Grilled Vegetables

Grilled veg.  One of the most simple and satisfying summer meals you can make.  There isn’t much you can’t grill in the way of fresh vegetables. It’s perfect for guests who may have any kind of food sensitivity.  You are able to avoid gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, nuts, etc… The vegetables taste great “as is” when they come off the grill or you may drizzle on a vinaigrette before serving. Here are some of the FTY offerings that made it onto my grill last night.

Grilling – Part 2

This week, as promised, I’ll be sharing some recipes for the grill.  Before you grill, make sure it is clean. For a gas grill, turn all burners to high and heat with lid down until very hot, about 10 minutes. Scrape grate clean with a grill brush.  For a charcoal grill, build fire and keep the lid on for 10-15 minutes, then scrape.  Dip a wad of paper towels in oil; holding wad with tongs, wipe cooking grate.  Both the scraping and the oiling will prevent your food from sticking to the grill.
