Grilled Vegetables

Photo by Erich Boenzli

Grilling vegetables is not about having special equipment. The best vegetables to grill are the ones that are ripe in your garden or fresh at the market.

2 bell peppers ( remove core and seeds, quarter )
1 large red onion ( peel and quarter )
1 medium eggplant ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1 medium zucchini ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1/2 lb asparagus ( cut off woody ends )
2 medium tomatoes ( cut in half, or a bunch of grape tomatoes, leave whole )
2 large portobello mushrooms ( I like them whole )
1/2 c olive oil ( or more )
Juice from a half lemon or lime
Generous pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper

Meaty Mushroom-Stuffed Eggplant

A middle-eastern approach to eggplant and mushrooms. A recipe loaded with umami flavors that will fill you up. You can add some spices such as clove or rosemary to add an additional boost to the dish. You can also substitute beef with ground lamb for a tastier result. Or, roast the eggplant in the oven for 20 minutes before adding the meat filling and then roast it again for another 5 minutes to create a great texture without the smoky flavor.

4 pieces (2 lbs) large Eggplant
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp Extra virgin Olive Oil
15 ounces oyster mushroom
8 ounces ground beef
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp cumin
(1 tbsp) hoisin sauce
1 oz Parsley leaves
(3 tbsp) greek yogurt

  1. Halve the eggplants lengthwise and cut out the flesh, leaving 1/4-inch shells. Cut the flesh into 1/2-inch dice. Salt the eggplant shells and let stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Pat the shells...

Fried vegetable fritters

Serve this dish as an appetizer. It would be lovely before serving this Pot Roast. The spices will excite your palate before you digging into the savory meat dish.These spicy vegetable fritters would pair wonderfully with a dry and fruity rosé. If you have a red wine you like best, try this recipe with the rosé version. But, our suggestion is to lean towards a heavier rosé, one made from a heavy red grape.

1 large potato
1 small eggplant
1 onion
1/4 cups white flour
2/3 cup dried chickpeas
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper

1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp whole coriander seeds
2 tbsp warm water
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
