I am still all in on the summer veggies that are everywhere right now and so to celebrate them I heated up to grill to let them shine.
It is still summer
Y’all I know I am so ready for cooler weather (& pumpkin spice everything) but one of the best summer things happening right now are the veggies. There are some amazing veggies happening at the farmer’s markets and grocery stores.
The zucchini is amazing, the squash is just so good, then onions are the perfect sweetness, broccolini, asparagus everywhere & the corn… y’all THE CORN! PS… more corn recipes coming, I cannot get enough.
Summer Lovin & Everything grilled!
As I was gathering all my veggies to grill I decided I was going to grill them all… even the ones I had never attempted, like green onion and broccolini. To make this fete possible I used my grill pan, you can find one here (I actually ordered this one so the rogue asparagus wouldn’t slide off next time). For the larger veggies I cut them into larger pieces to ensure they would stay on top of the grates… well at least most of them.
Cook time is different for each veggie so timing can be tricky, but knowing this I tried to cook them as best as I could. I started with the corn and then added on peppers, zucchini and squash on the grill. On the pan I did the red onion and asparagus first & then finished with the green onion and broccolini.
You could also grill eggplant, cauliflower, mushrooms or thinly sliced (par boiled) potatoes. SO MANY OPTIONS! Pair it with these chicken skewers and you have a perfect summer meal.
All about the prep
To add a little something extra to these already delicious veggies I did a little extra prep work.
After cutting the veggies I drizzled them with extra virgin olive oil, course all purpose seasoning (I use Adam’s House Rub) and a little extra salt & pepper and then a heavy drizzle of lemon juice. The lemon just adds a little extra brightness. You could also grill some lemon halves and drizzle over the top after, or in addition too.
I will be posting a grilled lemon vinaigrette in the next few days that is my new go to salad dressing so stay tuned.
Get the Grill Hot!!
