Which Vegetables are Good for Grilling

Grilled veggies are great on the day you grill them and also as leftover on a panini or on some pasta. It’s an easy way to add veggies to your diet without effort. That is no effort after you grill them šŸ˜‰

Here’s a list of great veggies to use on the grill.

I Love Corn on the grill it’s easy and fast and if you have leftover you can use it in a salsa or mix it with quinoa and beans and make an afternoon salad.

  • Mushroom, Shitake, Button or Portabello mushrooms are great marinated in Canary Island Olive Oil and a bit of red wine and balsamic vinegar
  • My favorite is Eggplant mixed with the portabello and then serve it on top of a baguette with hummus. Hallelujah!!!
  • Squash and Zucchini always a favorite and so easy to cook al dente my favorite to add the leftovers to a homemade soup, why wouldn’t you!
  • Purple Onions
  • Red Onions (because they are sweet) and colored peppers of all shapes and sizes, if you are brave through some jalapenos on there!
  • Asparagus and grape tomatoesĀ  ( need a grill pan for these) or you will be ducking and weaving to keep them out of the fire.

So, tell me now, are you going to save us some of your veggies you grill? Because I totally want to put some in a breakfast wrap or on a veggie pizza or shoot can you just put a little Canary Island Olive Oil into some feta or goat cheese and serve it on a cracker with the veggies on top!!

Take good care,

Miriam and Kristi

Summer Grilling Tips

Summer is always better with good friends and good food! Miriam and I love to grill out while we are on our Summer tour. Walleye or Salmon or chicken on the grill, what’s not to love? Whether you use Gas or Charcoal remember to get that grill Hot so the meat and veggies sear when you pop them on there.Ā  Pre-heat the grill for 15-20 minutes for best results. Always clean your grill to get any leftover chars off of there before adding new food.

Keep it Healthy

Steer clear of burning or charring your meats on the grill. According to research not cooking your meat till it burns will help protect against the potential risk of cancer. Also marinating your meatĀ (try marinating is Hot Splash!!) as well as avoiding processed meat and cooking smaller portions to avoid prolonged cooking times, will help you help yourself šŸ˜‰

To avoid potential flare-ups of the flames when grilling, trim the fat off meats and take the skin off the chicken. By keeping the flames down you will reduce the risk of charring. If all else fails to keep a squirt bottle nearby to tame the flame.

Of course, don’t forget adding fruit and veggies to your BBQ, Miriam loves grilling pineapple and peaches to add to a big salad drizzled with Splash.Ā  Now you got your greens you’re good to go!
