Back on Track: Grill Veggies For the Week

Summer weather is winding down, so it's time to grill as much as you can before it gets too chilly. Since I don't always have time to light up the grill after work, I like to grill up a bunch of veggies on Sunday so I'll have extra for the week. They taste great on their own, mixed with pasta, as a pizza topping, or in a sandwich.

All you have to do is wash an array of vegetables such as mushrooms, carrots, peppers, eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes, and zucchini. Then slice them so they're still in big chunks since they tend to shrink once they're cooked. Place the veggies in a big bowl and mix them with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then pour them into a grill basket and periodically stir them while they cook. After about 40 minutes, you'll have savory, roasted veggies that melt in your mouth. Enjoy some for dinner and store the rest in the fridge in an airtight container.

I do this! Yep! I roast up the above veggies for my boyfriend to take for his lunch and then I do... Squash, parsnips, beetroot, chickpeas, sweetcorn, carrots and sweet potato in a spiced oil and we eat it with rice during the week. MMMMMM!!

Man - we just got our first grill this summer and I plan on making my hubby grill even after it starts snowing! (Is that even possible, ha ha?) Grilled veggies are the best!

Our grill is just outside of our kitchen door, so assuming it isn't too terrible outside, we do SOME grilling in the cooler months! I actually have corn and eggplant to throw on the grill this week. Steaming zucchini on the grill in tinfoil is also really yummy!

And that is suppose to last you a week? That would last me ONE NIGHT (one meal)... ha ha! It looks awesome though!

Spectra I love doing that with peppers and eggplant...wow roasted eggplant is good! But I don't have a gas stove anymore and I miss it, it doesn't taste nearly the same in the oven.

I don't have enough time to do that, but I do take a bunch of green peppers and stick them on the burners on the stove until they're all burnt up. Then I stick them in a bag, wait about 10 minutes, then take them out and slide the skin off of them...voila, instant roasted peppers. I put them in a container and eat them all week.

Very yummy, also combined with garlic and fresh herbs like rosemary! Pumpkin and sweet potatoes go great in dishes like this as well
