Most of the time people think grilling is only for carnivores. Well, that is not true! Anything and everything can be grilled. I absolutely love grilling veggies. It equals zero fat. No oil, no butter (if you’re just vegetarian or trying something new). It is literally just the fire, some water in a spray or squeeze bottle.
I know I have not been on in a week and I apologize! My life kind of took over and I needed to focus on some outside matters. Trying to get my posts where there recurring frequently on their own! Woot woot, trying to be tech savvy.
Today’s menu: Grilled veggie skewers, grilled corn, smashed potatoes and a grilled veggie burger! Yum-a-licious and protein packed.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 1 cup of Broccoli and Cauliflower cut in big chunks
- 2 ears of corn (or more if you’re doing a larger group)
- 1/2 pound of petite creamer potatoes
- 1 Boca Burger Veggie Burger
- handful of small baby bella mushrooms
- 4 wood skewers for shikabobs (Soaked in cold water- the longer the better!)
- Dill weed (dry seasoning)
- salt and pepper
- Turn your grill on to medium/hight heat!
- Turn the stove on and fill a large pot with water and bring to roaring boil.
- Add the potatoes to the boiling water.
- Meanwhile, take the ears of corns and peel the harder husk away, leaving a thin layer.
- You always want to put the corn first on the grill because it takes a longer time to cook.
- *cooking tip: If you are pressed for time, boiling corn is the fastest way to cook them!
- *cooking tip: If you don’t have a grill, but still want to infuse flavor. Peel the corn entirely and coat with olive oil and some seasonings then wrap in foil and bake in the oven for 20 minutes!
- Now, grab your skewers that have been soaking in cold water.
- *why!? to prevent the skewers from burning! Typically you want over 2 hours of soaking, but a good 15 minutes soak works as well.
- Take your rinsed, clean veggies and stack them up on the skewer.
- Now, put them on the grill, near your corn that is still cooking.
- By now, you may be freaking out because the husk has caught on fire. That is OKAY! Just grab your spray or squeeze bottle of water and saturate it. This will also help with the steam effect to help cook the corn.
- Also, great time to add your Boca Burger to the grill (spray lightly with cooking spray so it does not stick or fall apart when you flip. Make sure you use a spatula and not tongs-I learned the hard crumbly way lol!)
- Don’t forget your potatoes that are boiling! (Isn’t cooking fun!)
- Stab them with a fork to see if they are tender, if so, strain them in the sink! (Good way to get some anger out!)
- Throw the potatoes back in the pan and get potato masher and just do a quick hard smash. Here, I added the dill weed with a little salt and black pepper. (you can add butter here if you want or some olive oil).
- Cardio time! Run back out to the grill. Your corn, skewers, and Boca Burger should be done!
- Best part…ASSEMBLE and Eat!!
