Veggies on the Grill and Radishes Two Ways

After what seems like the longest winter in history, we’ve been able to enjoy our grill back-to-back weekends. Last weekend, we tested some recipes for Third Coast Living and last night we broke out our grilling planks and made our entire meal on the grill.

Bryan made juicy and delicious bone-in chicken breasts on a cedar grilling plank. He also diced up a potato, sliced an onion and halved radishes and mixed in olive oil, pea shoots, mustard greens, radish greens and salt and pepper together in a foil packet. They were quite tasty. The pea shoots, mustard greens and radish greens were picked from our indoor greenhouse.

We also grilled a mixture of veggies that were tossed in a marinade of 18 year-old balsamic vinegar, olive oil and Dijon mustard.

Ingredients for two:

  • Half bunch of asparagus, cleaned
  • 1/4 C. baby carrots
  • 1/2 summer squash, sliced into 3-4 inch wedges
  • 10-12 radishes, halved

Marinade mix:

  • 1 t. Dijon mustard
  • 1 T. 18 year-old balsamic vinegar (yes, age makes a difference)
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

I tossed the veggies in a bowl with the marinade and let it sit for 15 minutes. Bryan put it on our veggie grill sheet in a 400 degree grill for 10 minutes.

To serve, salt and pepper to taste and grate Parmigiana-Reggiano over the top.

A note about the radishes – we’ve roasted radishes in the oven, grilled them in the mixture above and included them in the foil packet and, my favorite way to make them has been the foil packet method. There’s nothing wrong with eating raw radishes with a little bit of sea salt sprinkled on them, but for a milder flavor, try adding them to your foil potato packet and let us know what you think.
