Great made on the grill

Sometimes called a hobo meal, food cooked in foil on the grill (or campfire to be truly hobo) is a great way to prepare a meal. Sher and I especially like a mix of lots of different ingredients.

One of our favorite grilled meals is a mix of potatoes, onions, carrots, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, and squash. Eggplant and cucumber also work well. Simple to make, easy to cook.

Finished product: hot and healthy






Preparation is simply cutting the ingredients into small pieces. Once all are cut, put into a large mixing bowl. Add a couple of tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil or a quick spray with same. Mix well to give everything a very light coating. Put the resulting mix on foil, fold to seal. Then put a secondย layer of foil around the package. Cook on the grill for 12 to 15 minutes, flip over and cook another 12 to 15 minutes. Cook on “medium” heat. We make enough to have leftovers, this recipe heats well in the microwave.

  1. A vegetable paradise. In Italian we make what is called a “giambotta” which is zucchini, eggplant, onion, garlic and tomatoes, all simmered for hours and hours. Makes the house smell great and tastes just as good.
