Summer barbecues and Father’s Day go hand-in-hand, and we can’t wait to celebrate all you dads this weekend with an al fresco feast. Join us in turning up the fresh flavor and plant-powered nutrition with delicious, gluten-free recipes that put seasonal produce at the center of the plate.
Curried Vegetable Polenta Kabobs, Naturally Ella for Ancient Harvest
A fun and flavorful twist on a barbecue favorite, these kabobs are made of golden chunks of Ancient Harvest Polenta as well as in-season veggies like plump cherry tomatoes. They’re great as a side dish but can also stand alone as a tasty, plant-based entrée.
Lentil and Mushroom Quinoa Burgers, Fit and Frugal for Ancient Harvest
Looking for something a bit, well, meatier? These protein-packed veggie burgers feature cooked quinoa, lentils, grated carrots, baby portabella mushrooms, chopped walnuts, quinoa flakes and mashed sweet potatoes for hearty, satisfying texture and fantastic flavor. Don’t forget the tablespoon of chipotle for extra kick.
DIY BBQ Rub, Capturing Joy
This quick and easy DIY rub can be added to your favorite veggie burgers (see above) or other protein before it hits the grill. Bonus: A small jar of this would make an excellent Father’s Day gift – especially since the recipe comes with adorable (and free!) printable labels.
Homemade Barbecue Sauce, Barefoot in the Kitchen
Like your barbecue on the saucy side? Then you should know that homemade is so much better than store-bought – especially when you use a recipe like this one, which calls for hoisin, soy sauce (use gluten-free) and Worcestershire.
Grilled Gluten-Free Pizza with Peas, Lemon and Mint, The Bojon Gourmet (pictured)
The ultimate party food, pizza is easy to customize and share – and we love this grilled and gluten-free take, perfect for a backyard feast. The seasonal combination of fresh green peas, Meyer lemon and mint is delicious – but feel free to experiment with other topping combinations as well.
Asian Sesame Ginger Macaroni Salad, Fit and Frugal for Ancient Harvest
Classic macaroni salad is given a bold, flavorful twist with this eye-catching recipe, which features our Ancient Harvest Supergrain Black Bean & Quinoa Elbows, fresh vegetables, and a dressing made of creamy peanut butter, rice vinegar and sesame oil.
Gluten-Free, Vegan Ice Cream Cones, Fork and Beans for Ancient Harvest
Does Dad have a sweet tooth? Make a batch of these amazing ice cream cones (with Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour) to be filled with rich ice cream or fresh fruit sorbet. The chocolate and sprinkles are optional, but definitely add festive flair.
