3 Ways to Cook Veggies on a Gas Grill

3 Ways to Cook Veggies on a Gas Grill | Chef South Africa | Blog

With 3 way to cook veggies on a gas grill, you can cook up an entire feast on a Chef gas grill, with a range of veggie dishes. Whether you’re enjoying a Meatless Monday meal or you’re simply wanting to add a few tasty sides to your braai meat, cooking veggies on a gas grill is easy. In this guide, we share some of the quickest, tastiest, simplest ways to cook veggie dishes on your grill.

Cooking Veggies on a Gas Grill

Here are just a few ways that you can cook veggies on your Chef gas grill.

1/ Skewered

Kebabs are an extremely easy way to not only cook veggies, but also meat, chicken and other food. You can skewer a selection of veggies on their own or layer veggies with pork, beef or chicken. You can even use firm tofu if you’re aiming for a plant-based braai. The trick to making perfectly skewered vegetables is to choose your veggies carefully and make sure that cubes or slices are even. Mixing fast-cooking vegetables with harder vegetables is never a good idea. Instead, choose veggies such as rosa or cherry tomatoes, red or green pepper, mushroom, red onion, zucchini, eggplant, and even pineapple.

2/ Grilled

You can also grill vegetables directly on the BBQ. Corn is always a classic. Eggplant and larger sized zucchini are also good for grilling. Carrots can be surprisingly tasty on the grill, while large braai mushrooms, artichokes, fresh asparagus, and bell peppers are also great for grilling. You can even make cauliflower steaks on your grill. Like skewered veggies, you want to go for veggies that will cook quickly and easily. Make sure that your vegetables are sliced or cut into larger pieces that are not too thin to avoid burning. 

3/ Stuffed

Stuffed vegetables generally take a little longer, depending on what you’re stuffing. A South African classic is the braai butternut, which is hollowed out and stuffed with feta cheese, garlic, onion and herbs. You can also stuff potatoes (sweet potato or regular), gem squash, big mushrooms, eggplant, and whole peppers. As a general rule of thumb, squash and potatoes will need to stay on the grill longer. Faster cooking vegetables should be checked often to prevent overcooking. The best way to cook stuffed vegetables on the grill is to prepare and stuff with your chosen filling, cover with foil and then place on the grill. You can turn them over a few times to make sure that everything is evenly cooked.
