New Country Grilled Vegetables – Cooking Up the Radio Dial (Part 6).

Dish: Grilled Vegetables
Station: 95.3 FM
Music Genre: New Country

Grilled vegetables always make for a tasty side dish. Except they’re not much fun to cook on the barbecue when the temperature outside is beginning to dip below freezing. That’s when you improvise and do the grilling in your oven or on an indoor grill.

That’s what I did this week as I stepped back into the kitchen cooking along to the tunes playing on my radio. The stop this week on my radio dial was New Country 95.3 FM…Yee-haw. Listening to this music made me think of how I would write this recipe in new country terms. Hold on folks cause you’re in for rootin’ tootin’ good cooking time.

New Country Grilled Vegetables
Fire up the Chevy and take the back road on over to the local grocer.

Round up some bell peppers, zucchini, mushrooms and red onions. Head back to your humble abode on the Chattahoochiee.

While you’re listening to “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” chop the veggies into equal sized pieces and toss them into a large bowl.

Tap your boots to that new country sound, drizzle the veggies with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Pleasantly surprise your man or woman by adding a good sprinkle of Italian seasoning to the vegetable mixture. Give it a mix.

Spread the veggies out on a roasting pan or indoor grill like their ready to do a line dance.
Broil in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes or grill on an indoor grill until vegetables are downright tender. Serve and enjoy as the sun goes down.

I had a good ole time cooking to that new country sound but I can only give the experience three song notes out of five because my Chevy broke down, my sweetheart lost her way home and a tear fell in my beer and spoiled the whole thing. Oh well…Cook-On Partners!
