Cooking outside, or cooking with fire should result in so much more than the usual parade of burnt bangers, burgers, and garishly coloured drumsticks. For a gorgeous gluten-friendly BBQ, you can create a muddled-up mezze using food inspired by the Middle East, North Africa, and Korea. Instead of bread-heavy burgers, make a selection of Middle Eastern style koftas, skip the bread and serve with rainbow coloured summer dips and salads. Marinate turkey, or chicken breast in Turkish pepper paste or Korean Gochung paste and cook on skewers. Serve with an Asian Kimchi Slaw. or a nut and  plum Tabbouleh. Summer offers so much in the way of fresh produce. Get on trend and offer more veggie and plant- based foods. Let fruit and vegetables take on a starring role. Chargrilled baby aubergines are delicious drizzled with pomegranate syrup and dusted with Dukkah Spice. Peach and Haloumi kebabs make perfect small bites, a lovely combination of salty and sweet. For a show-stopping crowd pleaser, try this grilled Cauliflower recipe. The cauliflower is marinated in a Turkish pepper paste, dressed with tahini- turmeric dressing, and then garnished with a mix of, nuts, herbs and seeds. Show-stopping- Cauliflower.

Gram flour, also known as chickpea flour, is available in health food shops, Asian and ethnic shops, and many supermarkets. Literally made from ground chic peas, it is high in protein and fibre, low in fat, and is naturally gluten free. To make a Veganuary inspired pizza, top your base with cashew cheese or your favourite plant- based cheese and then add your toppings. I top mine with a courgette Mac ’n’ cheese and pulled jackfruit, but a simple spinach and tomato topping works just as well. If vegan is not your thing, you can top with cheese and your favourite pizza toppings. Feta, marinated kale, and mushroom is a great choice for a winter option. Perfect served with a green salad or slaw and a glass of Read more
