I love meat, but I love veggies too. Any great tips for grilling vegetables on the BGE? What are your favorite vegetables to grill? I don't want to add bacon but I do enjoy a little oil or seasoning. :)

    Head of cauliflower roasts nicely. No seasoning at all it gets sweet.

    I am not a rabbit so no I do not. J/k.  I honestly like peppers and onions tossed in S&P and a little EVOO and grilled in a grill basket.  Corn is always a fan favorite.  I realize this isn't a veggie but grilled peaches and pineapple are delicious.

    Sprouts in the CI with some EVOO, dried cranberries and/or cherries and usually add some bacon pieces or salt pork, but could be left out. 

    Or red potatoes, garlic, pepper, shrooms in the drip pan under pork loin. Season to taste.

    I almost never grill vegetables. I love'em and eat them almost daily, but I rarely  do them on the grill. Asparagus is excellent with a little olive oil and s&p, right on the grid.

    Brussels sprouts can be good too, in a cast-iron skillet, halved and seared until nicely browned.

    Sauté a shallot and then add a bag of thawed peas. Serve with a squirt of fresh lemon juice.

    Burnt carrots or burnt tomatoes à la Francis Mallmann are great!,28804,1999723_1999721_1999711,00.html

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    In the wok or the veggie basket. Little EVOO, salt and pepper and maybe a little balsamic vinegar.

    Peppers, eggplant, and onions cooked direct are great on an Egg. 

    Peppers and eggplant are straightforward. Here's an onion recipe:

    Peel the onion, slice in half crosswise (i.e.. midway between the root and top).  Turn the onion halves so that the root and top ends are down.  Cut  partially down towards the top or the root end.  Spread the onion like a "Bloomin Onion" at Outback Steakhouse.  Mix soy sauce (2 Tbsps), two or three drops of sesame seed oil, and, if you like it, some hot sauce (Sriracha or Franks).  If you don't like hot sauce, add black pepper.  Pour it on the onion halves.  Cook direct on the BGE.   Really good.

    Cherry tomatoes are amazing.  Got that recipe from BGE email last week.  Cherry toms halved, drizzle olive oil, sea salt and mix of herbs.  Pop in the Egg when you close it down and leave over night.  Go great in salad.

    Leeks are also fantastic.  Little oil and sea salt.

    usually do the beets and fennel at the same time. roasted brussels is good too, roast them at high heat

    Off course, whole potatos and sweet potatoes. Corn.

    A standard for me is roasted root veg pouches. Potatoes, onions, carrots, parsley root if I can find it), whole garlic cloves, S&P, and butter, all in chunks, and wrapped tightly in HD foil. Cooked raised, direct, till butter is sizzling. Then flip. Continue till a therm in the potatoes reads 200, open and allow to brown some.

    I've tried roasted heartsd of romaine, but wasn't impressed.

    Stuffed whole squash or pumpkins.

    I intend to try grilling whole carrots direct till partially charred. Also, slices of celeriac root.

    Local Asian market carries a bunch of stuff that I may try, like burdock (gobo) root, taro root, and other things that are pretty much a mystery to me.

    asparagus w/little olive oil and salt/pepper - grilled ~3-4 min a side - Good stuff.
