Healthy BBQ

Hey Veggies. Do you miss a good burger for your summer BBQ?

One of the things I miss out here in Spain is having a burger during one of the many BBQs we host or attend. So, I'm going to experiment different BBQ options and add them here for anyone else who is missing good BBQ ideas. FeedsMySoul by feeding my body with good, nutritious foods.  Please feel free to add your suggestions in the comments. I may try some (testing purposes) and then showcase them on here and credit you.
