Grilled Vegetables

Grilled Vegetables

Endless Possibilities...

We all know by now that grilling isn’t just for meats. In fact, grilling enhances the textures and flavors of just about any vegetable. Soft, juicy vegetables like squash, asparagus, peppers, and mushrooms are especially well suited for grilling because they absorb oils and seasonings so well, but just about any vegetable can be successfully grilled. Try artichokes, eggplant, garlic, onions, zucchini, tomatoes – or whatever’s in season! Serve grilled vegetables as side dishes or the focus of your meal.

A while back, we decided to turn things over to our Facebook fans for some new ideas on grilling vegetables. We posed this query, and the responses that followed are downright mouth-watering...

  • Garlic, cayenne pepper, oregano, and a little bit of water.
  • Marinate peppers in garlic, olive oil, basil & capers... then grill. Zucchini only needs a little olive oil, salt & pepper. Love to skewer asparagus, brush with oil, salt and pepper and sprinkle with Parmesan as it comes off the grill!
  • I use Simply Organic Vegetable Seasoning on everything. I like to brush veggies with coconut oil and then season with your Vegetable Seasoning. Key is doing both sides!
  • Lots of extra virgin olive oil, garlic cloves, and chopped shallots, plus whatever dried herbs mix compliments the rest of the meal -- e.g., Italian Herbs, Herbes de Provence, Fine Herbs, etc.
  • I put olive oil on mushrooms, squash, eggplant, red peppers, tomatoes, zucchini and then usually I sprinkle with salt and pepper, but I have now discovered Simply Organic BBQ Seasoning!
  • My favorite roasted veggies are sweet potatoes, zucchini, and yellow squash, with onions and mushrooms. I like to season them with a little olive oil and a little safflower oil to cut down on the burning, because we like them to be a little bit crunchy on the edges, like fries. I season them with several different varieties of seasoning, depending on the evening.
  • I frequently add fresh lemon juice and lemon pepper, or lemon juice and Tuscan seasoning, or lemon juice and fresh garlic, or lots of whole cloves.

Simply Organic Vegetable SeasoningOur certified organic Vegetable Seasoning is superb with grilled veggies. It’s a versatile combination of onion, garlic, black pepper, sea salt, cumin, bell peppers, coriander, oregano, and cilantro. It’ll add just the right flavor to whatever you put on the grill!
