Grilled Brussel Sprouts w Tahini Yogurt Sauce

I cooked a really nice, summery, BBQ dinner for my husband and I (and baby!) Saturday night, and these Grilled Brussel Sprouts from my VBQ Cookbook were on the menu. We topped these with a Tahini Yogurt sauce which was the perfect combination.

Also on the menu: grilled corn on the cobb, kale cesar salad, baked beans (recipe coming this week), & grilled bbq tempeh (recipe also coming this week!) Why is grilling the best thing ever?! ❤
