Share a favorite cute idea/ recipe?
I once saw asparagus "RAFTS" done on a cooking show!
The chef speared the asparagus, about 6 or 8 across and brushed with marinade below and grilled. Then served up like a little raft!
Takes a little TLC to prepare and grill but how fun!
The presentation was amazing and...great for a dinner party where you want to impress....or a dinner party for one....yourself!

16-20 asparagus spears, about 500g/1lb 2oz
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tbsp sesame seeds

Just google asparagus raft "images" and you will get the jist!

I live for brussels sprouts, but I had never thought of cooking lettuce - I'll have to try that.

No. Fresh from the produce section. You cook them first in boiling water, then cut in half from top to bottom, remove the choke and marinate in a vinaigrette before putting on the grill.

But I suppose you could use the jarred or canned ones; I hadn't even thought of that.

you mean the ones that you get in jars or cans?
That's interesting. I don't often use them other than in salads, just from the container.

So I was watching PBS the other day and someone was cooking marinated artichokes on the grill. Had to try them for myself. Really tasty.

Maybe I should have labeled the thread - favourite grilled item, and that would include fruit.

Hubby wants to try peaches, as soon as some good ones arrive in the supermarket.

What great ideas. When I saw the thread I was going to mention the romaine but saw some of you beat me to it. I also like to do kabobs with peppers, onion, and yellow squash or zucchini.

I love this thread! I'd never thought of grilling cauliflower or pineapple and had totally forgotten about grilled romaine - a family favorite last summer. I've got a head of cauliflower that I'm gonna throw on the grill tonight and pair with the watermelon salad that was the SparkRecipe of the day. I'm drooling already!

Forgive me that this is not a veggie - - but my absolute FAVORITE is grilled pineapple. If you haven't tried it, you have to. It's amazing!

I saw Michael Smith (chef) do grilled Romaine once - I forgot about that.
I did bok choy (or some sort of Chinese greens) recently - cut in half lengthwise and seasoned with a bit of olive oil and some sort of seasoning (can't remember which).

Mostly, I'm the one eating the grilled veggies (except perhaps onions), as hubby isn't quite into that, and, with his lactose intolerance, and allergies to white fish (which we haven't figured out regarding anchovies - so there are certain things that just say 'fish' in the ingredients that we avoid) - we don't do that type of dressing, unless it's for me, alone.

Romaine lettuce - lightly brush (or spray) on EVOO on a whole head of lettuce and then serve with homemade Caesar dressing. It gets a little limpy and brown on the edges. Do it to your desired doneness. I'm having it today for dinner. I also grate on parmesan cheese.

Caesar Dressing
Drain 1 can of flat anchovies saving oil (I use those Good Seasons Cruets)
finely cut up or mash anchovies and add to oil with
2 cloves of garlic minced (or mashed with a fork with some of the anchovy oil)
1 tsp. dry mustard (you can also a tsp of Dijon in a pinch)
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
juice from 1 lemon (4 Tbls. of juice)
2/3c EVOO extra virgin Olive Oil

Vidalia onions... YUM!
I love Asian eggplant, cut in half and brushed with olive oil and vinegar (or lemon juice) and garlic.

Along with what was already mentioned I like small Vidalia onions peeled, root end cut off and scored in quarters (or more like cutting a pie) but not cut all the way through, topped with a pat of organic butter, sea salt and pepper and wrapped individually in foil. Grilled until soft.

Portabello mushrooms. Sprayed or brushed with EVOO.

What's yours?

I'm fond of

zucchini
tomatoes (just cut in half or they really fall apart)
peppers of just about any colour
asparagus
portabella mushrooms

I like roast (in the oven) veggies, too.
