Grilling Vegetables without the Grill

Close-up of Vegetables from Farmers Market with Sardine Filet
In Manhattan, outdoor grilling can be a little challenging, unless you are willing to go over to the Hudson River and set up your hibachi.  If you like grilled flavor, without the hassle of setting up the grill, here is an easy alternative for cooking vegetables.  Take your favorite vegetables and cook them on a cast iron skillet with fresh sardines.  The oils from the sardines will make the vegetables crunchy with a flavor that says "hot off the grill".  After you have cooked everything, squeeze on a little lemon juice, then add some sea salt and your favorite fresh herbs.

  1. I have never made Sardines before but tried them and they were fabulous. I loved the idea of grilling them and the sweet potato was great with the texture of the sardines...
