Grilled (or Sauteed) Seasoned Vegetables

February 27th, 2010

This recipe provides a tasty alternative to simply steaming your vegetables.  There are 2 different cooking methods that can be used:  1) Wrapped in aluminum foil and put on grill (or in oven) and 2) Sauteed on the stovetop in a covered skillet.

Ingredients:

1) Vegetables of choice:  Broccoli, Asparagus, Bell Peppers, Zucchini, Squash, and similar.  All vegetables can be mixed together or alone or in any other combination.

2) Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning

3) Mesquite Seasoning

4) Paprika Seasoning

5) Ground Black Pepper

6) Non-Fat Cooking Spray (e.g., Pam)

7) Worcestershire Sauce (optional)

8) Aluminum Foil or Pyrex Dish (or baking sheet)

Directions for Method 1, Wrapped in aluminum foil and put on grill (or in oven):

1) If baking on grill, lay out two large sheets of aluminum foil on top of each other.  If baking in oven, you can do the same, or spray a glass Pyrex dish (or baking sheet) with Pam.

2) Place vegetables (slice to preferred size) on aluminum foil (if baking on grill) or in glass Pyrex dish or baking sheet (if baking in oven).

3) Spray vegetables generously with non-fat cooking spray.

4) Season vegetables with Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning, Mesquite Seasoning, Paprika Seasoning, and Ground Black Pepper.

5) Add a few squirts of Worcestershire Sauce if desired or skip this step.

6) Spray vegetables generously again with non-fat cooking spray after seasonings have been put on.

7) Fold aluminum foil over vegetables to fully enclose (if baking on grill) or cover glass Pyrex Dish or baking sheet with aluminum foil (if baking in oven).

8) Start-up grill on high heat (if baking on grill) or oven broiler (if baking in oven).  Heat grill until it reaches 500 degrees and open grill lid.  Place aluminum foil wrapped vegetables on grill surface (if baking on grill) or directly into oven broiler (if baking in oven).

9) Remove vegetables after they reach desired firmness (usually after 10 - 15 minutes) of cooking and serve.

Directions for Method 2, Sauteed on the stovetop in a covered skillet:

1) Place a medium to large-sized skillet on stovetop, spray generously with non-fat cooking spray, and pre-heat on medium heat. 

2) Place vegetables (slice to preferred size) into pre-heated skillet.

3) Spray vegetables generously with non-fat cooking spray immediately after placing in skillet.

4) Season vegetables with Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning, Mesquite Seasoning, Paprika Seasoning, and Ground Black Pepper.

5) Add a few squirts of Worcestershire Sauce if desired or skip this step.

6) Spray vegetables generously again with non-fat cooking spray after seasonings have been put on.

7) Cover skillet with fitted lid.

8) Periodically turn vegetables and move around in skillet so that they do not stick and burn.

9) Remove vegetables after they reach desired firmness (usually after 6 - 8 minutes) of cooking and serve.
