One great thing about summer is that you can simply start your grill and cook a number of quick meals in a matter of minutes. For a quick, healthy and delicious way to eat your vegetables, grill them. Then eat them as is, in a salad or with bread - they are succulent and flavorful. Toss in some spices or home made dressing, mix and match, and you have enough variety for a whole week.
Let's start off with some grilled peppers, eggplants and zucchini.
2 cups Slices/Strips of peppers, eggplants and zucchini - make it colorful
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp Red crushed pepper/curry powder for spiciness (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl until all vegetables are coated evenly.
Grill on each side for a couple of minutes each, until done and marked.
This may be eaten with yogurt relish on the side (great on a hot day). Add other vegetables such as onions, tomatoes,potatoes or mushrooms. You could also add tofu. If you are making a veggie panini, add goat cheese for that extra punch. Experiment with other herbs and spices to make these your own! Enjoy...
