No-meat mixed grillAn easy and tasty way to cook vegetables.

Preparation and cooking times:

Cook 30 mins.

Ingredients:

  • ½ small sweet potato or 3 medium carrots
  • 1 medium courgette
  • 100g baby leeks , or small ones split in half, or thick asparagus stems
  • 1 small red pepper , seeded, cored and quartered
  • 8 baby baby corn
  • 2 Portobello mushrooms
  • 4-6 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pine nut or sunflower seeds, to serve
  • vinaigrette and soy sauce, to splash over

Method:

  1. Cut the sweet potato or carrots into 1cm-thick slices. Put in a pan with enough water to cover, boil for 2 mins, then drain.
  2. Heat the grill until hot. Line the rack with foil. Cut the courgette in half lengthways, then halve again for quarters. Slash the flesh in a criss-cross pattern.
  3. Line up the potato or carrots, courgettes (cut-side up) and leeks and/or asparagus in the grill pan and brush with oil. Season, then grill on one side for 3-5 mins until browned and just softened – no need to turn. As they cook, remove to a heatproof dish.
  4. Place the remaining vegetables and mushrooms (skin-side up) on the foil, brush with oil, season and cook for about 3-5 mins until softened and browned. Place in the dish and trickle over any cooking juices. Scatter over the nuts or seeds and return the dish to the grill for a minute or two so they lightly toast. Drizzle with a little vinaigrette and soy sauce just before serving.
