Veggie Burrito with Sweet Chipotle BBQ Sauce and Cilantro and Lime Rice

025Black Beans and Rice with Cilantro at Bongos

As Spring approaches and Summer not far behind, my thoughts go to entertaining and celebrating the flavors of the season.

I’m thinking Mai Tais and Margaritas, grilled vegetables and garden fresh herbs.

This veggie burrito and cilantro and lime rice make for great al fresco dinning and go perfectly well with summer cocktails!

I love my grill and I love cooking and eating outside.

Being a vegetarian doesn’t have to mean that you don’t get play with fire anymore!

I throw everything on the grill and embrace the smokey flavors of the season on all my favorite veggie dishes.

Keeping black beans and rice, ready to go in the fridge, makes Summer dinning and entertaining easy.

Just add your main dish and and you have a gourmet meal in no time.
