Primavera Mixed Grill


As Summer draws to a close and gardens aren't producing quite as much anymore we wind up with a lot of "ones" and "twos" of things. Not enough for a meal, but certainly not wanting to go to waste, what do we DO with all these odds and ends?

Primavera Mixed Grill!

Not only does this SUPER easy recipe make a Lean and Green meal that is delicious and bountiful, it cooks up in one basket with no mess and no heating up the house.

Primavera Mixed Grill is also one of my "Little Black Dress Recipes" - that is, a recipe with basic ingredients that you can mix and match with hundreds of combinations of Stacey Hawkins Spices & Oils to yield many different flavor results. A few of my favorites?

  • Roasted Garlic Oil, Mediterranean Seasoning, Dash of Desperation
  • Valencia Orange Oil, Tasty Thai Seasoning (or Wok On)
  • Luscious Lemon Oil, Citrus Dill Seasoning, Dash of Desperation
  • Roasted Garlic Oil, Garlic & Spring Onion

Truthfully, the combinations are endless! The flavors will be changed as well by the combination of vegetables you choose. The truth is, it really doesn't matter WHAT you use (as long as you follow guidelines if you're on Optavia 5&1 ) and the more color, the better!

In my mix above, I used red and green peppers, yellow squash, onion, and carrots from my garden (I've transitioned to carrots are ok- but substitute something else if you're on 5 &1). As you can see the colors are absolutely gorgeous, before AND after cooking!

The key to cooking this perfectly is to chop everything the same size.
