Summer is a time for friends, family, food, and fun. As such, grilling on the barbecue is one of the most popular summer past times. There is something special about food off of the grill which perfectly embodies the spirit of summer.
When you bring up the term “grilling” it makes you think of hamburgers and steaks in the vast majority of cases. These are perennial favorites, because the meat comes out crisp and smoky and delicious. That being said, there is not a shortage of other things that you can cook on the grill. Here are some of the popular favorites:
Vegetables-Veggies can be grilled just like meat, in order to sear them and char them enough to add wonderful taste. There is no shortage to the type of veggies that you can use. Indeed, you can throw on tomatoes and peppers and zucchini and many others all together or separately. This will add a bit of crunch to the veggies, and will bring out some good flavors from them which would otherwise be locked away.
Fruit-Believe it or not, you can also grill fruits! While your preference will be based on personal taste and feelings on the matter, it is perfectly possible to do. A great choice to try out is grilling pineapple! A popular staple of Brazilian cooking, grilled pineapple tastes great and is easy to do! Simply sear the fruit until browned on both sides,and enjoy the smoky sweet treat you just made.
Grilling is a great pastime because anyone can do it, it takes a long time to master, and there is an almost limitless amount of ways that you can cook. When it all comes down to it, your expressiveness will translate into your cooking, making something powerful and tasty to eat.
