With a lot to fit in just a few short weeks before our service year ends, it seems like summer is rushing by! I always want to remind our Volunteer Maryland Coordinators to take time during this busy season and treat themselves well. And what says summer relaxation better than grilling? As a part of our AmeriRecipes collection (low-cost, easy to prepare, and delicious!), I present Grilling with Veggies!
Beyond just a veggie-filled skewer, grilling vegetables can add a whole new dimension. A little bit of olive oil, the sweetness of caramelization, and the smokey flavor all combine to bring intense flavor and fragrance. For a whole list of creative veggie dishes for the grill, check out this blog.
Don’t have a grill? Here are some options: 1) Ask your friends. Most grill owners don’t use them as often as they would like to and would love an excuse to fire up their grill. 2) Go to a local park. Some parks have grills and picnic tables for the public to use. Just make sure to bring a grill brush to clean it before and after use. 3) Buy a mini-grill! While this is not an investment piece, it will work for making some tasty summer meals.
