I think that vegetables cooked on the grill are one of the most flavorful ways that you can prepare them. A whole new side of the veggie comes out when cooked that way. They get a slight smokiness from the grill and they just taste so fresh and wonderful. All you need to do is toss them with a little oil, season them up with your favorite seasoning and give them a few minutes on the grill and you have created something fabulous!
The one problem that you can have with grilling veggies, though, is that they can have a tendency to fall through the grates. So to fix that problem, I bought Steve a pan like this for his birthday this year.
It works great for grilling veggies. You still get all of the great flavor from the grill, but you don’t lose any of your food. The other thing I love is that you can cut the veggies into bite size pieces.
Today’s recipe is so simple that it’s almost not a recipe, more of an idea, but it’s absolutely delicious. I chose the stir fry vegetables to go along with the teriyaki chicken that we also grilled. You could make it the same way I did or you could use a different mix of vegetables and seasoning and it will be equally delicious!
Grilled Vegetable “Stir Fry”
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1/2 red onion
- 1 – 12 oz bag fresh stir fry vegetables
- about 1 tbsp peanut oil
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- granulated garlic
Chop red pepper and onion into about 1 inch chunks. Toss with peanut oil and sesame oil. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper and toss again.
Stir fry veggies in grill pan on a grill heated to medium high. Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently until veggies are crisp-tender.
