Amazing Summer Eats

We have been having some super good eats here this summer so far. Totally loving the Grill and trying some new flavors and new, light recipes.
First up:
Garlicky Rosemary Broiled New Potatoes. I made this recipe up myself, just drizzeling olive oil over the potatoes and then sprinkling with seasoned salt, garlic powder, and chopping fresh rosemary very very finely. Toss it all up and bake on a high heat (like 450*) and then finish up with a Broil.
Grilled Asparagus. Extremely easy. Toss with a bit of Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar, kosher salt and a bit of pepper.
Stuffed Portabellas. Got this recipe off of Pinterest. It is wonderful. The Portabella is stuffed with roasted tomatoes, feta and topped with fresh chopped herbs.
Just another nice close up of the Stuffed Portabellas
Balsamic Grilled Shish Kebobs. Picture pretty well self explanatory. For the "meat" I used wheat Gluten. There's zucchini, red onion, red peppers, mushrooms and pineapple on them besides. 
Chipotle's Cilantro Lime Rice. Wow... so delicious!! Freshly squeezed lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro.
Homemade Pasta-SO easy to do! (especially with the Kitchen Aid Pasta attachment!) The kids have been begging to make it again and this time I am going to actually use Semolina flour instead of all-purpose flour. (I had to order some online. evidentally Semolina flour is fairly unpopular to find?)
We have also enjoyed Kristin's Grilled Veggie Sandwhiches again... So mouthwatering good!
Also we made the Greek Pitzah's- just used regular olives, not Kalamata. I love them and so does Hannah, but the rest of the family not so much. ;) I topped mine with fresh Cilantro. :)
And the delicious NorthStar Burgers- wow. if you want to get beets into your diet, this is the way to go! These are amazingly good.
I really recommend checking out Kristin's blog- Whole Living Whole Health for some incredibly tasty, vegetarian (and many vegan) recipes. She is a fantastic cook!
I also tried baking corn in the oven. It works! I first soaked the ears in water (husks and all) for about 30 minutes and then I piled it all on the middle oven rack and turned on the oven up to 350* heat. I probably baked the corn for about 25 minutes or so? It was so moist and delicious!
One last thing I will share was one I saw (Kristin) make when we were on the Outer Banks at the beginning of the month. It was a whole wheat tortilla with black bean refried beans spread on one have of it. Then she put corn kernals that she had toasted a bit as well as sauteed red onion and I put on some diced tomates as well and spread a bit of Vegenaisse on the other half. If you want you can put a sprinkle of cheese on and then fold it in half and fry it up in a bit of coconut oil for a delicious and easy lunch! :)
