Surprising foods that taste better grilled
Meat is so good on the grill but veggies and fruits infuse unique smokey flavors too. If anything else, any meal cooked on the open fire grill is authentic cooking at its best. Plus, you can taste the magnificent difference from the char. However, what happens to your carefully picked ingredients when put on the grill? Well, fruits are much sweeter because it draws out the natural sugar(fructose) and veg flavors enhance when lightly charred. It is a wonderful reaction, only fire heat can do! Here, we outline meat-free ingredients that are pleasantly enhanced when they hit the grill.
Nothing beats biting into a piece of cold watermelon on a hot summer day, so grilling this refreshing fruit seems strange and even unthinkable. But in fact, slightly grilled watermelon perfectly pairs with feta cheese and balsamic vinegar. You are bound to find a fantastic salad dish with this combination.
Keeping tabs on your weight? Opt for grilled slices of this cruciferous veg – a healthier alternative to frying it. For best results, grill on low heat until it becomes tender. Then, after some good heat, you can get a good char out of it. Add some fresh herbs, a squeeze of lemon, and voilà – you may just have your next favorite side dish.

This creamy fruit is divine just as-is, and pairing it with various ingredients is always good. But grilling takes this freshly oiled butter pear to a whole new level. Charring avocado infuses a smoky flavor into every bite. Additionally, it will ripen it quicker – excellent if you have some unripe ones that you just can’t wait to eat.

Lettuce on the fire seems a bit too optimistic and unheard of, but we love adventure which is why we encourage you to try it.

For extra indulgence, drizzle on some blue cheese dressing.
