Mushrooms are one of the juiciest and most delicious vegetables when grilled.
They can be grilled by for up to 20 minutes after applying a small amount of oil to it or after marinating. They contain a high amount of water but if grilled incorrectly they tend to dry out. Mushrooms are of different shapes; a smaller mushroom, like Cremini, cooks well above high direct heat; a larger one, like Portobello, needs a little more time over a lower temperature before cooking.
If you love grilled vegetables, you should definitely try Brussel sprouts - you will fall in love with this delicious food. Slice the Brussels in half through the stem and apply little oil on them. Grill for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway, in a grill basket or on metal skewers over medium-high heat. It should be a little overcooked and bright green from the outside. Sprinkle onion and garlic powder - the smoky flavour is sure to get you all the appreciation.
Grilled cauliflower serves as the best sweet dish that's satisfying and keto-friendly. Cut the head into thick slices and lightly coat it with oil or an oil-based marinade. Cook over a medium-high heat directly on the grill for about five minutes per side, or until it gets tender with nice grill marks. Cauliflower is high in fibre and Vitamin B, so add this tasty nutritious cauliflower to your barbeque menu and enjoy!!!
You may or may not like to eat it in your regular routine but there are high chances that you will love it in your barbeque. Soak the chopped eggplant in a saltwater brine or salty marinade for up to an hour. Dry well and brush with oil and then grill them over medium-high heat for about 8 to 10 minutes, flipping them halfway. Let nice grill marks appear on them. Crispy brown outside while sweet creamy inside. Sprinkle some salt on the top and your eggplant is ready to be served.
One of the favourites during summers is grilled corn. Peel away the loose outer husk and cut off the silk sticking out of the top. Grill over high heat, rotate at every five minutes or so until the husks are charred all the way around and till the corn inside is brightly coloured. Corn is the simplest of all the veggies to grill and contains Vitamin C and anti-oxidants. Add tasty and healthy pearl coloured corn in your barbecue and enjoy.
Add colour to your barbeque using green, yellow, and red peppers. Slice peppers into thick rings and place them directly on the grill, or slice into strips and add to a grill basket or foil packet. Cook over medium-high heat for 5 to 10 minutes until lightly charred and crisp-tender. Use it to top sausages, in a salad, or as a simple side dish. Pepper is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin A. It is healthy for the heart and boosts immunity.
