Grilled Meat/Chicken/Fish

I love to use my grill/BBQ all summer and when the weather permits. The food tastes great and no pots and pans to clean! Win-Win! See Vegetable Chapter for grilled veggies.

Yields 4 servings


4 (4 oz. 1 inch thick) Bison Steak, Fish, Boneless Chicken  or Turkey Breast or Thigh

2 teaspoons grapeseed or avocado oil

dry herbs and/or spices of your choice

Himalayan salt

freshly ground pepper

Seasoning Suggestions:

Steak: granulated garlic & onion, black pepper, smoked paprika, smoked salt  & pepper or Moroccan spice blend

Chicken/Poultry: anything will work. Use same as steak or fish or Chinese 5 spice or Curry powder or Herbs d’ Provence or dried or fresh rosemary, garlic and lemon juice or Caribbean Jerk Sauce or marinade.

Fish: Herbs d’ Provence or dried Dill or dried Italian herbs, salt and pepper


  1. Heat grill on high for 5 minutes.
  2. Brush off grill with wire brush.
  3. Rub 1 teaspoon oil onto grill with a cotton towel.
  4. Brush meat or fish with 1 teaspoon oil on both sides.
  5. Liberally salt, pepper and season your meat/fish on both sides.
  6. Place meat/fish  onto grill over medium heat.
  7. Cook half the time on one side and half the time on the other for meat. Do not try to turn fish over on the grill or it will fall apart, so just cook skin side down or on one side.

Cooking Times:

Fish: 1 inch thick fish will take about 4 or 5 minutes per side. Cook until internal temperature is 170 degrees. If it is 1/2 inch thick cut cooking time in half.

Chicken:  Boneless breast will take 10 minutes. Boneless thighs will take about 8 minutes. Use thermometer because undercooked chicken/poultry can cause food borne illness and very serious long term illness. That said, don’t over cook it because nobody likes dry, rubber chicken!

Meat: 1 inch thick meat will vary due to how you like your meat done, but will take about 10-15 minutes total. Use a thermometer to check the temperature in the center of the thickest part. See chart below, cook for half the time on one side, turn over and cook the remaining half time.

Rare: 130 degrees

Medium rare: 138 degrees

Medium: 148 degrees

Medium well: 160

Well: 170 degrees

  1. Remove meat from heat. Cover and rest for 5 minutes to be sure you get a juicy piece of meat/fish.

If you don’t want grill marks cook on lower heat for longer and turn meat every two minutes.


Other Options:

Cooking on a Himalayan Salt Block is tasty and will not impart grill marks which can be carcinogenic. This will take 30 minutes to heat up and about double or more time to cook. Follow directions on Himalayan salt block package. Do not salt food.

Wooden Planks: soak planks for 24 hours in cold water. Get the metal holder to prolong life of your wooden planks which can be used multiple times. Cooking time will take about double or more time. The flavor imparted is worth the extra time. Cedar or maple are nice for salmon and hickory for steak. I like alder or maple for chicken and white fish. You can play around with them and find your favorites.

Fine cooking stores or go online to find salt blocks and wooden planks. Some butcher counters at high end grocery stores have the wooden planks.


Grilled or Broiled Peaches

½ organic peach per person, washed, pitted and cut in half

Dressing: Place all ingredients in a Mason jar, close and shake until well combined.

¼ cup White Peach Balsamic Vinegar

1/3 cup Blood Orange Olive Oil

Preheat oven to broil. Place peaches in a glass baking dish cut side down. Pour half the dressing over the peaches, turn them over and spoon dressing over each peach. Turn oven on to broiler and place under broiler or on a BBQ grill over medium heat. Broil or grill 12 minutes. Remove from broiler and pour remaining half of dressing over peaches. Serve in a bowl with a scoop of Vanilla Ice “Cream”.

Vegan Vanilla Bean “Ice Cream”

Cold, smooth and creamy with the exotic flavor of vanilla bean! Make Ice  Who doesn’t love a Hot Fudge Sundae? Pour Chocolate Ganache over a scoop of Ice Cream and enjoy! Want a Banana Split? Add a fresh banana, Raspberry Sauce and Chocolate Ganache! Yummy! It’s worth buying an ice cream maker, but you don’t have to!

Yields: 1 quart

Special Equipment: Food Processor or blender, ice cream maker is optional

2 14 oz. cans regular coconut milk(no gums added), chilled or 28oz. homemade cashew milk

½ cup coconut palm nectar or local raw honey*or 1 tsp. liquid stevia or 1/4 cup Jungle Sweet

1 Tablespoon real gluten-free vanilla extract or seeds of 2 vanilla beans, scraped

  1. Cut vanilla beans in half lengthwise, scrape the inside of the beans with the back of a knife to remove the seeds.
  2. Blend all ingredients in a blender on low speed or whisk in a bowl just until combined.

Method 1

  1. Pour into popsicle maker and freeze or use an ice cream maker an follow manufacture’s directions.

Method 2

  1. Pour into a glass 8×8 container and cover with a lid.
  2. Freeze until solid, approximately 6 hours.
  3. Cut into 9 squares(3×3) with an ice pick or sharp 6 inch knife. Be careful please.
  4. put 1/2 the squares into a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  5. Add the remaining 1/2 and blend until smooth and the texture of soft serve ice cream.
  6. Either eat immediately or freeze in a plastic or glass container.

*You can add in any toppings you like by folding them in at the end after it is soft serve consistency.

Add in options: gluten-free brownie bites, biscotti pieces, vegan cookie dough, nut butter, marshmallows, nuts, chocolate fudge ganache(see Table of Contents for recipe) swirl this in or pour over top if enjoying soft serve ice cream.

*For lavender use lavender honey, it’s amazing!

  1. hi…im looking for dairy free and also cane sugar free recipes for my one year old daughter as she has an intolorance to both…cheers

    • Hi Kim,

      You can use my cookbook when she starts eating solid foods. Until then I would buy a good baby food cookbook or just make organic pureed vegetables for her. If she has a lot of food allergies, I urge you to get her under the care of a good Naturopathic Doctor who has a 4 year degree in it. If you are from Australia contact Dr. Rodney Ford in New Zealand. He is the best and a leading expert on gluten and food allergies.

  2. I thought eating gluten free meant no flour or anything with wheat/gluten, but your chili recipe has flour and also beer in it which both contain wheat/gluten??

  3. Hi Lauren,
    Mu husband and I met you and bought your book at the Campbell Farmers Mkt. this past Sunday.
    Since we’re fast approaching Thanksgiving day I’m wondering if you have a recipe for gluten free stuffing that’s worth making. In fact, any Thanksgiving dish recipes would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Kathleen

    • Kathleen,
      Yes, there are two stuffing recipes in my cookbook-cornbread or regular that can be made with Gluten free bread-see pages110, 117. I made the cornbread stuffing in a cooking class I taught yesterday and everyone loved it. This week I will be posting a guide for menu planning for Thanksgiving so everyone can enjoy the holiday without being overwhelmed or overworked on T-day! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving, Lauren Hoover
