21 May Grilled Vegetables
Posted at 03:46h
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!
Cut eggplant into slices, layer the slices in a colander, sprinkling each layer lightly with a little salt. Let drain for 30 minutes.

Rinse eggplant under cold water, thoroughly pat dry.
Lightly brush all the vegetables with oil.
Cook the vegetables on a hot grill plate for 10 minutes or until tender-crisp.
In a bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper; whisk in basil, then the oil in a steady stream.
Pour over grilled vegetables, tossing gently to coat.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours.
