The Secret to Getting More Veggies on Your Family’s Plate!

The Secret to Getting More Veggies on Your Family’s Plate!

It may be autumn, however, firing up the grill is definitely a year-round activity in our home! Not only is grilled food fast and easy, but it’s also delicious!

Like many families, it can be a challenge to get my kids to eat their veggies. My secret for cooking better tasting veggies {that kids of all ages enjoy} is to brush them with a quick-n-easy herb seasoning and then toss them on the grill.

Grilled veggies almost always get a higher thumbs-up rating because the caramelizing flames and touch of smoke from grilling does wonders for enhancing flavor. Plus, you can use that already preheated grill to make a delicious main dish like Grilled Herb Chicken, Grilled Turkey Breasts, or a melt-in-your-mouth Grilled Grassfed Steak!

One of the easiest veggies to grill is summer squash. Although the season for this popular veggie starts in the summer, it typically grows well into October. Of course, in many markets throughout the U.S., you can find this mild, yet tasty veggie year-round. Of course, there’s so lots of other healthy veggies that taste wonderful grilled like bell peppers, asparagus, carrots, onions and more!

Ready to fire-up your grill and get more veggies on your family’s plates?! First, mix-up this simple seasoning mix we’re sharing below. It’s perfect for enhancing the fresh flavors of your favorite veggies, making them so irresistibly-good, even the picky eaters in your home may find themselves asking for seconds. Yay!

P.S. This flavorful seasoning mix is not only great for veggies, it’s also perfect for seasoning poultry, fish and meats! That’s why, during the holiday season, we make up big batches of this tasty seasoning mix to give as gifts to friends, along with recipe cards with ideas for using it. (Check out “Season’s Greetings” for the recipe.)
