Grilled Vegetable Flatbread

Well Dined | Grilled Vegetable Flatbread

This week Melissa and Sarah take their vegetarian lunch adventure to the grill!  Woohoo!  We've been meaning to grill all summer, but for some reason every time we pick a day it starts to rain.  This time was no exception - rain was forecasted starting in the afternoon - but we decided to try and grill before it started, and we succeeded!  Finally!

This flatbread had been kicking around in our minds for a while, the product of brainstorming, and I am so pleased with the way it turned out!  Crispy grilled flatbread topped with pesto, grilled and fresh veggies, feta, and fresh basil - the epitome of Summer.

First, we made the flatbread dough - which is very easy and requires no yeast or rising time!  Just flour, salt, baking powder, water, milk, and oil mixed together.

Shrimp Packets with Mango Salsa

Here's a fun summer dish for camping, grilling, or even using the oven (which is what I did).  It's easy, fast, filling, and healthy.

Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray (I used coconut oil) and raw shrimp, couscous, and a big handful of spinach.  Cook using your method of choice for about 10 minutes - steam will fill the foil packet and cook all the ingredients.

Open up the packets and add in a fresh salsa made with avocado, mango, tomato, red onion, and lime juice.  You can eat straight out of the packets, or transfer to a bowl.  Either way, this fresh dish is sure to please the whole family!

Hello, Summer!  Juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and fresh basil, all stuffed inside a hearty burger - oh yeah, baby!

This is a fairly straightforward recipe, the key is in the setup - have all of your ingredients close by and ready to go.  Season your beef however you like (I put bacon in mine!) and form into thin patties; make an indentation in the center.

Load up with halved grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella bits, and ribbons of basil.

Place another thin patty on top and seal the edges to encase the filling.

Turkey Apple Burgers with Avocado, Tomato, and Corn Salad

Ah, summer - hot weather, cool drinks, fresh produce, grilling.  For me, summer is mostly about air conditioning and trying not to get sunburned; but there are times when I get excited about it - beach trips, BBQ's, long days.  On one of these bouts of enthusiasm I decided that I wanted legit summer food, so here it is.
