FUN MONDAY - Favourite recepe



Sayre is our host this week, and I thank her very much without her the chain would have been broken because there were no volonteer at all ! The challenge is easy for most of us who love cooking, less for those who don't like to cook ! She said :

What I want from you is a step-by-step guide (pictures encouraged) for making your favorite summertime dish. This can be an entree, a vegetable, a casserole, or a dessert. Hopefully it will be quick and easy so we can spend August playing more and cooking less!

Cooking was my hobby when I was in my 30th/40th, I loved to eat a plate I didn't know at all, find out the ingredients just by tasting and then try to cook exactly the same plate at home. Mr. G was my guinea pig and he loved it.

But after 40 years of cooking, I found other interests. There was a time I really hated it. Now I found a way to cook healthy, good and always things which don't take time.

Here is one of my favourite plate, grilled vegetables. The recepee is very easy.

Take your husband or partner and ask him to cut green, red and yellow pepper, zucchinis and/or eggplants into slices, while you answer your the comments on your blog. (in case you are retired)

Put all the vegetables together on a plate. Throw some olive oil over it, garlic and basil and put it in the oven and let it grill. When it's half done add salt, not before because salt takes out all the juice of the vegetables. While it cooks you can continue to blog (for example).

You can serve this plate with a steak, chicken or fish and a fresh french bread or a ciabatta.

and ready

I love those easy healthy recipes, Except I would have to find a substitute for the capsicum. BB doesn't like it and I am not fussed about it.

Excellent recipe...I will follow it to the letter! Especially the blogging part!

Karmyn R said...

Grilled!!! Good plan and so easy. Looks yummy.

Faye said...

I love it! Grilled vegetables take two people--a slicer to stand in while the "cook" tends to her other pot--answering blog comments! As you say, Gattina--one of the perks of being retired. In the winter do you do the same to root vegetables?

That is so easy!
And I can blog and comment while my hubby prepares it. :D

Sayre said...

Now THAT'S a recipe I can handle in the summer!!! Looks so good!

Melli said...

YUM!!! That looks sooooooooo good! I would be eating it by myself of course because Dennis will not touch a pepper or anything that HAS touched a pepper! LOL! But I could do it when the kids are here - the girls and Mathew would love it!

Puss-in-Boots said...

Oh yum, I do like the look of that, Gattina. I'm definitely going to try that one.

I'm glad you get Mr G to do all the hard work while you're doing your hard work...lol!
