Description

Grilling imparts a delicious smoky flavor and a touch of caramelized sweetness to fresh produce. Here you'll find tips and timings for a few of our favorites.

 

  1. Asparagus

    Time: 7 to 10 minutes

    Snap off and discard woody stems. Brush spears with oil and lay them across the bars of the grate. Grill over medium heat, turning occasionally.

  2. Pineapple

    Time: 4 minutes per side

    Toss slices or wedges in a little lemon, lime, or orange juice. Grill over medium-low heat, watching closely. Grilling caramelizes the sugars and reduces the fruit's acid giving you a sweet and smoky pineapple flavor.

  3. Baby Bella Mushrooms

    Time: 5 to 7 minutes per side

    Marinate baby bella mushrooms in a mixture of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, and steak seasoning. Grill over medium heat for a smoky flavor, turning once.

  4. Mangoes

    Time: 4 to 7 minutes

    Peel and cut mango to remove the seed. Brush with oil and grill over low heat until golden brown.

  5. Bananas

    Time: 1 to 2 minutes

    Cut unpeeled bananas lenghtwise from tip to tip. Brush cut sides with melted butter and grill over low heat. Watch closely as the pieces caramelize quickly.

  6. Corn on the Cob

    Time: 8 to 12 minutes

    Remove husks and silk from corn. Brush each ear with olive oil or melted butter. Place corn over direct heat, turning occasionally.

  7. Bell Peppers

    Time: 3 to 5 minutes per side

    Halve peppers and discard stems and seeds. Brush with oil and desired seasonings. Grill over medium heat until charred on the outside and smoky and soft on the inside.

     

  8. Sweet Potatoes

    Time: 10 to 12 minutes

    Peel and cut potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick slices; toss in olive oil and desired seasonings. Grill over medium heat until crispy on the outside and creamy and caramel-like on the inside.

  9. Russet Potatoes

    Time: 40 minutes

    Cut into wedges and toss in olive oil and desired seasonings. Grill over indirect heat until tender. Move to direct heat and grill over medium heat, turning occasionally until browned on all sides.

  10. Green Onions

    Time: 6 to 8 minutes
    Trim onions leaving some of the green tops. Brush with olive oil and lay them across the bars of the grate. Grill over medium heat until slightly charred; turning occasionally.
