Sometimes the simplest recipes have the most flavor, like this mixed vegetable grill. Using ripe, in season ingredients guarantees delicious results.
This simply seasoned mixed vegetable grill recipe was shared with us by McCormick and registered dietitian Wendy Bazilian. “Adding spices and herbs is easy to do, and they only cost pennies per serving,” says Bazilian. “You can also dial up the flavor depending on the cooking method.” In this recipe, grilling the vegetables gives a smoky, charred flavor.
To add flavor to everyday vegetable favorites like zucchini and carrots, Bazilian recommends an easy rule of thumb: start with 1/4 teaspoon of spices and herbs, such as basil and oregano, per cup of veggies, along with a splash of citrus juice or olive oil. This mixed vegetable grill recipe uses a combination of garlic, basil, and black pepper, but McCormick offered this fun chart with other recommended flavor combinations.
