Vegetable Stir Fry on the Grill

 
This is a recipe that is more for inspiration than detailed instructions, because you can use whatever vegetables you like and basically cooking time depends on the temperature of your grill and how well you like them done. I usually find that you can never make too much. Everyone gravitates toward the colorful display that is quite a random mix. I will try my best to remember this one. I did not add red onion in this one, but that would have been a good addition to the flavor.
Ingredients:
  • 1 small eggplant (optional)
  • a handful of pea pods
  • 1 small green zucchini
  • 1 small yellow zucchini
  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 1 baby bok choy
  • 1 red onion  
  • 4 - 5 cloves garlic
  • drizzle olive oil - maybe 4 Tbsp
  • I don't have it in this mix, but asparagus is a great addition
Method:
  1. Chop up eggplant and cover in salted water for at least 1/2 hour, until ready to grill.
  2. Slice the rest of the vegetables and set aside until ready to grill.
  3. Drain egg plant and place in vegetable grilling basket to get a head start.
  4. In the meantime, mix the rest of the veggies, except for the bok choy, with olive oil and crushed garlic
  5. Add to egg plant in grilling basket after about 5 - 10 minutes. Cook, stirring often, for about 20 - 30 minutes, adding sliced bok choy for final 5 minutes. Serve hot or room temperature.

  1. I can attest to the fact that this dish is delicious! And I agree that asparagus is a great addition. I really must get myself a grilling basket to recreate this dish at my house.

    1. Grilling baskets come in a variety of shapes, depending on what you use them for, whether it is fish or vegetables... for vegetables I like to use one that looks like a wok (with non stick finish) and holes in it. They are reasonably priced at stores such as Homesense, Canadian Tire or any Home goods store and places where you would get your grill or grilling supplies.
      You can also do the vegetables in an aluminum foil or parchment paper lined pan in the oven. . . stirring them every once in a while.

  3. We love grill stir frys too!!! I sometimes sprinkle the oiled veggies with a bit of seasoning salt as well. I finally invested in a good stove top cast iron wok and am anxious to try it out - especially with the zucchini season upon us.

  5. I've been roasting vegetables for a couple of years now and am finding that almost every vegetable works well on the grill. I have two grill baskets - one square and one in a wok shape. Both work equally well. They are not really baskets but look like pans with holes in them.

  6. Printed this recipe off and took it with me grocery shopping only to find the ingredients were missing. Looks like they don't print. At least with this recipe you can do most any veggies and I did - very yummy!! ...but just so you know. Thanks for all the great recipes!

    1. I'm sorry about the ingredients not printing. Unfortunately this is something that we cannot control. It is simply a free service and has glitches we can't do anything about on our end.
