No Dishes - Grilled Veggies
Buy a mattress and get a free barbecue grill! Enticing enough...especially since we needed a new mattress, anyway. It might have been even better if the grill came assembled. After several hours and a few glitches with instructions and parts, hubby and I high fived each other. We probably should have toasted with a drink instead.
The next evening we tried out our new grill. It's nothing spectacular, but to us, it's kind of nice. No charcoal or lighter fluid to mess with, so I'll be doing more grilling myself. And with that future kitchen remodel on the horizon, this will be our main means of meal prep.
I love roasted veggies, so my first side dish was a simple grilled vegetable medley which was cooked in a packet of foil. Very basic and no dishes!
On a large piece of foil arrange:
2 baby bok choy, sliced lengthwise
2 carrots, sliced
5 cloves of garlic, or more, leave whole
1/2 cup red onion, sliced or in chunks
5 Tbsp margarine
drizzle of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
I also had trimmings from the garden which I added. Fresh parsley, spinach, beet and radish leaves. Use your imagination.
Lay the veggies on the foil, add the margarine, salt & pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Fold the top and ends loosely so that it steams. Place onto the grill for about 20-25 minutes. Serve. It doesn't get any easier than that! Enjoy..
