• Summer Grilling Recipes We Love

    Jul 19, 2018

    Summer is in full swing and it's time to fire up the grill! Whether it’s steak, sausage, veggies, or kabobs, there’s barely a food item on earth that doesn’t taste better grilled. For some sun-filled barbeque fun, Timbercreek brings you this list of great grilling recipes to help make the most of summer.

    Grilled Snapper

    Grilled and/or blackened red snapper is a succulent Cajun-style main. While often fried in a cast iron skillet, it grills even better. The recipe involves a basic pepper, salt, and cajun spice rub, and calls for the grill to be as hot as possible so the fish cooks quickly, and blackens on each side. Top with grilled veg, asparagus, or vinaigrette salad. Check out more.

    Perfect Steak

    There’s little better than a perfectly cooked steak in summer. While opinions vary on cooking methods, this approach makes it quick and easy. Allow the steak to rise to room temperature after you take it out of the fridge. Bring your grill to high heat, rub your meat with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and cook for 6 minutes (medium-rare) flipping every minute. Let it rest for 2 minutes. Read more.

    Grillable Veggie Burgers

    While homemade veggie burgers are always a lovely idea, getting them to be grillable is another story. With all the beans and chopped veg, there’s not a lot in there that can hold those suckers together. But with this base of rice, beans, and avocado oil, we have the perfect grillable answer.  Learn more.

    Grilled Portobello Burgers

    One of the easiest and most flavourful non-meat burger options is the classic portobello mushroom. The same as a burger in size, and absolutely decadent in flavour, portobello mushroom caps make the perfect grillable burger substitute. Learn more.

    Chicken Kabobs

    Whether it’s chicken, beef, or pure veggie, kabobs are an easy and delicious meal to grill in the summer. To make things even easier, opt for pre-cut or pre-marinated skewer-sized portions of meat available at most grocery stores and butchers. Learn more.

  • Meatless Meals You Can Grill This Summer!

    Jul 04, 2017

    iStock-538168264Summertime is officially grilling season. Not everything you grill has to have grazed on grass or been grain fed. Timbercreek Communities wants to share some recipes for meatless meals you can grill this summer!

    Grilled Eggplant and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich with Halloumi

    These delicious Grilled Eggplant, Roasted Red Pepper and Halloumi Sandwiches are a tasty way to enjoy some summer produce while you fire up the grill! Halloumi is a firm Greek cheese (from Cypress) that can stand up to the grill. This is one serious grilled cheese you'll never forget.

    Grilled Tofu Tacos with Avocado Cream

    Looking for a great gluten-free vegan meal to throw on the grill this summer? Try these Tofu Tacos! The tofu is marinated with chipotle and paprika for a smokey, summertime flavour that pairs perfectly with a tangy red cabbage simple-slaw and a cooling, avocado cream with lime. If you really want to go all-out, you can make your own corn tortillas (it’s easy!).

    Seitan Negimaki

    These Seitan (pronounced: say-tan) Negimaki are beautifully grilled vegan teriyaki rolls stuffed with vibrant scallions marinated in a simple (and simply delicious) hoisin and mirin marinade. They are juicy and delicious -- the perfect blend of savoury and sweet. You’ll never miss the meat!

    Grilled Portobello and Peach Burger

    You may never have thought to put them together, but you’ll be glad you did when you try this Grilled Portobello and Peach Burger. The texture and flavour are amazing. The combination of beefy herb-marinated portobellos and sweet peaches is perfect -- especially when combined with creamy guacamole and sweet potato fries.

    Cilantro-Lime Marinated Veggie Kabobs with Barley Kale Salad

    If you want a versatile grilled veggie meal and you’re not really into following recipes, then these Cilantro-Lime Marinated Veggie Kabobs with Barley Kale Salad are for you. This is a rough recipe, a guide. Simply use whatever veggies you have on hand and add some cheese if you’re in the mood (try feta, goat, or a little queso fresco). The non-recipe comes together quickly and the skewered veggies are fun to toss on the grill.

    Timbercreek hopes these grillable vegetarian recipes make you want to fire up the grill. These meatless meals are tasty, easy to make and filling! To find your home with Timbercreek Communities across Canada, please visit our website.
