Something New to Grill – Carrots!

I love grilling season and have tried several things when it comes to veg.  The normal things like corn, peppers, onions.  Love grilling mushrooms but I came across a post by Farm to Table Life for grilled carrots

I was intrigued.  And as they said in their post, why haven’t I tried this before?  And I’m also wondering what else I can grill.

Mix a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, and some chopped rosemary.  Season with salt and pepper.  Wash and dry the carrots.  Lightly coat the carrots with the marinade.  Heat the grill to about 350F/175C.

Grill until it is cooked the way you like.  Some like them firm like I do and some like it cooked much softer.  Do turn them as they cook keeping in mind that smaller ones will cook faster.

Serve immediately.  I really enjoyed this and will make it again. And the colours really pop.  What do you grill that might be unusual?

  1. Romaine lettuce at the height of summer (along with scallions and bread for a grilled Caesar)! Love the look of the grilled carrots!

  2. Grilled carrots are wonderful. Just this summer I realized that boiling them (whole) first helps to cook the center so grilling time isn’t so long and they are less charred. I love your colorful bunch! And we grill spring onions too. Same thing, just brush olive oil on them and grill. We serve them long and uncut with grilled chicken or steak. You’ll love them!

  3. What a great idea! I was at a dinner party Sunday night and the talk tuned to carrots, believe it or not, with everyone describing their favorite way of preparing them. No one mentioned grilling. I wish I had seen this before that party. I would have been crowned Carrot King — or something like that, I’m sure. 🙂
