Vegetables are born for fire!
I’m not dogging on raw vegetables, they have their purpose and place in our lives as well. Like raw carrots with Homemade Ranch Dressing. They go together like peas and carrots.
But what I’m talking about are grilled-over open flame-charred-with those perfect little grill mark-vegetables.
Are you with me here?
And what better to blend all those perfect vegetables together than a marinade with balsamic vinegar in it. You know I could drink balsamic straight from the bottle at this point. And I don’t mean the watery balsamic you find in grocery stores either.
Go out and buy yourself a good QUALITY balsamic. It will be the consistency between the watered down store version and a balsamic reduction. You will notice the difference immediately, trust me.
Start by gathering all your veggies. I used the ones I love the most, but you can use just about anything really. I grabbed some peppers, zucchini and yellow squash (be sure to get organic otherwise you’ve got yourself a plateful of GMOs), onion and Portobello mushrooms.
You want to be sure to cut all your veggies around the same size so they grill evenly. I cut my peppers in thirds, tomatoes in half, mushrooms in large chunks and used a mandolin for the zucchini.
I didn’t have any large Ziploc bags (which is what I would recommend you marinade your veggies in) so I had to use a 9 x 13 pan which obviously wasn’t my best strategy for this.
You want to start grilling with the veggies that take the most time to cook, that would be the peppers and onions. Next add the mushrooms, zucchini and finally the tomatoes.
Save some of the balsamic vinaigrette to pour over those deliciously grilled veggies and you my friend will be the envy of all!
