Vegetables, Pan, Vegetable Pan, Beans

The grill is the friend this summer. It is possible to make whole meals on this very simple piece of gear and make delicious food. This create the nice char and the delicious smoky flavor. But, (always a but) that isn’t so healthy.
The charred pieces have carcinogenic chemicals. Plus, like all cooking, you lose juices and vitamins with heat.
It is not all bad news. Grilled vegetables taste yummy. They cook fast and retain their snap. It is one of the better cooking procedures, better than boiling.
Here’s the best way to cook meats and vegetables on the grill. Marinade everything.
Use an oil base. Olive oil is popular.
Add lots and lots of herbs and spices.
Coat the grill with olive oil to prevent sticking.
Grill fast, but don’t over cook. Vegetables on the grill need to be accomplished quickly.
Any veggies can be done on the grill. Larger ones can be cut into smaller pieces. Zucchini, corn, green beans, asparagus, tomato (firm ones), onion, garlic (whole cloves), potato, squash, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, beets, turnips are all good candidates. All fruit that are a bit more solid are also good. That way, you have the freshest vegetables. Fresh is important because new vegetables retain their structure. Firm veggies are better.
Ever attempted grilled steaks or watermelon? You don’t know what you are missing!
All meats can be performed on the grill. Eggs and fish should be accomplished in a pan or on foil, because they can fall through the grates. This is much healthier, with a much better fat profile (more heart healthy omega-3s). Locate a local farm which sells eggs. See if they let their chickens run around and eat weeds and bugs, their natural diet. The meats and eggs taste better on a natural diet, and cook so much better. Yes, you may taste the difference.
Best of all: you can not cook breads, pastas, or any junk on the grill! Just don’t go incorporating it in.
Cook more on the grill this summer. It’s quicker, healthier, and tastier! Plus, picking the local farmer’s markets and butcher is cheaper!
