Just wanted to let you know that this sweet and spicy grilled Thai Beef Salad is sponsored by my friends over at DOLE®!

This Thai Steak Salad is an easy, 15 minute dinner that even picky eaters will love! Spicy, sweet and packed with protein and fiber to keep you full!

PIN Grilled Thai Beef Salad

Spice! Spice! Baby!

Do do do do do do do do do dooooo.

Don’t even want to tell you how long it took me to count the “dos.” Might have even had to watch a Youtube video.

While this Thai steak salad may not have its OWN little theme song or jingle yet, my salad spidey-senses are tingling and telling me that soon? IT WILL.

Because when food is:

  1. Delicious
  2. So easy to make you could (almost) do it with your eyes close <– do not recommend cutting mango or steak with your eyes closed just FYI. Be safe internet friends.
  3. Nutritious

Why would it NOT have its own theme song? It’s just a combination of facts and logic folks.

This FILLING, heart and super-fresh salad is a mish mash of really tasty things that you are going to like and is LOADED with goods. I don’t know about you, but if there is more lettuce than there is “stuff” in a salad I’m just like “okay, no. Try again. Come back later” and I end up eating homemade cookie dough ice cream cake instead.

But T-H-I-S Thai beef salad recipe? It’s piled HIGH with protein-packed edamame beans, tender black beans, chewy red rice and crispy sesame seeds! Then there are chunks of creamy avocado, juicy steak with punchy ginger and salty soy sauce.

All you gotta do is marinade some steak, grill it up and then toss it with the DOLE® Bountiful Sweet Thai kit, add in your mango and avocado and you are ready to rock-and-roll your taste buds RIGHT OFF your head because this salad is just so dang good.

This Miso Lemon Tahini Dressing Recipe is an easy, creamy dressing that is big on taste and is SO easy to make! Garlicky, sweet, tangy and so addicting!

PIN Miso Lemon Tahini Dressing Recipe

Honestly, did not even think about posting this tahini salad dressing recipe.

Which is weird because, liiiike, I eat it almost E’RYDAY. For real.

It’s like I’m too busy making crazy things like paleo chocolate muffins with tahini  that I forget to share really simple, REALLY versatile kind of recipes. And the kind of recipes that I always have in my fridge.

And this garlic tahini sauce is THAT. As soon as I run even the teeny, tiniest bit low on it, BAM I blend up another batch.

It is that good my friends. It’s good on a chicken cobb salad for lunch, drizzled on tahini maple roasted sweet potatoes for dinner and I’ve even drizzled it on strawberries for dessert. Which was sort of weird but also strangely addicting?

I know. I’m a freak.

The secret is in the sauce.  No, but literally. The secret IN the sauce is white miso paste. I told you in the miso glazed salmon that I was having a moment with miso and ya’ll know that I’m always having a moment with tahini, so putting the two together? IT MADE SENSE.

I can’t lie though. The idea was first sparked in my brain when I made this maple-miso dressing. But then I decided to change almost all the ingredients when I had the idea to make it a little more savory and add A LOT of roasted garlic.

Yes, my internet friends, this miso lemon tahini dressing recipe DOES call for a WHOLE head of roasted garlic.  Mostly because a. I really like garlic but also partly because b. I am trying to ward off the vampires.

Not actually. But maybe.

If you are not garlic obsessed, you can totally use as many cloves as you want – just add a few as you blend to taste! Do not be surprised if you end up using the whole head though because it just adds so much flavor to this ultra-creamy and super luscious, savory and UMAMI packed vegan tahini dressing.

Where can you find tahini?

Because tahini is super popular right now, I have no problem finding mine in the “international aisle” at any grocery store. The only place I’ve yet to find it is at Walmart, which is sort of weird.

You may also need to look at a Mediterranean grocery store OR just buy it on Amazon!

How to make tahini dressing

This is honestly the easiest salad dressing you will ever make!

  1. Rub oil into your head of garlic and roast for 40-60 minutes at 400 degrees until soft and tender.
  2. Add the garlic cloves into a high-powered blender
  3. Add ALL the other ingredients and blend on HIGH
  4. Stop and scrape down the sides and blend again until smooth and creamy!

DONE! So darn easy.

How to store Tahini dressing

I store my dressing in an air-tight mason jar in my refrigerator. I’ve had it stay good for 2-3 weeks if you store it properly!

Spoiler alert: you won’t need to store it that long because it’s gonna be gone just as fast as you make it.

These soft and chewy low carb keto no bake cookies are sugar, gluten and dairy free but not taste free! Only 6 ingredients and super simple to make!

Pin Sugar Free Low Carb Keto No Bake Cookies

It is hot! Hot! Hot!

I don’t know about you, but I’m just about melted onto my couch these hot Summer days and pretty much constantly dreaming of cookies because cookies, my internet friend, make every situation of your life just THAT much more bearable.

But, alas, cookies also come with the not-so-enticing requirement to turn on your oven, heat your whole house and make the whole melting situation that we are finding ourselves in that MUCH WORSE.

Unless you are the genius people that I know you are, and you make sugar free NO BAKE cookies!

You’re probably thinking I’m going to pull a fast one on you and just give you another spin on an oatmeal no bake cookie like I did with the  vegan gluten free oatmeal no bake cookies AND no bake white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, but then you would be wrong.

Some days I just feel like making something I know will work, like using oatmeal in cookies that require no baking, but SOME DAYS I feel like getting crazy and wizard-like in the kitchen to see what kinds of things I can put together to see if they will actually, liiike, taste good and stuff.

I figured almond flour works for keto baking, so what not keto NO BAKING and here we are with low carb no bake cookies.

That are pretty much one of the most simple keto desserts you will ever make because they only have 6 pantry-essential kind of ingredients that you probably already have. Anddddd do not require melting you to turn on the oven and further the melting situation.

They’re also ripping one from the homemade paleo almond joy bars playbook because they have all the same flavor profiles of your favorite sweet treat:

  • Creamy dreamy almond butter
  • Almond flour for a double-dose of nutty almond goodness
  • Slightly melty, slightly crispy sugar free chocolate chips
  • Crispy coconut flecks that will make your inner texture freak VRY VRY excited

Coconut, almond and chocolate is a SERIOUS flavor triple threat and you are going to know what I mean the very second your mouth munches through chewy-crispy-crunchy sugar free low carb keto no bake cookies.

See also: they’re BUTTERY.  Do not omit the butter because it adds flavor AND keeps them nice and soft and pretty much perfect. ßYou can totally use dairy free butter if you want these to be vegan though!

What are keto sweeteners?

Typically, honey is used in no bake cookies as a binder but, because honey is not keto or low carb, we’re using almond butter instead.  Keto sweeteners include things like monkfruit, erythritol and stevia.

My go-to is monkfruit that is cut with erythritol but something that is more erythritol forward will probably work too. I would not recommend stevia as it could leave these cookies tasting quite bitter!

Whether you eat them for a snack or COMMIT and eat them for breakfast, these chewy little no-bake gems are going to be getting you through the Summer.

I also shared this keto no bake cookies recipe on Food Fanatic, so be sure to check it out there!

Grilled cauliflower steak is an easy, healthy and naturally gluten free and vegan Summer meal that everyone will love! The romesco sauce is addicting!

PIN Grilled Cauliflower Steak

We JUST had keto steak and now we have a cauliflower steak recipe.

I actually tested BOTH of those recipes in the same week, and we ate them for dinner together multiple nights in a row.  It was pretty much the week of steak here in the FFF HQ.

Insider Tip: this is how I also learned that this romesco sauce is RLY RLY good on ACTUAL grilled steak.  Also good on chicken, roasted veggies, eggs and pretty much anything on planet Earth because it is just THAT YUMMY.

But, we’ll get to that. First, we gotta talk about the vegetal version of the steak situation that we find ourselves in.

You’ve probably seen roasted cauliflower steaks popping up all over your Pinterest feeds because they are SUPER trendy right now. They’re essentially just large slabs of cauliflower that are cooked, instead of cutting them up into littles bites.

BUT “Large slab of cauliflower” just doesn’t have the same ring to it as “cauliflower steak” ya know?

How to Cut Cauliflower Steaks
  1. Chose a BIG head of cauliflower as this makes them much easier to slice!
  2. Remove the outer leaves and trim the stem end so the cauliflower sits flat
  3. Hold the cauliflower with it’s base on the cutting board and use a VERY sharp knife to cut though the center of the cauliflower length-wise.
  4. Cut each half into two 1-inch thick slices!

You can save the rest for roasting or to make cauliflower tater tots, mock cauliflower potato salad or cauliflower rice!

Because it’s the Summer I thought it would be fun and tasty and magical to add a little smoky, charry flavor because there are few things in life that do not get better grilled and cauliflower steaks are not one of them.

How to Grill Cauliflower Steaks
  1. Once you’ve sliced them into steaks, brush them with olive oil, lemon juice and salt and heat your grill to medium heat.
  2. Cook them for about 8-10 minutes per side. You want deep grill marks and they should be fork tender!

Now you’re left with slabby pieces of cauliflower that our trendy selves are calling grilled cauliflower steaks, but they need a little pizzazz and flavor MAGIC.

Enter: romesco sauce.

Aka: the best dang sauce in all the land that you will want to eat with a spoon and put on all the things I listed earlier PLUS SOME.

It’s just this perfect combination of toasty almonds, ripe, juicy tomatoes, vinegary roasted peppers and tangy lemon juice with spicy bursts of cumin that dance across your tongue and I am INTO IT. <– Which tells me that you will be falling into a romesco romance too.

It’s bright and vibrant and adds this layer of flavor to otherwise not-so-exciting cauliflower and is actually giving us the right to be fancy and call these “steaks” instead of the “slabs of cauliflower” that we know they truly are.

Seriously. Make a double batch.

You’re welcome.

Then let it get all up in cauliflowers BUSINESS and they’ll dance right on down into your actually-loving-veggies-right-now-belly.

Grilled cauliflower steak is an easy, healthy and naturally gluten free and vegan Summer meal that everyone will love! The romesco sauce is addicting!

  • 1 Large head of cauliflower, (sliced lengthwise through the core into 4 'steaks')
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • Sea salt
For the Romesco Sauce:
  • 1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 A large tomato on the vine, (chopped)
  • 1/2 Cup Thinly sliced roasted red peppers, (packed)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Garlic, (minced)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cumin
  • Sliced parsley, (for garnish)
  1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spread the almonds onto a small baking sheet and bake until lightly golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Watch them closely as they burn fast. Set aside. Pre heat your grill to medium heat.

  2. Place the cauliflower steaks on a cutting board and mix the lemon juice and oil together in a small bowl. Rub half of the oil mixture all over the tops of the cauliflower and sprinkle with salt.

  3. Place the cauliflower "steaks" on the grill, oil side down and cook until they are charred and begin to soften, about 8-9 minutes. Then, rub the rest of the oil mixture on top of the "steaks" and flip. Cook until soft and fork tender, about another 8-10 minutes.

  4. While the cauliflower cooks, place the 1/2 tomato into a SMALL food processor (mine is 3 cups) and process until broken down and smooth*.

  5. Add all the other sauce ingredients in, including the toasted almonds, and process until smooth and creamy.

  6. Serve the sauce over the cauliflower and garnish with parsley.

  7. DEVOUR!

*Don’t try to mix everything without breaking down the tomato first – it doesn’t work well and you will have chunky tomato.

This Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower is an easy recipe that even picky kids will love! Gluten free and vegan option and so crispy and crunchy too!

PIN Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower

Are you still eating buffalo foods in the Summer?

Please say yes.

I have this feeling that you’re looking at me through the screen, shaking your head and thinking “liiike, have you gone mental Taylor? Why would we eat spicy-mouth-on-fire-food when our bodies are already on fire because – hello- 100-degree weather in JULY?”

I know, I KNOW. We typically eat things like healthy buffalo chicken dip or paleo buffalo chicken casserole around football season, but can we just start a little early with this air fried buffalo cauliflower? Isn’t football season sort of soon?

I truly know nothing of these sporting seasons, so this is really just a hopeful guess.

But, I meannn, they’re crispy and crunchy and spicy and flavorful and they’re the kind of vegetables that both you, your veggie hating husband AND your kids will actually, you know, ENJOY eating sooo I’m pretty sure that they’re good for any time of the year right?

Right. I knew you would come around. <– Just blast your AC and all will be well.

How to make air fryer buffalo cauliflower

The air fried cauliflower goes down like this:

  1. Cut your cauliflower into large florets! We’re trying to make these kind of like fried cauliflower WINGS – so you want them to be good sized, like a chicken wing.
  2. Melt butter and mix it with buffalo sauce. Pour it all over the cauliflower and refrigerate at least an hour. This sounds silly but I tried making these without doing so and they had a lot less buffalo flavor! It’s all in the marinade.
  3. Melt the rest of the butter and combine with the hot sauce. Pour over the cauliflower.
  4. Dip the cauliflower into panko – not breadcrumbs.
  5. Cook in the air fryer until crispy, about 17-20 minutes!
  6. Dip into ranch, blue cheese sauce or just eat them as is!

Just like the cauliflower tater tots, cauliflower mashed potatoes and low carb mock cauliflower potato salad, I am not going to lie to you and tell you that you cannot tell the difference between these cauliflower bites and chicken wings.

Let’s be realistic people, shall we? Cauliflower and fried chicken and two VERY different things.

B-U-T they are super satisfying and a great way to get any veggie hating human to not hate veggies just a LITTLE bit less.

Also, if you don’t love buffalo foods, you might RLY RLY like these. Buffalo flavoring using isn’t REALLY my jam, but I actually was not mad about having to test these over and over to figure out the perfect flavor and crispy-crunchiness.

How to make Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower gluten free

Since almost everything in this recipe is naturally gluten free, you can use gluten free panko to make these if needed. I will say I have made them both ways and using non gluten free panko is a LITTLE crispier. BUT it’s not that noticeable!

How to make these vegan

You can simple use vegan butter and voila! Vegan cauliflower wings!

Breaded vegetables. 

Because what isn’t better with carbs?

This Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower is an easy recipe that even picky kids will love! Gluten free and vegan option and so crispy and crunchy too!

  • 5 Tbsp Buffalo sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Unsalted butter ((vegan if needed))
  • 3 Cups Cauliflower, (cut into 1 1/2 inch thick florets (268g))
  • Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Panko ((GF if needed))
  • Cooking spray
  1. Melt 1/2 Tbsp of the butter and mix it with 3 Tbsp of the buffalo sauce. Pour over the cauliflower and stir until well covered (I use my hands as it's easier.) Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to overnight.

  2. Once marinated, melt the rest of the butter and mix with the buffalo sauce. Pour over the cauliflower and stir until coated. Season with salt.

  3. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Spread the panko into a shallow, rimmed plate. Pick each cauliflower up by the steam and rolls the tops of each floret into the panko. Place onto the mesh basket of the air fryer. Repeat with remaining florets.

  4. Spray the tops of the florets with cooking spray and cook until the cauliflower is fork tender and the tops and crisp and golden, about 17-21 minutes.

  5. Serve with ranch or bleu cheese dip (or nothing!) and DEVOUR!

If you want to double this, you may have to do two batches, depending on the size of your air fryer. You don’t want the cauliflower touching as they cook or they won’t get crunchy

This keto steak recipe is topped with garlic butter mushrooms and grilled to perfection! A low carb, paleo and whole30 healthy Summer dinner!

PIN Keto Steak with Garlic Butter Mushrooms

Among the sea of keto cucumber salads and grilled avocado recipes, I finally bring you some straight-up husband approved (and requested!) Summer eats.

Not that Mr.FFF doesn’t like those recipes, but he IS from Nebraska.

He likes some keto steak recipes a WHOLE lot more than cucumbers and fru-fru, fancy salad dressings, you know?

Every once in awhile I throw him a bone. Like when he was going through his Cajun phase and we ate Cajun Instant Pot chili for him. And now we’re having a keto steak dinner. Gold star wife points for me? I am going with YES.

I’m going to just be straight up with you. No beating around the bush. I almost NEVER like mushrooms. There is a few instanced when I like them…and this is still not one of them.

Bet you thought I was going to tell you how these mushrooms changed my opinion and now I want to eat mushrooms forever and ever the end, didn’t you?  Told ya, keeping it real. 😎

BUT, Mr. FFF loves mushrooms, especially on steak. So, I tried adding them for him and he thought I should definitely keep them as part of the recipe. But, I did not eat them. So now you know that this recipe works for mushroom lovers or NON mushroom lovers. Just push that fungus to the side and GO TO TOWN on your juicy, garlic-buttery steak and be VERY VERY happy about summer food.

How long to cook steak?

You want to grill you steak until golden brown and slightly charred, which is about 4 to 5 minutes. Then you’ll flip it over and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes for medium rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F) 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) OR 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F. ) This is for steaks that are about 1 1/2 inches thick.  I personally like mine medium rare!  

How to make steak tender

There are many ways to make steak tender but my top 3 are:

  1. Bring the meat up to room temperature before placing it on the grill.
  2. Salt the steak JUST before putting it on the grill. If you let salt sit on the meat for too long before cooking, it can dry it out and toughen it.
  3. Once it’s cooked, cover and let it rest for at least 5 minutes, but preferably 10. This looks in the juices!

What to serve with keto steak?

You could serve so many options with this recipe since it’s super simple! But some of my favs are:

Any way you slice it, this easy-peasy, garlicky steak is going to be a summer dinner sensation.

Unless you don’t let it rest first. 😉

This keto steak recipe is topped with garlic butter mushrooms and grilled to perfection! A low carb, paleo and whole30 healthy Summer dinner!

  • 1 Lb Grass-fed Top Sirloin Steak ((about 1 1/2 inches thick))
  • 4 tsp Ghee, (softened to room temperature)
  • 1 tsp Fresh garlic, (minced)
  • Sea salt
For the mushrooms:
  • 2 Cups White mushrooms, (thinly sliced)
  • 2 tsp Ghee, (melted)
  • 1 tsp Fresh garlic, (minced)
  • Sea salt
  1. Pre-heat your grill to high heat

  2. Pat the steak dry with a paper towel. In a small bowl, combine the ghee and garlic (for the steak) and spread half of it all over one side of the steak. Sprinkle with salt.

  3. When the grill is hot place the steak on it, butter side down and cook for 4-5 minutes, until charred*. Rub the remaining ghee mixture all over the top side, flip and cook until desired done-ness. Remove from heat, cover and let rest while the mushrooms cook.

  4. Combine the mushrooms, melted ghee, garlic and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Place two layers of tinfoil on top of each other (shiny side inwards) and place the mushrooms in the center in one layer. Wrap the sides up tightly to make a packet.

  5. Place the mushrooms onto the grill, so the folds of the packet are facing up and grill 5 minutes. Flip and grill another 4-5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender,

  6. Serve the mushrooms over the steak and DEVOUR!

Cook another  3 to 5 minutes for medium rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F) 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) OR 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F. ) This is based off a steak that is 1 1/2 inches thick. It may be more or less depending how thick yours is!

Ever wondered what is intuitive eating anyway? I’m sharing what it is and how to easily start doing it today! This is something that will change your life!

PIN What is Intuitive Eating and How to Eat Intuitively

I’ve been sharing a lot about my journey through recovering from disordered eating and hypothalamic amenorrhea (when you lose your period due to low weight and/or too much exercise) on Instagram, but I haven’t shared much on here!

Except briefly with the post about a perspective shift on gluten a weeks ago.

I am going to be sharing lots more in the upcoming months, but I wanted to touch more on it today.

Learning to practice intuitive eating has been the hardest and scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life. BUT, it’s also been the most amazing, freeing and BEST thing I’ve ever done for my life.

Things that I don’t do now that I feel like I am an “intuitive eater”

  1. Think about food all the time. I used to think about it every waking second of every hour of the day. Now I only think about it a couple times a day, and that’s usually when I’m hungry
  2. Count macros. I can trust my body that, if I listen to what it is telling me it wants, it will make balanced choices most of the time. Sometimes it wants a donut and that’s cool too.
  3. Count calories. Along the same lines as above. I’ve learned that the human body is not a calculator and I don’t need the same amount of food every day. Some days I need more and some less.
  4. Write down what I am going to eat for every single meal the next day, and sometimes even a few days after, in a note on my phone. I did this for real.  Mostly because I felt so restrictive towards food.
  5. Don’t have to do “meal math.” IE: if I eat THIS now, then that means I can’t have THIS later.
  6. Make different dinners for Mr. FFF and for me because mine need to be small and “healthier.”

And the list goes on.  Now, I am not saying I am perfect at this. Some days I eat less than I probably should have and some days more. Some days I can’t figure out my hunger cues and if I am hungry or if I am full. I’m still on the journey and learning but, for the most part, I am feeling very solid in where I am at.

What is Intuitive Eating?

Now, you may have heard of this before and you may have even read the Intuitive Eating Book (which I HIGHLY recommend) BUT you may not have. In a world that is so obsessed with dieting, weight loss and being smaller, this message can get lost in “Diet Culture.”

Intuitive Eating is about making peace with food and your body. It’s about learning how to listen to your body and what it is telling you in regard to the food you eat, your hunger and fullness cues and even exercise and movement. It’s about learning to honor yourself and your needs and find acceptance for the way that God made you to be.

It is NOT a diet. It doesn’t promise weight loss.  In fact your weight will either go down, stay the same, or increase.  Mine increased, which was a very good thing. Hard. But good.

It is a lifestyle that, once practiced, leads to peace, food freedom and acceptance.

It gets rid of the restrictive behaviors around food which you may or may not be aware you have. I always thought I just really liked food which is why I thought about it all the time. Turns out, our brains are hard wired to think that we are in famine when it senses food is scarce (which could be that its sensing that you are RESTRICTING food of some sort. Doesn’t necessarily mean that you aren’t eating enough) and so it thinks about food ALL the time because it is hoping it will make you eat.

When you finally start to eat without restriction, your body feels safe and that its not in famine.  And then, you stop thinking about food.  You stop craving sugar all the time because sugar is now “on limits.” You know you can have it if you want it.  So, you begin to be able to take it or leave it instead of feeling like you have to go on this all-out crazy binge on it before you have to start avoiding it again.

The 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating

I am going to also go more in depth on these later. But the 10 principals (which are in the book) are:

  1. Reject the diet mentality
  2. Honor your hunger
  3. Make peace with food
  4. Challenge the Food Police
  5. Respect your fullness
  6. Discover the satisfaction factor
  7. Honor your feelings without using food
  8. Respect your body
  9. Exercise and feel the difference
  10. Honor your health

How to Eat Intuitively

Eating intuitively is TOUGH. Especially in a world where we are told we need to be hungry, never feel full, eat diet foods and only eat a certain number of calories.

The first step for me was to learn what I TRULY wanted to eat. So, I made a FREE starter cheat sheet!

This is a flow chart that will walk you through the questions I asked myself every time I sat down to eat, to help me determine what I TRULY wanted to eat, instead of eating based on numbers, macros, or what I thought I SHOULD want!

Just wanted to let you know that these creamy, tangy and perfect-for-Summer grilled avocados are sponsored by my friends at the Love One Today!

These smoky and creamy avocados on the grill are drizzled with a sweet and tangy feta and tahini sauce for an easy summer dinner that’s nutritious and delicious!

PIN Grilled Avocados

Simple. Summery. Fresh and AVOCADO.

Does it get better than those 4 words smushed together and put into your hungry mouth?

There is literally no bad time to eat an avocado, but it feels EXTRA right to eat them in the summer, finished with smoky grill marks and drizzled with the creamiest, tangiest and smoothest feta-tahini-lemon sauce that is about to rock your face off. For REAL.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s just press the rewind button and go back to the fact that these are GRILLED AVOCADOS. Olive oil drizzled creamy halves of green goodness that are kissed with the fiery heat of the grill.

Prediction: you will want to grill avocados forever and ever the end. You might even throw on a parka in the winter because mother nature does not stand between you and grilling your avocados.

We all know avocados are worth any kind of extreme measures because they are just so DANG GOOD. AND good for you!

Avocados are also a good source of fiber. Dietary fiber adds bulk to the diet and can help you feel fuller longer, which can increase satiety. Diets rich in healthy fiber, such as from vegetables and fruits, may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes. 

I don’t know about you, but I’m trying to figure out how to eat avocados at every meal forever and ever the end.

How to Grill Avocado

Not only are grilled avocados out-of-this-world delicious, but they are SO easy to make!

  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  2. Cut your avocado in half and remove the seed.
  3. Drizzle the halves with olive oil and salt.
  4. Grill cut side down, until nice grill marks form, about 5-6 minutes.

That’s it! Then you can eat them RIGHT out of the shell.

BUT make sure you DOUSE them in feta tahini sauce first though.  We’re not just daintily drizzling here folks.

You want to spread it on nice and thick because the tangy tahini and feta and zesty lemon combined with creamy avocado and the warmth of the grill is something I don’t even have words to describe to you.

It’s just pure Summer BLISS.

Plus, it looks ultra-fancy and would be perfect for an easy summer dinner party. But also, equally as perfect for an easy-breezy Summer weeknight dinner.

Or, a snack.

Or, even a breakfast. I told you, nothing was going to get in between you and grilled avocados.

I can already see you rolling out of bed, in your jammies, firing up the grill.

Avocados all day long I say, and I think you’re going to agree. <3

These smoky and creamy Grilled Avocados are drizzled with a sweet and tangy feta and tahini sauce for an easy summer dinner that's healthy and delicious!

  • 3 Large Fresh Avocados
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • 2 tsp Fresh lemon juice
  • Salt
For the sauce:
  • 1/4 Cup Feta cheese, (crumbled (37g))
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Tahini
  • 4 tsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 – 1 Tbsp Reduced-sodium chicken broth ((depending how thick you like your sauce))
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat your grill to medium high heat.

  2. Cut the avocados in half and remove the seeds. Peel the garlic clove and cut the top off. Rub the cut part of the garlic all over the cut side of the avocado.

  3. Mix the olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl and brush over the avocados. Sprinkle with salt.

  4. Place cut side down on the grill and cook until nice grill marks form, about 5-6 minutes.

  5. Place the feta into a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until it begins to warm and soften, about 10-15 seconds. Then, use a small food processor (mine is 3 cups) and blend all the sauce ingredients together. You'll need to stop and scrape down the sides and then start blending again to make sure everything gets smooth and creamy. Season to taste with salt.

  6. Divide the sauce between the avocados, squeeze with fresh lemon juice (optional) and scoop right out of the shell to DEVOUR!
