Step 2:


Grilled Vegetables Prep:
2 peppers; green, red or yellow or pablano peppers, washed

1 eggplant, washed, top stem cut off, sliced 1/2" thick, lengthwise strips

1 zucchini, washed, sliced 1/2" lengthwise strips

1 bunch asparagus, woody ends snapped off, washed

Dressing:

1 clove garlic, minced

3tablespoons parsley, chopped

1/4cup EVOO

1/2teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed

3tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt or more to taste

1/2 red chili pepper or more to taste

On a hot grill or BBQ scorch the skin of the peppers all around until blackened. Remove to slightly cool to the touch. Scrape off peel with your hands or a knife. Seed and cut into desired serving sizes. Meanwhile grill slices of remaining vegetables turning to cook.

*They have no extra oil so they will slightly dehydrate but, you will be adding the dressing later, so no worries.* When softened remove to a platter to cool to the touch. Cut into desired servings.

Dressing:

In a small heated skillet, toast the coriander seeds. Toss to evenly distribute heat. Remove to cool. Crush in a mortar & pestle or place in a baggy and smash with a meat pounder/hammer or bottom of an empty wine bottle.

Dressing: Whisk, oil, vinegar, salt, garlic, parsley, chili and coriander.

Pour over vegetables and toss to coat. This can be done the day before and refrigerated. Then brought to room temperature to serve.
