Recipe Roundup: Summer Time Grilling
Move over meat – it’s time to grill some fruit and vegetables. Vegetables cook quickly and are so yummy with just a hint of smoke from the grill. In honor of the first official week of Summer, we thought we would put together a compilation of our farm’s favorite summer go-to grill recipes. Feel free to share some of your favorite grill recipes in the comments below.
GRILLED STONE FRUIT
Plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots and pluots are all delicious grilled. Add to a green salad, serve over Greek yogurt and drizzle with honey, or with vanilla ice cream and a reduction of balsamic vinegar. Click here for the recipe.
GRILLED BABY BOK CHOY
Boiling or steaming bok choy often results in a watery, stringy vegetable. But grilling halved heads of bok choy slathered with miso butter leads to pure flavor. Be sure to keep the heat at medium so the paste can caramelize without burning. Our first few attempts at grilling bok choy (we used Shanghai bok choy) resulted in charred leaves that were too crisp to enjoy. Now we separate the leaves from the stalks and use them raw in a salad that wilts under the heat of the grilled vegetable. Use white or yellow miso paste in this recipe. If you use a darker miso, know that it will be saltier. Make this side dish when you are already firing up the grill for the main course. Click here for the recipe.
