Grilled Cauliflower Steak with Israeli Couscous and Olives

Summer means steak on the grill, even if you are going meatless. Wrapping cauliflower rubbed with harissa (a North African spiced chile paste) in foil before you grill it helps it become tender quickly, but it still chars nicely right through the foil.

Grilled Shiitake and Tofu Banh Mi

A banh mi, the popular Vietnamese hero sandwich, with its tangy cucumber salad and spicy mayonnaise, is generally piled high with meat or fish. Sub in meaty shiitakes and tofu, slathered with a hoisin marinade, to make it banh-meatless. Pressing the liquid out of the tofu firms it up and keeps it from sticking to the grill.
