltiness of the miso combined with the smoky umami of grilled eggplant is a match made in heaven. Glazing then grilling creates a melt-in-your-mouth eggplant with an incredible caramelization that we wish we could bottle up!
Want to impress but pressed for time? These perfectly-flaky biscuits can be whipped up in 30 minutes with a mushroom-based gravy you can simmer while the oven works its magic. The ultimate addition to a southern grill out.
Ripe peaches blended with concentrated rooibos tea is poured over vanilla bean ice cream with a splash of soda. It’s stupid easy to make and the texture is sublime. Another stunning flavor combo to try: blackberries, Earl Grey, and lavender. Float nirvana!
If everyone expects the vegan to bring a salad, do not disappoint! This caesar salad is completely plant-based and is elevated with sliced cantaloupe, blanched almonds, and grilled baguette. Ooh la la!
For a boozy addition to your cookout, cool off with these watermelon sangria slushies. We think they speak for themselves!
No BBQ is complete without a side of guacamole - but this one takes it to the next level with grilled corn, peaches, and the surprising twist of adding fresh basil.
Maple syrup and vanilla enhance deep, dark blackberries swirled with cashew coconut cream for a little sweet and a little sour -- summer goodness on a stick.
