vegetables for grillingBarbecuing pork, beef, chicken and seafood is definitely great for backyard parties. But if you want to add variety in your menu and make the happening even more delightful for all your loved ones, you should not forget to grill vegetables, too. They are not only healthy but they’re also equally scrumptious! Here are some of the best veggies that you should grill on your La Caja China!

1. Corn

Corn is probably one of your favorites. We know that because it has been a tradition to grill corn to pair with just about anything barbecued. Anyway, most people put the corns on the grill grates without removing the husks. We suggest otherwise. Remove the husks to give your corns a charred flavor then when they’re done, brush butter all over them before serving. It’s heavenly!

2. Potatoes

You can either skewer your potatoes for grilling or smoke them. Either way will surely make them a wonderful side dish to your steak. If you’ll skewer potatoes, make sure that you’ll half boil them first. This way, they won’t get cooked on the outside while leaving the inside undercooked. Smoking potatoes is definitely easy. You’ll have to use your La Caja China pistol smoker and cook your potatoes over indirect heat by putting them in an aluminum dish.

3. Red Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are also popular in barbecue menus. We can probably say that their popularity is due to their crisp texture and sweet juiciness which makes them provide barbecued meat some sort of twist. You can cook bell peppers in whole or you can also slice them into chunky sizes then placed on skewers. Both are great ways to enjoy these colorful treats!

4. Jalapeno

If you’re a pepper lover and looking for something with a stronger kick, try jalapenos! No explanations needed. They’re just so darn delicious they’ll even boost your appetite.

5. Onions

You should grill onions on medium heat only. Otherwise, the outside will burn while the inside doesn’t get cooked. Remember, raw onions have a strong flavor that not everyone loves — especially kids. So cook them perfectly by slicing them in half and then putting them on skewers. In the end, they will taste a little sweet and definitely be enjoyable.

6. Asparagus

Grill your asparagus as is or wrap them first with bacon strips. Yes, the latter is really a treat! We’ve always done that at home. For your dip, mix mayonnaise, garlic and lemon juice and voila! Serve them to your hungry guests.

7. Zucchini

A zucchini is a healthy and yummy summer vegetable that’s related to the squash family. It has a really nice texture and grilling it will certainly give you a mouth-watering bite. Slice zucchinis in planks and then marinate them first before cooking. You can use balsamic vinegar with herbs just to boost their flavor.
