Being creative on the grill

Last time, as I took veggies from the fridge for the kabobs, I remembered that I had fresh pears that woulodn't stay fresh forever .. so I chunked them, skewered them, and grilled them along with everything else. they were GREAT!

Then, last night, I realized that we had some leftover apples..and hence, baked apples on the grill were born.

Anyone else ?

Any grilled stone fruit is great! serve with a little ice cream and maybe some sweet wine drizzled on it.

Last year Kathleen talked me into grilling a head of romaine. It smelled like pot while cooking, but the charred leaves we pretty good.

It would be interesting to have an example of something that wasn't good cooked by grilling. Okay maybe ice cream or something that melts.

I've cooked almost every vegetable I like on the grill, to good results. Okay I admit I never thought of romaine lettuce. I think cabbage would be good. I've heard of baking kale.

I routinely cook almost any vegetable on the grill. I usually like the same vegetables raw, so raw + warm is good too. Some of them soften and they're good too: zucchini, cucumbers, mushrooms. Sometimes the vegetables need more cooking to be palatable: potatoes, yams.

@ Cerise, I like bok choy in salads (and of course in stir fries). Grilling them could only be good!

We put fresh pineapple on our kabobs, and marinate them with franks red hot. The spicy sweet grilled pineapple is sooooo good!

Oh, and big rounds of pineapple sprinkled with butter and brown sugar! Will have to try the Franks!
