Discover the secret to turning nutritious veggies into quick and flavorful meals – just fire up the grill and learn how to season and grill veggies like a pro!
My go-to favorite way to prepare veggies is grilling, since it takes just minutes to make a whole plateful of tasty veggies that can be used for creating a whole host of healthy, flavorful meals!
Honestly, it doesn’t get any easier than just brushing your veggies with a little oil, giving them a quick sprinkle of seasoning, and then tossing them onto the grill! Of course, knowing how to properly grill veggies can be a challenge, so be sure to check out my “How to Grill Veggies like a Pro” tips in the recipe notes below.
Another plus, grilled veggies almost always get a thumbs-up from those picky eaters in your home, since the caramelizing flames and touch of smoke from grilling does wonders for enhancing flavor!
When it comes to kicking up the flavor a notch, there are lots of seasoning blends to choose from for enhancing the flavor of your favorite veggies. However, I find it’s just as easy (and often more economical) to make your own seasoning blends!
My simple and flavorful “Great Grilling Herb Seasoning Mix” recipe shared below is perfect for enhancing the fresh flavors of your favorite veggies, making them so irresistibly-good, even the picky eaters in your home may find themselves asking for seconds. Yay!
Similar to the seasonings used in my popular Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken, this blend is easy to customize to create even more fabulous flavor profiles. For example …
- Spice it up! If you like a little heat, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the mix.
- Mediterranean flair! Capture the flavor of the Mediterranean by adding a touch of cumin and coriander.
- Italian twist! Add a little dried basil and marjoram to the blend for an Italian twist to this tasty and versatile seasoning mix.
P.S. This flavorful seasoning mix is not only great for veggies, it’s also perfect for seasoning poultry, fish and meats! That’s why, during the holiday season, we make up big batches of this tasty seasoning mix to give as gifts to friends, along with recipe cards with ideas for using it.
