Grilled Veggie Skewers

When making veggie skewers on a Weber grill, preparing the vegetables properly is important to ensure a delicious outcome. Start by preheating the grill to a medium-high heat. While the grill is heating up, prepare the vegetables by cutting them into uniform sizes. Uniform sizes will help you cook the veggies evenly.  Feel free to try a variety of vegetables, such as peppers, kohlrabi, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and onions. Once the vegetables are prepped, marinate them in your favorite seasoning and oil for 15-20 minutes to infuse them with flavor.

Next, thread the marinated vegetables onto skewers, leaving a little space between each piece for even cooking. Place the skewers on the preheated grill for about 10-15 minutes. Turn them occasionally until the vegetables are tender and have a slight char. You can also brush the skewers with a balsamic glaze during the last few minutes of grilling for an extra layer of flavor. Once cooked to your desired doneness, remove the skewers from the grill and serve them with pesto or your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy your delicious and colorful veggie skewers straight from the Weber grill!

Grilled Stuffed Peppers

Grilled stuffed peppers are a delightful vegetarian option for outdoor cooking on a Weber grill. To prepare these savory treats, combine cooked rice, beans, corn, diced vegetables, and your favorite seasonings to create a flavorful filling. Carefully cut the peppers, remove the seeds, and generously stuff them with the prepared mixture. Once assembled, place the stuffed peppers on the preheated Weber grill and cook them until the peppers are somewhat tender (but not soft) and the filling is thoroughly heated.

Corn on the Cob

My absolute favorite way to prepare corn on the cob is on my Weber grill. To get started, I preheat the grill to medium-high heat, which ensures that the corn cooks evenly and gets those delicious grill marks. While the grill is heating up, I carefully peel back the husks of the corn. You can keep them on or remove them completely. After removing the silk, I back up the husks, keeping the corn covered and protected while it grills.

Once the corn is prepared, I place it on the preheated grill and cook it for about 15-20 minutes, turning it occasionally to ensure even cooking. I love the charred flavor that develops as the kernels become tender. I sometimes brush the corn with seasoned butter or sprinkle it with my favorite seasonings while grilling to elevate the flavor. When the corn is done, I remove it from the grill and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. The result is delicious grilled corn on the cob that’s perfect for enjoying as a side dish or a standalone snack.
