With summer in full swing, now is the time to take advantage of the many vegetable varieties that are available. I prefer to grill vegetables, because as they begin to caramelize under the intense heat, it brings out full flavor and natural sweetness. I grill some type of vegetable every day all year long. When weather forces me inside I pull out my trusty indoor grill pan and don’t miss a beat.
Grilled vegetables are a healthy choice, easy to prepare and super low in calories. Here are a few suggestions on how to serve them up:
Chopped vegetable salad with crumbled Greek feta, fresh basil and a squeeze of lemon juice. You can even toss in chopped grilled chicken or shrimp.
Tossed in your favorite pasta with freshly grated Romano cheese, chopped Italian parsley and basil.
Pizza, with buffalo, goat or feta cheese; fresh basil and thyme. You can also grill the pizza dough, just brush olive oil on both sides and place on a hot grill.
In an omelet with goat cheese and your favorite fresh herbs.
