5 Tips for Grilling Veggies

Grilling seems to bring out the best in everything, and veggies are no exception. Here are 5 simple tips for perfectly grilled vegetables that are chock full ’o flavor.
  1. Toss them with oil: A light coating of oil helps your seasonings stick and prevents your veggies from drying out and from sticking to the grill. Try our Balsamic & Basil Dipping Oil + Seasoned Salt.

  2. Give ’em a short zap: Dense veggies like potatoes cook faster and better on the grill when you give them a short trip through the microwave first. Here’s a fave Grilled Herb Potato Wedges »

  3. Use a grill basket: Leave no veg ungrilled! Even small or skinny vegetables like asparagus, mushrooms and green beans can be grilled if you have a grill basket. Here’s a recipe that features a delicious splash of Bayou Bourbon Glaze. Bayou Grilled Green Beans »

  4. Grill your lettuce (for reals!): It sounds crazy, but Romaine lettuce is positively delightful on the grill, and this recipe is a great place to start: Citrus Herb Grilled Romaine Salad »

  5. Watch the heat: Most veggies are best when grilled over medium or medium-high heat. And remember this rule: a watched veggie never burns. Keep an eye out, and move those that are cooking faster to a cooler part of the grill.
This weekend, healthify your grilling adventures with a veg or two. They make a delicious side of course, but also use them as dippers, on pizza or in a sandwich.

Enjoy!
