Meatless Monday: BBQ Foil Dinner

July 8, 2013

It’s BBQ season – and that means everything gets barbecued. Even Meatless Monday.

I LOVE barbecued veggies. The best is when they’re slightly soft, but crispy and charred on the outside. I threw together a whole bunch of foil packets of veggies to throw on the grill for dinner.

In one packet I diced onions, and threw some green beans on top with a little olive oil and pepper. In another packet I had sliced red peppers with olive oil. I tossed Kale with a bit of lemon juice and olive oil topped with sea salt. I also diced sweet potato/yam into chunks, tossed them with olive oil and some steak seasoning.

It’s easy, with little prep, little clean up, and you don’t have to ‘watch’ it. Just set the packets on the BBQ over medium/high heat.

The sweet potatoes will take the longest, about 20-30 minutes, so toss them on first, along with the beans. The peppers will take about 15 minutes. Then in the last 10 minutes add the kale.

Start off with the packets of peppers, beans and sweet potato fully closed to get the steam heat, then in the last 10 minutes take off the top so they can get crisp.

Do the kale open, with the foil just folded up on the sides. It should be crisp, like Kale chips. If you need to leave it on a little longer, move the other packets to the top rack on the BBQ.

You can also serve it with a side of Quinoa for extra protein.

    Omg, Lainey is freaking adorable! Look at that little face! Lazy Sundays are the best. Roasted veggies are my fave too – they’re easy, simple and super flavourful. Great photos here, Alicia!
