Backyard barbecues are known for juicy pork slabs, tender beef roasts and fall-off-the-bone ribs. However, just as much as these are delicious, you should also consider serving veggies to give the menu not only a little variety but also to make it a bit healthier. Veggies may not sound as exciting for people who love meat better but if these are cooked perfectly on the grill, I’m pretty sure that they’re going to be blockbusters. With that being said, let me share some recipes that your guests will surely love!
Need great grilling recipes? Fire up the barbeque with one of our favorite BBQ vegetable recipes for the grill. In a small bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients. Place 3 tablespoons marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Add vegetables; seal bag and turn to coat. Marinate 1-1/2 hours at room temperature.
Transfer vegetables to a grilling grid; place grid on grill rack. Grill vegetables, covered, over medium heat 8-12 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally.
That’s an obviously enticing collection of grilled vegetables recipes. I specially love the roasted portobellos with mozzarella cheese! It’s definitely cheesy and juicy with a dose of sweetness. The corns, of course, are a popular choice among barbecue lovers. Who would ever eat grilled steak without it? Anyway, if you didn’t find anything you like on the list I just gave, here’s another one you should definitely check out.
A lot of veggies do well on the grill, but some reallystand out–asparagus, corn, eggplant, mushrooms, peppers (bell or hot), onions, even cabbage. Most vegetables cook better and are less likely to stick if marinated first or brushed lightly with cooking oil. For added flavor, sprinkle grilled vegetables with fresh herbs. Perfect for grilling, corn even comes with its own wrapper. Corn’s frequent companion, the tomato, might not seem well-suited for grilling, but it works surprisingly well. Grilling also brings out the best in most mushrooms, especially portobellos. Depending on what you’re grilling, you might want to cut larger veggies (like eggplants, squash, and onions) into smaller pieces. Small vegetables like cherry tomatoes or sliced veggies work best threaded through kabobs. You can also wrap vegetables in heavy duty foil, though cooking in foil cuts back on that appealing smoky flavor.
