Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- Oil – We used olive oil but you can also use any neutral flavored oil you like.
- Vegetables – We used asparagus, zucchini, bell pepper, red onion, and broccoli. But let me tell you, the beauty of this grilled vegetable recipe is that you can use whatever veggies you have on hand!
This is welcome news when you have a surplus of zucchini from your garden. Or when asparagus is in season.
- All-purpose seasoning – You can use store-bought or make your own by mixing your favorite herbs and spices.
- Melted butter – This adds flavor and richness to the vegetables. Use unsalted or salted depending on your preference. You can also use ghee, margarine, or just olive oil as a substitute.
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.
