I recently discovered grilled veggies! While shopping at my local grocery store, I noticed some delicious looking grilled veggies on the hot bar and decided to try them out. They made a great low carb side dish! I served mine with jerk seasoned chicken thighs and had leftovers the next day at lunch. Determined to recreate this dish, I tried grilling my own veggies and really like the results.
Keep in mind you must slice dense vegetables (like carrots, squash and potatoes) thin in order for them to cook completely on the grill. You may want to pre cook these veggies if you prefer thicker slices. These veggies go well with so many entrees and they are a great way to add variety to a low carb diet.
