Summer grilling season isn't strictly for omnivores, though steaks, burgers and chicken get a ton of attention. For our fans of vegan cuisine, we've rounded up some top-rated veg-centric dishes that shine brightly after being kissed by flames outdoors. We're breaking it down, course by course, with an emphasis on creating feasts that will satisfy everyone, even the dedicated meat eater.

Salads and Appies

A brief cook time over flames brings out the natural sweet quality in so many veggies, from corn to artichokes and asparagus. Seasoned pros know to wash, but skip drying, produce shortly before cooking. The little bit of moisture that remains helps in the cooking process.
