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

This headline may sound like an exaggeration, but it's not. This recipe perfectly fuses the chicken's flavor and texture with a deep-flavored, umami-rich broth. And the best part…actually the two best parts are: It tastes like you cooked this for four hours & it takes less than an hour from start to finish.

4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin on - about 1.5 lbs
3 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil
2 c chicken stock
1/2 c red wine
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
10 oz mushrooms, sliced
10 oz fresh spinach, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, finely sliced
1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 (plus leftovers, maybe..)

Gazpacho is an absolutely perfect appetizer (or light main course) on a hot summer day. Today, there are many "traditional" recipes out there. My recipe is not traditional...it's original and adjustable and works with ingredients we already have in our essential pantry. All we need are some fresh tomatoes and a cucumber from your garden or farmer's market. It's more of an idea of a recipe for you to make your own.

2 lbs tomatoes, cored and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored, deseeded, and chopped
1 shallot, peeled and chopped
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
3 slices stale baguette
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt, more to taste
4 appetizers (plus 2 Bloody Marys)
