Thanks to Rachel Benson of Kamado Grill Recipes for writing this blog about delicious grilled vegetables!
I’m not the healthiest eater, but I am trying to get better. I’ve realized that I like vegetables a lot more when they are roasted on my Saffire Grill and accompanied with a dip or drizzled with lime-cilantro vinaigrette.
When I make vegetables, I try to eat a colorful variety because I read once that it helps provide a range of nutrients. Also, I think it is visually appealing to have a range of colors on your plate and can be fun for kids too. I’ll do everything I can to help my 3 year old son eat vegetables. He went through a period where he wouldn’t try new foods, and I struggled daily to get him to eat a balanced diet. Fortunately, that phase is over and he is doing much better eating all his food. I’m not sure if he is just eating better because we have consistently enforced our dinner rules, or if it’s because I’ve been grilling more and vegetables seem to just taste better off the grill… Either way I’m just glad he eats foods that are good for him!
I love roasting vegetables on my Saffire in the summer because it is one less thing in my oven generating heat. Also, it is an incredibly simple and easy side dish. First, wash, peel, and chop up your vegetables and place them in your foil pan. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on vegetables and sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Preheat your grill to 450F and grill on indirect heat for about 30 minutes or until roasted to your liking. Serve them right away off the grill, or add more flavor by drizzling with lime-cilantro vinaigrette. Enjoy!
