Jammin Jerk Smokey Barbecue Grilled Veggies


It's time to break out the grill pan or fire up the grill! Grilled veggies are great as a main, a side or as a snack. This recipes calls to marinate the veggies, I leave mine to sit over night for maximum flavor. From our kitchen to yours, enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp lime juice

1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce

2 Tbs maple syrup

1/4 tsp allspice

1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger

1 scotch bonnet pepper, minced, seeds removed for less heat

1/2 cup Jammin Jerk Smoky Barbecue Sauce

1 large red onion, sliced about 1/2 inch thick

2 zucchini, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds

1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cut into wedges

8 oz. whole mushrooms

Instructions: In a small mixing bowl, combine the first 9 ingredients. Spread all the veggies out in a baking dish. Pour the sauce over the veggies and let marinate in the refrigerator a few hours to over night.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Working in batches as necessary, grill vegetables until tender and lightly charred on each side, about 4-5 minutes per side. As the veggies are grilling, baste each side with the leftover sauce from marinating.
