Welcome to my recipe blog. I created this blog so I could share my high calorie recipes. My daughter, Rachel, has CF and I'm always looking for recipes loaded with calories. I hope you see a recipe you'll want to try. Happy browsing.

Grilled Mixed Veggies

Ok, so, ever since I got a grill pan, I've been grilling up veggies like crazy.  If you don't have a grill pan, I' say "add it to you Christmas list".  Also, you can always use the same ingredients, but bake or broil instead of grill.  It makes a really nice side dish at supper.  I know this isn't exactly super high calories, but I think for veggies, it was worth posting. 

Grilled Mixed Veggies

Ingredients -

  1. 1 med. zucchini
  2. 1 med. yellow squash
  3. 8 baby red potatoes
  4. 8 white button mushrooms
  5. 1 T. McCormick Perfect Pinch Vegetable Seasoning
  6. 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil  (4 T.)
You don't have to have exact...this is what I used the last time I made it & calculated the calories according to what I used.

Directions -

  1. Boil potatoes whole for roughly 5-7 minutes.  Then remove from pot and cut in half.
  2. Cut up the mushrooms and squash....anyway you like! (I cut the mushrooms in half, squash and zucchini in thick slices) 
  3. Put all the veggies in a med/large bowl.  Add the seasoning and the oil.   Toss to evenly coat. 
  4. Cook on a grill pan over a med/med-high heat.  Word of warning....if you're not careful you can easily smoke up the house!  Been there; done that. lol
  5. Cook until you have nice grill marks on both sides and are cooked to your preferred "doneness".  *I cook mine until they are a little soft/ a little firm. 
*I love to cook asparagus this way too & they cook up in no time flat!

Not exactly sure on the amount of serving but I'd say at least 5.

Calories - per batch - ~1064
if we say 5 servings- per serving - ~213
