This is a great book to help vegetarians get past the standard packaged meatless burgers and enjoy the grill as an everyday tool for summer meal planning. The author offers a variety of recipes which draw upon many ethnic cuisines including Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Mexican, and Italian. The section on wraps provides several ways to prepare flavorful, healthy, vegetables and beans. The book also offers a number of innovative ways to prepare tofu which I look forward to trying.
Equally important to the recipes is the book's discussions on grilling how-to and equipment recommendations. After finding this book, I am ready to switch from charcoal to gas so we can grill everyday.

This book is fantastically thorough about its subject. From basic information about grills/barbeques the author goes on to provide 200 amazing recipes, covering just about everything.
There's a table showing you how to grill specific veggies, great boxes with all sorts of tips and hints plus a variety of dressings and marinades to spice up your own creations.
As for the recipes themselves, how about Cheese Quesadillas with Grilled Peppers, Black Bean Mushrooms Burgers or Vegetarian Fajitas with Chipotle Sour Cream? There are also lots of ways to use your grill to enhance other dishes, such as for soups, breads and pastas.
An all-round excellent book.
