Tired of the same old barbeque foods? Spice up your fare with grilled fruits and vegetables.
Add flavor to your meal by cooking vegetables right on the grill. Baste firm vegetables like peppers, corn, eggplant or onions. Season them with herbs and place on a hot grill until they are tender and brown, usually about 10 to 15 minutes.
Or try sliced zucchini, tomatoes and carrots. Place them on heavy-duty foil and sprinkle with a little water and seasoning. Wrap the foil and grill six to eight minutes or until vegetables are tender.
To add more flavor, choose your favorite fruits and create fruit kabobs. Grill fruit kabobs on low heat until the fruit is hot and slightly golden.
With the abundance of produce available this time of year, it's easy to consume the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
