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.

The flavor of these Brussels sprouts is amazing!  I love ginger and garlic together, and combined with the smoky flavor of the grill, so tasty!

Check out all of the other great veggie recipes and come back tomorrow for a great no-fuss appetizer.

    I think I need to give brussel sprouts another chance!

  2. I agree with Emily .. they deserve at least 1 more chance .. this looks delicious! 

  3. Lesa, I adore brussel sprouts.  They are one of my absolute favorite vegetables.  I am on a very limited diet and these I can eat!  I will be making them soon.  Thanks for sharing.

  4. I've never tried brussels sprouts on the grill. That's an awesome idea!
