We all know a song that reminds us of summertime. The long hot days where you thought you might burst from the heat (my personal fav), or not knowing what time it is because the sun would never go down, or you swear it doesn't go down until 10:30 at night.
Then, there's those great dinners out where you can sit on a restaurant patio with good friends and dine sufficiently and look up and realize it's a clear night and you can see every star in the sky.
I'm sure there is someone who's favorite season is not summer, but I don't know them.
Besides sitting in the sun and marveling at it's generous heat, grilling veggies is one of my favorite things to do! This recipe is simple, fast, and easy peasy! It also inspires me to eat more vegetables. I hope it does the same for you.
I like to grill the veggies at high heat (kind of like the same concept as stirfrying) so that it cooks to 'al dente'. That's just long enough to keep that snappiness to the vegetables and give it that smoky flavor that I'm in love with.
I have discovered that virtually any vegetable can be grilled. You should experiment with many different kinds too.
In the pic below are my favorite veggies that I grill often, but I'm not limited by them.
