COOKING VEGETABLES ON BLACKSTONE GRIDDLE

Preheat the flat top griddle on medium-high heat (400ºF to 425ºF). Use an infrared temperature gun to check the heat (the one we use is linked).

Prepare the vegetables while the grill is preheating. 

Chop the vegetables into bite-sized pieces, about 1 inch. Add them to a large bowl, and toss them with melted butter and all-purpose seasoning.

Season the grill with enough olive oil to prevent sticking. Add the vegetables to the griddle.

Pro tip: To get that smoky flavor, do not move the vegetables for 2-3 minutes before flipping. This will allow a little charring to occur and provide even more flavor.

Flip the vegetables with a long metal spatula. Cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes more. 

Then test the zucchini and asparagus by piercing them with a fork. If the fork slides in easily then the zucchini and asparagus are ready.

Taste to check for seasoning, and add more if needed before serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

What main dishes go with Blackstone vegetables?

Then, add the softer vegetables like asparagus, onions, broccoli, zucchini, and bell pepper on Blackstone griddle.
