Smoky barbecued vegetables

    50 min

    While you can get some smoked flavour by adding wet wood chips to the hot coals, you can get much more flavour using an electric smoker. Serve these veggies as a side to your steak, or assemble into a wonderful roasted veggie sandwich.

    Excellent side dish for lots of different entres! I substituted green bell peppers for the eggplant and used one white and one red onion, but everyting else by the recepe. I used a grilling basket on my BBQ so the the smaller pieces didn't fall through the grate. Rave reviews from dinner guests. Now I crave this veggie dish all the time.  -  09 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I tried this recipe last night on my charcoal grill accompanied by grilled chicken. I placed the vegetable pieces on skewers and slowly cooked them on the grill, basting frequently with teriyaki sauce. The taste was delicious! We will definetly try this again!  -  14 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made these several times now. They are very good. We vary the vegetables based on what is in season.  -  06 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
