Fall grilling

Best vegetables for fall grilling

LOS ANGELESSeptember 17, 2012 — The end of summer is here and although a chill may be creeping into the air, there’s still time to grill.  Here are the top 10 vegetables to cook on the grill for fall:
1. Belgium Endive- This delicate lettuce is simple to cook. Slice it in half, lightly gloss the cut side with canola oil and season it with salt and pepper. Quickly sear it on the grill.  Add fall flavors by tossing the grilled endive with blue cheese, walnuts, red onion and a final touch of a citrus dressing.

2. Red Onion- Red onion is a versatile vegetable. To grill red onion it’s best to cut it into wedges or circles. The trick is to cut them about 1 ½ to 2 inches thick so the onion doesn’t fall through the grate and it doesn’t disappear while it’s cooking. Red onion is delicious served with grilled red meats.
3. Delicata Squash- Squash is almost always cooked in the oven but you can also cook it on the grill.  However, it does take a bit of patience.  Cut the squash into half rings (remove the seeds and keep the skin on). Lightly coat both sides with canola  oil and season them with salt and pepper. Cook the squash at medium high heat and keep the lid closed as much as possible. You want to grill the squash until they’re cooked through (you can also seal the squash in foil and let them steam for a few extra minutes to make sure they are soft enough). Squash is delicious served as a side dish tossed with toasted pine nuts.
