Grillin'

I have been grilling up a storm since May. Below are some photographic evidence of my skills, or lack there of.

Cous cous, broccoli, tofu, and garlic:
Tofu and Cauliflower:
Tofu and Greens:

Green Beans and Avocados:

I was inspired by a show on the food channel. They had a bunch of not-ripe-enough avocados and decided to grill them with lemon, olive oil, and garlic. I gave it a try and stuffed them with a carrot, bell pepper salad. It was okay, but not as good as I was expecting. It was a good way to use up unripe avocados.
Tofu and Brocolli:
Onions, Zucchini, eggplant, tofu:
Tofu and Greens:

I have some pineapple, corn, and zucchini waiting to be grilled this week.

yay tofu! It all looks delicious!
I don't have a grill, but maybe I can coax my parents into grilling me some tofu and veggies!

I am so jealous! I have a little grill but no yard, and my hubby is very against the idea of grilling on the fire escape. Weirdo! I'm bringing my grill to Seaside this weekend, though. I never would have thought to grill avocado! Or plate anything I grill... I always just eat it off the kebab stick :)

All that tofu looks great - it's too bad the grilled avocado wasn't tastier, it sounds like an awesome thing to do with those hard-as-a-rock avocados.

Thanks everyone.
chelsea - I agree grilling on the fire escape may cause a visit from the fire department - so just make sure to cook lots of veggies!

The tofu recipes are the icing on the cake! I must add your wonderful blog to my blog list so I never miss a post.

I am a big fan of tofu but somehow just never thought to grill it. Thanks for the tips. Everything looks delicious!

Holy grilled avocado, batman! That's a cool idea, even if it wasn't as good as you'd hoped. The rest looks great too, especially all that tofu.

Mmm, grilly! Isn't grilled pineapple to die for?!

Geez, that tofu looks tantalizing...I always try to get mine to stay in large pieces like that, bu unfortunately my careless hand always messes it up somehow. Ah well, I'll just stick to baking . . .
