It's Day Two of the Fourth of July Blog Hop Series, hosted by Savannah of Hammock Tracks.
Today we are talking veggies. I love finding ways to grill veggies in the summertime. It's a great way to switch things up and make veggies more interesting to your kids. I saw this recipe for grilled Brussels sprouts and couldn't wait to try it. My family likes Brussels sprouts, but only if they are roasted, never steamed or boiled. I was pretty sure that grilling them would be similar enough to roasting that they would like them. Then adding a ginger garlic marinade to them? Amazing.
Grilled Garlic Ginger Brussels Sprouts
1 lb. Brussels Sprouts, halved, ends trimmed, outer leaves removed
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp minced ginger root
2 tsp Kosher salt
Preheat grill to medium.
Combine the oil, garlic, ginger, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Set aside.
Cook the Brussels sprouts in the microwave for 2 minutes, to get them ready to grill. Toss
Brussels sprouts into marinade and let sit for 10 minutes, tossing a few times while they do.
Thread Brussels sprouts onto wooden skewers. Grill for 5-8 minutes, turning to evenly char the outsides of each sprout.
Makes 4 servings.
In the recipe above, I call for halving the sprouts. They were still a little bit firm on the inside, so I think halving them would cook them through better.
