Grilled Vegetables by him!


My contribution to this recipe is just the photography...the rest was taken care of  by my dear hubby.

Grilled Vegetables is one dish we have been having pretty often in times recent, especially on the weekends. Its simple, quick to make, very healthy and delicious too. Sometimes we gratin it with cheese, sometimes without and the choice of vegetables depend on what's seasonal, fresh and available in the pantry :-) 


This goes to His Cooking Event at Indian Khana. Thanks a lot for hosting such a fun event. I enjoyed it :-)



Ingredients

1 - carrot, scraped and chopped
1 - zucchini, chopped
1 - eggplant medium size, chopped
2 - potatoes, chopped
1 - tomato, chopped
2 - green chillies, finely chopped (more or less)
2 1/2 tbsp - ginger, finely chopped
1 - red pepper small, deseeded and chopped
1 - onion, chopped
1/4 cup - brocolli
4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tsp - dried italian herbs (more or less)
1/8 tsp - citric acid
a generous sprinkling of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
100 grams - cheddar cheese, grated
50 grams - parmesan cheese, grated

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degree C.
  2. Mix together the cut vegetables, olive oil and the spices in a baking dish. Sprinkle the cheese on the top.
  3. Place the baking tray in the center of the oven and bake for approx 20 minutes. Toss them a couple of times in between. 
  4. Serve hot.


    The colours are a treat for the eyes and add to the appeal of the dish...as the Germans say "Das Auge isst mit" - the eyes eat also, loosely translated :-) 



    Together with organic whole wheat bread, the dish is a complete meal. 


    Enjoy!
