Summertime is the perfect time to bust out the grill, and cook dinner outdoors, quite often we stick to a few of our favorite recipes such as potatos, steak and grilled vegetables, when we just need a gentle reminder of all the other things we could be adding to the grill. This article on the "18 Things You Didn't Know You Could Grill," is sure to change the way you look at barbecuing forever.
I have to say I'am guilty when it comes to getting into a cooking rut, where on a weekly basis we cook the same things over and over again, rarely venturing into new territory. When I saw this list of different things to grill, it inspired me to try some new and exciting ideas. Some of the foods you'll find on the grilling list include; grilled caesar salad, I've seen this before and I definitely want to try it, quarter the romaine lettuce, brush with oil, add a bit of salt and pepper and grill for 2-3 minutes, then do your salad as you normally would, looks amazing; grilled tofu, you'll want to use extra firm, cut the block into serving sizes, and use a marinade of beer, minced ginger, barbecue sauce, minced garlic, and let sit for about 1.5 hours, and grill (the grill marks look especially great); grilled banana smores (the kids will love these), cut banana lengthwise not all the way through just enough to open up, add small marshmallows, and chocolate chips, wrap in foil and grill, yum! Such great recipes!
We are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy bananas whenever we want, they are always readily avaiable at most any supermarket any time of year. Bananas are an excellent source of vitamin B6 and contain moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fiber. Bananas are often thought to supply a lot of potassium content, but it is actually is low compared to some other common foods such as beans, milk, apricots, carrots and sweet potatoes.
Marshmallows have been around longer than you think. The use of the marshmallow plant to make sweets dates back to ancient Egypt, where the recipe called for extracting sap from the plant and mixing it with nuts and honey. Another pre modern recipe uses the pith of the marshmallow plant, instead of the sap. The stem was peeled back to reveal the soft and spongy pith, which was boiled in sugar syrup and dried to produce a soft, chewy confection. The marshmallow plant's sap was also used by gladiators in ancient Rome. The sap was rubbed on the body in preparation for the fight. Today marshmallow is most popular when it is used as a topping for yummy desserts, and when it is toasted over a fire and eaten on its own, or in between two graham crackers with a piece of chocolate.
