Grill pans are a great alternative for vegetables and fruit because they go right on the stovetop, so try learning how to grill vegetables without a grill.

Ingredients

  • For spice mix
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • For vegetables
  • Corn, shucked
  • Zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • Yellow squash, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • Medium to large tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch-thick
  • Bell peppers, cut into 3-inch wide strips
  • Olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat a grill pan on the stove over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper
  3. Toss the vegetables in olive oil and the spice mix.
  4. To know if the grill pan is hot enough, flick a little water on it. The water should sizzle and steam on contact.
  5. Start by grilling a zucchini or squash slice or a pepper to test the temperature of the pan.
  6. Adjust the heat of the burner as necessary.
  7. Continue grilling the vegetables, making sure not to crowd the pan.
  8. Suggested grilling times:
     
    Corn: Grill the corn turning as you see grill marks on the cob, about 10-12 minutes.
  9. Zucchini and yellow squash: Grill the zucchini and squash about 3-4 minutes per side until grill marks appear.
  10. Bell peppers and tomatoes: Grill the peppers and tomatoes about 2-3 minutes per side until grill marks appear.
