Vegetable Medley w/ Sea Salt and OVOO

My wife fixes a veggie medley of butternut squash, mushrooms, red/green/orange bell peppers, onions, potatoes, and zucchini all cut up into bite size chunks. She drizzles it with olive oil, sprinkles generously with sea salt, then she wraps it tightly with HDAF, and bakes it for about an hour at 350°. (Unwraps the last 20 minutes). [p]This is one of my favorite veggie dishes. Generally I'm a meat and potatoes kinda guy. [p]I'm trying to convert it to an egg-cooked recipe. Should I just treat the egg like an oven, and cook it like she does, or does anyone have any other suggestions for adapting it to the BGE?[p]Thanks in advance


  • DynaGreaseball,[p]I do something similiar and if cooking a roast or poultry I have the egg around 350 for an hour or so and just toss the HDAF next to the meat. Sometimes a boullion cube, couple Tbs water. Portobellos are good also.

  • DynaGreaseball,
    I grill chicken on a raised grid. I cook the veggies with the evoo in a castiron skillet. Cut up the chicken and add to the veggies when they are starting to carmelize. Grill your soft tortillas a few mins on each side.
    Use the cast iron skillet as your serving dish and enjoy!

  • DynaGreaseball,
    My thing, similar, is thus: Add to EVOO and salt some dry vermouth and oregano. Put all that in a ziplock for about 1/2 hour to marinate. I have a wire basket that fits my BGE so I but it in and dump the veges in with the fire at about 400 after cooking my steaks. Toss occasionally and when they look done I eat them with my steak.

  • Hustling Hare,[p]This is sorta what I had in mind, but I wondered if they would dry out using a basket or a grill wok. If I could get the edges of the veggies a little toasty, but keep them moist for the most part, I think it would be great. I'll try your method next. Thanks
  • DynaGreaseball,
    Thanks everybody for your suggestions.

    DynaGreaseball, I like to do the vegetable thing in what I will call a 'basket' that has holes in it. The EVOO keeps things from drying out although some pieces will crisp a bit. Happy grillin'![p]Rascal

  • Rascal,[p]Here's my holey wok. Think this will work for veggies?[p]DSCN3077.jpg

    DynaGreaseball, Should do! The one I have is enameled steel with angled sides. I buy them at WalMart.[p]Rascal
