ebook cover w jerry smaller.jpgJust in time for summer season, the following is adapted from my first in a series of e-books that I plan to offer this year! In this book, we take a sneaky detour outside to the family BBQ, the center of all things yummy and historically not-so-good-for-you meals. In the warm weather months, I loosen my sneaky mask to reveal the abundance of fresh, seasonal, mouth-watering ingredients, simple to make and enjoy with family and friends. When I think about summer, I think BBQ and the smell of juicy burgers on the grill, the taste of fresh local peaches, corn, and tomatoes, icy refreshing strawberry slushies, and of course, my sneaky dipping sauces!
I never had the courage to take my sneaky wand outside and tackle what had traditionally been known as “the man’s kitchen,” the outdoor BBQ grill! As a result, I’m happy to bring you 15 all-new delicious and healthy meals you can share with your family and friends (and not feel guilty the next day) - and best of all, you never have to turn on the oven!

STRAWBERRY LIME SLUSHY
I recently asked my Facebook fans what flavor they wanted for a healthier “Slurpee” or “Icee” copycat recipe – strawberry lime won hands down, so here it is – equally as refreshing, delicious and fun, without all the artificial color, sweeteners and chemicals!

slushy ebook smaller 3.jpgMakes 3 servings 
2 tablespoons pomegranate or cranberry juice
Juice of one lime (about 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice)
2 tablespoons sugar, ideally raw
2 cups fresh, sliced strawberries
3 to 4 cups ice cubes

Fill blender or food processor with pomegranate (or cranberry) and lime juices, first, then sugar, strawberries, and ice. Blend or puree until thick and smooth, stopping to mix contents and push ice to bottom, if needed.
Serve in a tall glass with a straw.


SNEAKY GREEK GRILLED PIZZA
Bring the taste of the Mediterranean into your backyard with this Greek-inspired grilled pizza. Convert your outdoor grill to a high-heat pizza oven simply by closing the lid! Pocketless pita bread makes the perfect-sized ready-made pizza crust (use whole grain, if available).

Diverging from my usual puree of cauliflower, now we’re going to simply “rice” raw cauliflower and sprinkle it in with flavorful feta cheese – the vitamin-rich cauliflower crumbles will disappear, so no one will know!greek pizza sm2.jpgMakes 4 Personal Pizzas
4 pocketless “Greek-style” pita breads
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 cup raw cauliflower florets
4 ounces feta cheese, about 1 cup crumbled
1 teaspoon dried oregano (or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano)
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
24 kalamata olives, sliced in half and pitted
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat an outdoor grill to medium (or inside oven to 400 degrees) and take out a pizza stone or large baking sheet.

“Rice” the cauliflower by pulsing the raw florets in a food processor until they resemble rice or crumbles (not pureed).

In a mixing bowl, combine the riced cauliflower together with feta, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, oregano, tomatoes, olives, and a few turns of freshly ground black pepper. Place pitas on pizza stone or large baking sheet and brush with the remaining olive oil.

Top pitas with the feta mixture, divided evenly among 4 crusts. Transfer onto the grill (or oven), close grill cover, and cook for about 10 to 12 minutes or crust is golden and cheese is slightly melted. Remove from heat and serve – can also be eaten folded in half like a soft taco.

Tip to Make More Kid-Friendly: use the pitas as crust, but substitute kids’ favorite pasta or pizza sauce mixed with some Sneaky Chef Orange Puree and/or White Puree. Top with favorite cheese and grill as above.
