Quick and Easy Grilled Vegetable Recipes

Looking for a quick and easy side to go with your diabetes-friendly supper? Grilled vegetables are a tasty and healthy addition to any lunch or dinner. These yummy sides are super simple to prepare — just start the grill and the revamped veggies will be ready in no time!

Olive oil, chili powder, and a bit of salt and pepper — that’s all you need to pack these grilled veggies with flavor. Double-wrapping the potatoes in foil prevents the flavorful juices from leaking out when you turn over the foil packet on the grill……

 

Grilled Vegetable Burrito

This isn’t a boring burrito! Grilled sweet peppers, zucchini, portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, avocados, and more mingle in whole grain tortillas, making these sizzling wraps super satisfying. Who said grilled veggies could only be side dishes?…..

 

Grilled Corn Salad

Corn, spinach, cherry tomatoes, and fresh oregano make this savory salad a home gardener’s delight. If you don’t grow your own vegetables, shop at a local farmer’s market……

Sage of an idea…….

 

To add a rich, intense flavor to chicken or pork roasts, tuck whole sage leaves just under the skin of the chicken or into small slits into the fat of pork before roasting.

Stir-Fry cuts…..

 

For even cooking, cut all the ingredients the same size. Because stir-fry is a quick a cooking method the whole time while you stir-frying you have to use the highest heat to quickly cook the food. So it’s important to keep the food at an equal size. For example, if you stir-fry pork or chicken with vegetables, try to cut them in equal size, like julienned, slice or cubes.

Making your own Biscuits…..

 

Make sure all of the ingredients, including the flour and baking powder, are cold. Also don’t overwork the dough: Mix just until the liquid is incorporated, and knead just until the dough comes together. And don’t forget the gravy!

Buffalo Chicken Casserole
We took the classic flavors of Buffalo wings—hot sauce, blue cheese, carrots and celery—and created a finger-licking-good casserole. Serve this dish during football season to a hungry crowd and it’s sure to be a hit. We don’t typically recommend ingredients by brand name, but in this case we make an exception for Frank’s RedHot Sauce. It has the perfect balance of spice and tang for this casserole. Texas Pete and Crystal hot sauces are suitable alternatives if you can’t find Frank’s……..

 

Slow-Cooker Stout and Chicken Stew
Chicken thighs can take plenty of cooking without getting tough or drying out, which makes them perfect for the slow cooker. Here we braise them in Guinness stout along with hearty vegetables, with just the right amount of bacon for added savoriness……

 

Quick Shrimp Enchilada Bake
Shrimp enchiladas offer a taste of coastal Mexican cuisine but some versions contain so much cheese, butter and sour cream that they can pack a whopping 50 grams of fat per serving. Our version has vibrant flavor and only half the calories and 6 grams of fat per serving, plus we use precooked peeled shrimp so you can get the dish on your table fast enough for a weeknight supper. The addition of refried beans helps makes these enchiladas an excellent source of fiber as well…….

Save some money, fill that freezer…….

 

A full freezer is more economical to run as the cold air doesn’t need to circulate so much, so less power is needed. If you have lots of space free, fill plastic bottles half full with water and use them to fill gaps. Alternatively, fill the freezer with everyday items you’re bound to use.

An Apple a day……

 

Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

Buying Crabs…..

 

If you like the white meat from the claws, buy a male crab. For the rich pink coral from inside the body shell, choose a female.
