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 fresh and healthy salad is so refreshing. It would be great for lunch or as a side dish for dinner. Give this vegan and vegetarian friendly recipe a try.

You can add some lettuce, preferably romaine or another green leafy lettuce. You can also add red cabbage for its color and crispiness. You can also interchange apples for pears. Roasted cherry tomatoes also add some body and a depth of flavor to the dish.

This little appetizer idea is great for brunch or any party. It's light and creamy and refreshing.

You can also use butter instead of the olive oil to kick up the umami flavor. You could also garnish this dish with a bit of parsley or basil.

This dish is great with a chilled white wine. You could go oaky. For example, an oaked Chardonnay would be nice. But, we think an aged white wine would be even better. The nuttiness of the tahini would pair nicely with the nuttiness in these older wines. If you can find and unfiltered one, that's even better.

9 oz cooked Chickpeas
1 whole Lemon
(4 oz) Tahini
2 Cloves garlic
(2 tbsp) Olive Oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin
(3 tbsp) water
1 tsp paprika
3 Cucumbers
2 oz Cherry Tomatoes
Salt to taste
