Grilled Vegetables

We all know how vital veggies are to our every-day nutrition. But as we aim to get a range of colours and variety in our veg, it is fun to serve them in fresh, tasty ways to keep things interesting. We love grilling a range of different veggies and having them ready to add to salads. Try them on top of sourdough with a touch of hummus for a healthy snack and they will become a firm favourite!
