Both vegetarians and non-vegetarians enjoy grilled vegetables equally. Vegetables are easy to grill. Always remember to cut or slice the washed vegetables in small and consistent pieces. You could use kebabs skewers or heavy-duty aluminum foil for grilling small vegetables. However, large pieces of vegetable could be placed directly on the grill. Another point to keep in mind is never leave the vegetable grill unattended because the cooking time for vegetables is less. Try out these easy grilled vegetable recipes.

Grilled Vegetable Kebabs with Homemade Croutons

Ingredients

For Vegetable Kebabs
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup halved mushrooms
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine/vinegar
For croutons
  • 4 slices freshly baked bread
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Herbs and spices of your choice
You need 4 skewers and a sheet of heavy-duty foil.

Preparation

In a wide-mouthed bowl, blend vinegar and oil and keep it aside. Slice the bell peppers and zucchini into wide pieces. Cube the onion into 12 pieces. Arrange the vegetables by alternating them on 4 large skewers. Marinate the kebabs by rubbing the mixture of oil and vinegar. Leave it undisturbed for a minimum of 15 minutes. Place the skewers on medium hot coal and grill for 10-12 minutes or till the vegetables turn slightly brown or tender. The kebabs should be served hot.

Homemade croutons are tastier compared to the one's bought from a food store. Whisk the herbs and spice along with olive oil. Spread this flavored oil on both sides of the bread before arranging them on a heavy-duty foil. Place the foil on the top rack of the preheated grill and grill at 300ºC for 30 - 45 minutes or till they become crisp and dry.

Serve it along with the hot grilled vegetable kebabs and sauce. Grilled vegetables are highly nutritious.

Grilling Corn Cobs with Husks

Ingredients
  • 4 corn cobs with husk
  • 4 tbsp. soft butter (keep it out for an hour)
  • 4 tsp. powdered black pepper
  • Ground paprika and salt to taste
Preparation

The corn cobs have to be cleaned before using. Without detaching from the stem of the corn cob, separate the husks. The corn silk could be removed by pulling them off from the kernels. Apply butter along the entire length of the corn cob and sprinkle the same with salt, pepper, and paprika. Cover the corn with husks and tie the end of the husks with kitchen twine. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining corn cobs.

Cover the husk handles with heavy-duty foil and place it over low heat to prevent burning. Turn the corn cob once in 5 minutes. The entire cooking time would take 15 - 10 minutes. When it is ready, the color of the husk would turn dark brown and would be a bit charred.

Soak the corn cobs with husks in cold water for an hour before grilling them. This would prevent the husks from burning and the corn from becoming tough and dry.
