Fruits and Veggies on the Grill

Grilling Fruit

Grilling fruit on the barbecue not only brings out the natural sweetness of the fruit through caramelization, but also imparts a delicious smoky flavour. Fruit can be grilled using different methods such as on skewers, in grill toppers, in a cast iron frying pan or, if fruit is dense enough, right on the grill.

    Tropical Fruit Kebobs

    Grilled kebabs aren’t just about the meat — these dessert kebabs are made with kiwi, banana, nectarines, strawberries and cubes of pound cake. Warm them up on the barbecue and then serve them with ice cream.

  • Easy
    Grilled Apples

    We marinate apple halves with honey, oil and spices and then grill them until they’re browned and tender. Serve the apples with barbecued pork or as a dessert with a scoop of ice cream.

  • Easy
    Grilled Peach Cobbler

    This summertime dessert cooks up entirely on the barbecue. First grill the peaches, then bake the cobbler in a Dutch oven over bricks on the grill.

  • Easy
    Grilled Banana Splits

    Grilling bananas adds a whole new dimension of flavour to the fruit. Use them to make the ultimate banana split, along with our rich Peanut Butter Ganache.

    Grilled Pineapple with Bourbon Sauce

    Pineapple grills up beautifully on the barbeque. Cook up a few spears and serve them with ice cream and a sweet bourbon sauce for a summertime dessert.

Grilling Veggies

Grilling adds an added layer of flavour by bringing out the sweet and smoky flavours in vegetables, as well. Grilled vegetables will complement and elevate any barbecued meat, chicken or fish dish. Vegetables can cook right on the grill, in a grill wok, in a cast iron frying pan or in a foil packet.  

  • Easy

    Ratatouille is a French vegetable stew, typically made with tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers and herbs. With this version, we cook the vegetables on the barbecue.

  • Easy

    Savoury Grilled Vegetables

    Barbecuing is such a delicious way to prepare vegetables. Use a grill wok or topper so the veggies don’t fall through the grates of the grill.

  • Easy
    Dilled Vegetables in a Packet

    Cooking a medley of vegetables in a foil packet is the easiest way to create a healthy barbecued side dish.

    Parmesan Corn on the Cob

    Zucchini Halloumi Skewers
