Finally Some Summer Grilling

It's been unseasonably cool here this summer. You may note in the photo there are only 2 cherry tomatoes. That is exactly how many ripe tomatoes I have been able to pick so far this summer. It's been a very disappointing growing season.

We finally had a hot day, so I decided to take the quick and easy way out for dinner and grill it. I have made tempeh various ways. I enjoy it, but the kids never really cared for it. We are not big sweet and sour fans, they dislike soy sauce. This time I decided to marinate it in the same thing I use for the grilled veggies and they loved it. So did I. This will now be my go-to recipe for tempeh. Here's the simple marinade.

Marinade for Grilled Tempeh and Veggies
1/3 c. olive oil
1/3 c. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried mustard
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced


For dessert I grilled up these lovely peaches and plums with a drizzle of honey.
