It’s a great time to grill some vegetables! Vegetables cook quickly and are so delicious. It is important to cut vegetables into uniform, small pieces if you want your vegetables to cook more quickly. Cut round vegetables like onions or eggplant into thin “rounds”—you’ll get more surface area.
They dry out when they hit the heat without a little oil. Before they hit the grill, toss them with a light coating of oil. Don’t use too much—it not only adds unnecessary calories, but dripping oil causes flare-ups and off flavors. Plus tossing them in oil helps your seasoning stick more uniformly. To prevent burning, sear vegetables over high heat, then move them to a cooler part of the grill to finish cooking. Using a grill basket lets you turn them throughout the cooking so they don’t burn.
Don’t forget the spices—garlic, summer fresh herbs, salt and pepper for a great summer dinner.
Cynthia Allen, College Hill resident and co-owner of Future Life Now will be offering mini sessions in the Feldenkrais Method of neuromuscular reeducation.
Come experience a free session and ask for help on what you want help with. Your back, neck or shoulders? Maybe it is your posture or walking that need help. The hands on work is relaxing and educational.
