  1. This was a really good option for grilling. I actually made skewers with slices of red onion and cherry tomatoes. I tossed everything together in a bowl with the sauce and then thread the items onto skewers. Really added to the meal.

  2. I made this recipe with crimini mushrooms, red and yellow bell peppers and zucchini… used a combination of roasted sweet paprika and hot paprika, lots of fresh garlic, added sea salt and grilled it.. absolutely delicious and filling! Leftovers will go on a salad for lunch tomorrow. Served it with chopped italian parsley and fresh lime juice… really makes a difference.
