Delicious & Healthy Summer BBQ Recipes!

Finding healthier summer recipes is always a treat! Here are a few of the recipes Keith & I have fallen in love with this summer!



The first recipe is for a Korean-Fusion Burger!



Burger

We used the Korean-Style burger patties from Sobeys, and we have also tried the Lean Sirloin Compliments brand as well! Both delicious! If you have some extra time, make your own patties using extra lean ground beef, or turkey!

BBQ up the burgers! 

Sauce

Mix together 2 tsp of wasabi paste, 2 tsp ginger paste, 2 tsp soya sauce (reduced sodium), and 1/4 of low-fat mayonnaise or similar dressing.

Pickled Slaw

Combine 2 cups of pre-made coleslaw, with added sliced red onion to 1/4 cup white vinegar and a sprinkle of sugar. 

Bun

Thin buns!! Our new favorite burger and sandwich-makers!

Side Dish


We BBQ'd corn on the cob - still in the husk! Delicious, fresh, and summery! 





The next recipe is for Sweet Onion Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Creamy Coleslaw!





Sanwich
Use 1 chicken breast per person - slice thawed chicken in half, length-wise. Brush on a light coat of extra virgin olive oil and salt & pepper to taste. BBQ on medium until thoroughly cooked. Add Sweet Onion bbq sauce, after 1st "flip" to taste. Make your own, or buy pre-made!! We enjoy Sensations brand, by Sobeys!
Creamy Coleslaw
Mix together 1 cup of coarsely grated carrot, 3/4 cup of shredded cabbage, 1/4 cup of sliced red onion, 2-3 tablespoons of low-fat ranch dressing (or another of your choice), fresh parsley, and the juice from half a lemon. Set aside until chicken is finished. 
Bun
Thin buns!! Our new favorite burger and sandwich-makers! After chicken is cooked, add coleslaw and chicken the warmed buns (use toaster or grill)!
Side Dish

We grilled delicious and fresh red peppers on the BBQ! So yummy and fresh :) 


Enjoy!
