March Contest Category: Veggies!

Everyone knows that grilled meats are the star of the show, but it’s important not to forget that your MAK grill is capable of cooking up all sorts of other non-meat related delicacies. Grilled veggies make the perfect side dish or even main course (for all those vegetarians out there).

Also, for those who are more religious, we know that lent starts on March 6th and also requires cutting meat out of your diet. In order to allow those people to participate and simply because vegetables are the bomb, we’ve decided to dedicate this month to a different food group!
