I absolutely love grilling vegetables. There’s almost something therapeutic about it for me. Plus, the flavors of the veggies are just incredible after they’ve been grilled. I especially love the grilled fennel.
It’s great to serve the veggies just as they are or top them with some toasted pine nuts and feta cheese. I grilled lots of vegetables with the plan of using them over the next few days in many dishes.
One of my favorite things to make is a chopped salad using the grilled vegetables, especially tasty with the asparagus and fennel. Cut the veggies into bite size pieces. To them add some cut Romaine Lettuce. Toss with a Balsamic Vinaigrette and top with some croutons and shaved Parmesan Reggiano.
Last night, I made 2 pizzas for dinner using the vegetables. One pizza had pesto on it with grilled squash on top and some onions and peppers. I topped it with a little Truffle Cheese (from Trader Joe’s).
The other pizza had red sauce on it, along with some sliced Portabello mushrooms, onions, bell peppers and fresh mozzarella.
We ate them in front of the fireplace… which made it even more delicious and enjoyable!
