Grilling over the weekend is a fun activity to do. How about making some Easy Grilled Vegetables? Summer might be over, but it is not that cold yet to go out and grill your favorite foods. If you are reading this post during winter or during a rainy cold weather, that is absolutely fine; you can still grill indoors using a grill pan (over the stove).
It is nice to grill some New York Strip Steak for lunch. It will be more enjoyable if you also do this easy grilled vegetables because it well compliments the steak as a side dish. You can even opt out on mashed potato or homemade fries since the steak and vegetables make a complete meal.
So, how easy is “easy”? Well, let’s just say that preparation and cooking time is less than 20 minutes. All you have to do is grill, baste, and sprinkle salt and pepper. Aside from being a side dish, you can make a vegetable wrap out of this too — all you need are flour tortillas and some lettuce leaves.
