Never thought I would say this...okra! Last year when a yoga student of mine offered me some okra from her garden I told her I had tried it and didn't care for it. She told me to try grilling it. I love it now! All it needs is a bit of olive oil and sea salt and grill.

I absolutely love BBQ'ed portobello mushrooms! I spray them with coconut oil, and sprinkle with pink Himalayan salt and cracked lemon pepper. They are especially delicious cooked on a charcoal grill!

Eggplant. Specifically eggplant "sandwiches" made with two slices of eggplant on the outside, with a tomato slice, a basil leaf, and a slice of mozzarella on the inside. I season them with a just a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. So good!

Tempeh!! Finally managed to track down Tempeh in London (have discovered WholeFoods) and look forward to sampling for the first time this summer! Besides that, some juicy peppers, salty chewy halumi and Quorn burgers and sausages. Mouth watering already!

My go-to favorite is grilled asparagus (tossed in a little olive oil) on a very hot grill, but I just learned that grilled carrots are incredible, and I'm excited to try them!

Really love asparagus, beets, corn, baby bok choy, sweet potato, carrots, peppers - I marinate them in a favorite salad dressing and onto the grill. My husband loves green onions or sweet onions, whole mushrooms and russet potatoes. We will often grill peaches, nectarines or pineapple when we are camping - just so easy and delicious!

Edamame beans with touch of smokey seasalt and chili oil.

Grilled onions with cheese on top. The best!

I will be grilling everything that I can grow in the soil.

tofu marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil and rolled in very fine bread crumbs, then grilled in aluminum foil - super delicious! takes 15 mins, result slightly crunchy

I look forward to spending the summer on my back porch. I work and eat out there during the day. When the nights get warmer, I sleep in a hammock with my dog bedded beneath me. In the dark, I can hear the insect chorus, the rumble of thunderstorms, and the light footfalls of deers as they forage. I can track the progress of the moon across the sky. Before each dawn, I'm awakened by the birdsong that surrounds me. At no other time do I feel so much a part of life.

Pineapple, peaches and other summer fruits. I love the way that grilling brings out the natural sugars in the fruit!
