TGI Friday’s Vegetable Grill

Portabella mushroom

Remove stem from mushroom and discard. Rinse mushroom with cold water. Add your favorite vinaigrette dressing – just enough to fill the bottom of the mushroom cap; marinate for one hour.

Place mushroom on grill, cap side up. Grill until tender.

Red peppers – wash and dry, cut into large squares
Zucchini – wash and dry, cut into large round slices, about 3 inches thick
Summer squash – wash and dry, cut into large round slices, about 4 inches thick
Roma tomato – wash and dry, remove core and discard, cut in V wedges

Use bamboo or wood skewers – soak in water for 30 minutes before use so skewers do not burn on the grill or splinter.

Assemble skewers in color array such as – red pepper, zucchini, Roma tomato, squash. When assembling, place vegetable flat on cutting board and insert skewer through skin side and out through skin side for a flat long skewer of fresh vegetables. Grill until vegetables are just tender and slightly crunchy.


Cook your favorite thin long pasta, such as spaghetti, in salted boiling water and place in dish.
