Grilled Vegetables

The Ingredients

Baby carrots

Sugar snap peas, ends snipped

1-2 T. Olive oil

Juice of 1/2 lemon

A sprinkling of Ground Coriander

Salt & pepper to taste

Since the carrots would take longer to cook than the peas, I steamed them in the microwave at 70% power for about 6 minutes.  Then I mixed all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  Using a straining spoon to eliminate the excess liquid, I transferred the mixture to a grill basket, and cooked it on low heat, turning it often, until it was browned, maybe 15 -20 minutes.

I’m going to try to keep the grill going as long as I can before Old Man Winter comes along.  ~Enjoy, Nancy

Grilled Zucchini

This one is so easy and yummy 🙂

The Ingredients

zucchini or squash

olive oil

salt

ground pepper

Preheat the grill for about 15 minutes at high heat.  Wash the zucchini, then slice it to about 1/2 inch slices.

Drizzle with olive oil.  Add salt and pepper to taste, and you’re ready for the grill.  If you don’t have a grill you can easily use a grill pan on the stove top.

I tried to alternate the position, so I could get nice grill marks, but it’s not really that important.  I turned them about every 5 minutes, and total cook time was about 20 minutes.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!  Here at my house, the leaves are starting to fall from the trees already 😦  ~Nancy
