Mixed Grilled Vegetables

Although the calendar and shorter days are telling me it’s fall, my air conditioner is telling me otherwise. It’s still hot here (shorts and flip flops hot). One benefit of it being hot means that my little garden that could is still producing so I’m going to hold onto summer’s goodness for just a little longer. We love to grill an assortment of veggies and then use them as a side or chop them into pieces and make a SIMPLE SUMMER GARDEN PASTA dish.

To grill your veggies, simple trim the edges and lightly brush them with oil. If you’re grilling EGGPLANT they’ll need a little more attention. For eggplant: trim the edges, cut them into desired slices and then season with salt. Leave them in a colander for at least 30 minutes so they release their bitterness (now don’t we wish we could do that to some people) Then just pat them dry, lightly brush them with oil and chuck them onto the grill pan. Grill until you have grill marks and flip. Continue cooking until you reach desired tenderness.

Speaking of grill pan. Isn’t that one lovely. This BBQ pan has fat runoff grates, cooks food evenly and yet still allows the BBQ flavors to infuse the food. It also has a flat surface for your veggies, allowing you to cook up to three dishes at the same time. No more scrubbing the grill after you cook, because this pan cleans up in the kitchen sink with a sponge and it’s dishwasher safe. Another bonus is that you can use metal utensils thanks to DuPont™ Teflon® ScratchGuard® nonstick coating (twice as tough as stainless steel!). How’s that for a one pan wonder? Now would you like to try and win one?
