Summer Barbecue 101: Planning a Healthy Cookout

Summertime is the time when many of our spouses love to don their chef’s apron and light up the barbecue grill to cook outdoors.  Personally, I love it!  I do prepare the foods in the house, the marinades, salads etc.   I set up everything in individual Tupperware containers with seals, so they stay bug-free outdoors, than I let “hubbie” take over!  I am free to enjoy my guests without worrying about the cooking. All the men also love to congregate around the barbecue grill sharing their opinions.

Grilling is a favorite summer cooking technique that enhances the flavor of many dishes, including lean meat, skinless chicken breasts, fish, veggies, and even fruits. Whether you’re already a grill master — or aspiring to become one — you’ll still benefit from using the right grilling utensils. If you are a“newbie”, make sure you have the following equipment on hand before you get started. (clicking on the links will take you to our Amazon store page)

It’s almost July 4th and every American is thinking fireworks and parades or lemonade and fried chicken but my mind turns to molasses.

Really.


 

Eating Healthy With Red, White and Blue

Fourth of July is a patriotic time to celebrate with family and friends. But it can also be a time to eat healthy, nutritious, red, white and blue food! This dish incorporates purple [blue] potatoes, red beets and white goat cheese. As a Registered Dietitian, I’m more than happy to serve up a healthy [and All-American!] dish this year. Purple potatoes are rich in the same antioxidants found in blueberries and pomegranate seeds. Red beets are rich in fiber, vitamins A, B and C, and folic acid [an especially important nutrient for mamas-to-be]. Goat cheese is a good source of protein and calcium, and offers a tangy and creamy bite. The cheese pairs nicely with the different textures of the potatoes and beets.

I always tell my clients to try and “eat the rainbow”, and this dish definitely fits the bill. And it doesn’t hurt that this recipe could not be simpler to put together!

When I first started becoming religious it was a real challenge to sort through the secular holidays to decide which ones I still felt comfortable celebrating.  Certain holidays got the boot, but I’m proud that July 4th is a holiday that my secular and religious cohorts alike celebrate with relatively equal vigor.  Now, I’ll stop myself from going on a rant about how great America is and what a blessing it is that American Jewry has flourished so beautifully.  I will be newly arrived in Israel this 4th of July where my celebrations will be much more subdued, but I plan to celebrate by giving thanks for the simple, and often overlooked, pleasures that we enjoy in America.  With that simplicity in mind, here are 10 sweet and savory sandwiches, the ultimate marriage of simple and satisfying, to enjoy this 4th of July, no matter where in the world you happen to be.

Morad Pomegranate Wine for Dinner and a Cocktail

We all know that wine isn’t just for drinking (you can cook with it too) but did you know that it’s important that the wine you cook with should be just as tasty as the wine you want to drink? In fact, when you open up a bottle of wine to pour into your favorite stews and sauces, it’s a good idea to pour yourself a glass to drink while you cook. That’s an order! And since I must practice what I preach, I’m opening up a bottle of Morad Pomegranate Wine right now to drink while I write about this incredible sweet and sour wine made entirely of the finest pomegranates from Israel.

In the insane summer heat in Long Island, I pretty much drink everything ice-cold. But watered down drinks are a pet peeve of mine so I’ve been having some fun with the solution to that problem. By making my own flavored ice cubes, I have control over the flavors that keep my drinks cool and my kids love helping fill the ice cube trays with their favorite fruits and drinks! Here are my 6 favorite ice cube flavors but the options are endless! You can even make savory and spicy ice cubes for whiskey and tomato juice.

I went to ETC Steakhouse in Teaneck NJ for my birthday a few years back after we featured Chef Seth, his restaurant and recipes in the pages of our magazine.  Among other things I ordered a Warm Tarragon Potato Salad and could not get it out of my mind.  Crispy taters tossed in creamy dressing have been dancing around in my head, my thoughts, my dreams for what seems like years.  I took one look at the Gold’s creamy Horseradish Sauce and instantly thought about recreating my Quick & Kosher version of this perfect summer BBQ recipe for you all.  This dish is all kinds of crazy good… Watch this easy how-to-video and learn how to make my new obsession in less than 3 minutes.

Grilling fruit has become popular recently and once you try it you will know why.  In this issue of the magazine we pair grilled plums with grilled pound cake but you can see here that pineapple, peaches and mango are all amazing on the grill.  Don’t worry chocolate lovers, we have not left you out.  Whether for July 4th or any other BBQ day, these desserts will keep you out of the kitchen and enjoying the Summer.

There’s nothing like biting into a juicy burger, soft bun, crisp lettuce, fresh sliced tomatoes, oozing with grilled onions and ketchup.  Burgers aren’t limited to beef though—try these delish variations using fish, turkey, and veggies. And when the ol’ ketchup & mustard just won’t do, top these creations with special sauce, pico de gallo, and black olive tapenade. No boring burgers at this “Q!” (Go ahead—lick your fingers, nobody’s looking.)
