I bet everyone love the smoke and flavor from the grill.
But will you still love to grill, if the news tells you that weather outside is -10 ºF / -23 ºC, with 75% chances of snow and cloudy? Chill to grill. I doubt.
What happened today was I teach my kids how to make grilled veggies without grilling at all! Thanks to Cuisinart Griddler Indoor Grill, for a job well done. (clap, clap, clap)
What I like about grilled veggies (even if it is – 10 ºF outside) is that even if you cook it half way through, you’ll never get sick. After all, veggies can be eaten raw too.
Here are the tricks that I told my kids on how to grilled veggies that I hope they’ll not forget this.
- Always use fresh vegetables and wash it properly.
- Use the best oil you have, if you have home made flavored oil, much better.
- Cut the veggies according to texture. Soft veggies should be thicker than hard ones so when you grill them, they will be evenly cooked.
- Seasoned the veggies with herbs and spices according to your World of Flavor.
- Don’t over grill it. Toss it in a stainless cold bowl to stop its cooking process. If you have a home made dressing, drizzle it on top while it is hot. This will make your grilled veggies more flavorful.
- 2 medium size eggplant
- 6 small sweet colored peppers (red and yellow)
- 1 medium sweet red onion
- 2 tbsp. flavored oil
- ½ tbsp. salt
- ¼ tbsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 1 tsp. dried basil
- For Dressing
- 1 tbsp. Dijon Mustard
- 1 tbsp. raw honey
- 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- Preheat Cuisinart Griddler at high 350 F grill setting.
- In a bowl, toss all the fresh veggies mixing all the spices and flavored oil.
- Set the grill at 425 F and slowly place the veggies in the grill pan nice and slowly.
- Grill it for 15 minutes or until the grill marks show up. Toss it back to the bowl after cooking.
- In a separate bowl, mix all the ingredients for dressing. Slowly drizzle it on top of the hot grilled veggies to absorb the flavor. Enjoy!
Did I miss something about making grilled veggies? Feel free to leave your intelligent opinion below and I will include it in my next Grill 101 with the kids. Thank you!
