Is it a little boring? Sure. Does it get the job done? It most definitely does! At Mighty Flame Propane Cylinder Exchange, we believe that enjoying healthy food can be easy and flavorful. That’s why in today’s post, we’d like to highlight a handful of easy-to-make grilling ideas that focus on being healthy and huge on flavor.
If you’re wondering what to grill tonight, we have you covered. Keep reading to see just how easy healthy grilling can be thanks to these amazing (and amazingly easy) grilling ideas.
Grilled Beef Salad
Ree Drummond, better known as The Pioneer Woman, is the creator of this amazing recipe. The name of the recipe could probably use changing; after all, “grilled beef salad” doesn’t really do this one justice. Its name makes it sound bland, but the good news is that it’s anything but.
It all starts with a two pound London broil and a mixture of olive oil, garlic, mustard, and thyme as a marinade. The recipe mentions that it can be marinated in as little as 20 minutes or as long as overnight, but our suggestion is to marinate it and throw it in the fridge first thing in the morning to ensure that it’s ready to go for dinner at night. 8-10 hours seems to be the sweet spot. The recipe also mentions heating a grill pan to cook the London broil, but being a propane tank supplier, our suggestion is to throw it on an actual grill to experience a night-and-day difference.
From there, you can follow the recipe exactly when it comes to grilling the beef and preparing the salad. It even mentions that to serve, you should “slice the beef thinly against the grain” and “place a pile of salad on a big platter and drape the meat over the salad.” Trust us when we say that the end result is a huge win. Salad and lean beef is healthy and this recipe is also incredibly delicious! One reviewer even notes that this dish is “the best way to lose weight on yummy food” and that she and her husband “love the simplicity and huge taste.”
Grilled Tuna with Grilled Papaya, Cucumber, and Mint
There’s a reason that Wolfgang Puck is known for being one of the best chefs in the world and this recipe is among his best, in our humble opinion. As a matter of fact, the only things you’ll find that you might not think of as healthy are sugar and soy sauce, but even then, the recipe only calls for one teaspoon and one tablespoon, respectively.
The combination of grilled tuna with papaya, cucumber, and mint is both light and refreshing, making it ideal for those looking for easy grilling recipes that don’t sacrifice flavor, while also remaining healthy.
One reviewer says that this meal is “very tasty,” the recipe is “very well explained,” and the end result is “refreshing, different, and great for summer.” As you might know, the official first day of summer is now just over a month away, but with temperatures on the rise, many places across the country are experiencing beautiful weather. Memorial Day is just around the corner as well, so whether you’re taking it easy or having friends and family over for a barbecue, this recipe might just make a perfect addition to the menu.
Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Grilled Mushroom Vinaigrette
This recipe comes from the brilliant culinary mind of Michael Chiarello. We know what some of you are already thinking: “can it really be healthy if it involves bread?” We’ll leave that decision up to you, but we’re of the opinion that following the all-things-in-moderation mindset can be freeing, allowing you to enjoy a bit of bread from time to time. Plus, the recipe calls for individual mini ciabatta loaves which is a much better option than an entire loaf of white bread, if you ask us. The other ingredients will no doubt check out for even the most health conscious, making this a great option all around.
This recipe originally came from the show Easy Entertaining, and Chiarello notes that it’s a dish that packs and travels extremely well, making it easy to take for a picnic.
One reviewer in particular notes that the “recipe is easy and delicious,” while another says that they were surprised by how “very easy and quick” it was to make. At the end of the day, that’s what this is all about, and we believe that the combination of slightly crispy bread, wonderfully-seasoned chicken, and freshly grilled mushrooms comes together perfectly into a great meal that’s perfect for pretty much any occasion.
