Raise the steaks!
The heat is on, but summer barbecues don’t have to be full-on meat fests. For a healthier, plant-plentiful sizzle, try the following dietitian-approved ideas.
➜ Swap traditional snags for homemade skewers layered with skinless chicken cubes, red onion wedges and yellow and red capsicum strips.
➜ Bring colour onto your plate with barbecued corn cobs, charred asparagus spears and thickly sliced grilled eggplant.
➜ Instead of snags, chuck a tuna steak on the barbie for some lean protein and healthy fish oil.
➜ Try meat-free options such as marinated firm tofu cubes on skewers or vegetarian patties made with chickpeas or lentils.
