Mediterranean Grilled Veggies + Giveaway

I have a confession. I really, really don’t like cooking during the summer. I’m perfectly happy grilling outside or throwing together a salad that requires no cooking. But cooking is tough. There are only a few months of my favorite season and I like to enjoy every minute of them. No cooking for me. Trips to the pool, hiking, spending time with the kids, long runs–that is summer! But these Mediterranean grilled veggies made me rethink not cooking during the summer.

Today’s recipe is simple and easy to make and there are a number of ways to prepare the veggies. Pick your favorite way and you’ve got a simple and easy side dish.

I took the liberty of using a shortcut in this recipe. We used Simply Organic Mediterranean  Herb Greek Yogurt Dip. It was perfect on top of the veggies. You can find Simply Organic at your local health food store. They are sold in packets. We have used ours in a number of different recipes:

Crockpot Ranch Chicken 

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Spicy Ranch BBQ Wings

Today, we’re giving away some Simply Organic seasoning packets for you to use at home for your favorite recipes. You can also download a coupon to save yourself money. These are a very inexpensive side dish during the summer if you use garden veggies or pair them with what vegetables are on sale. The greek yogurt packets often go on sale.

Yield: 3 cups

Serving Size: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 cups summer vegetables, cut into bite sized pieces--squash, zucchini, carrots, peppers
  • 1 packet Mediterranean seasoning (approximately 1/4 cup)
  • Olive oil for drizzling

Instructions

  1. In an baking dish or on a piece of aluminum foil, arrange the vegetables. Heat oven to 350 degrees or grill to medium heat. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the vegetables and sprinkle the packet of seasoning over the vegetables (you can use less than a packet of seasoning if desired).
  2. Fold the aluminum foil up and seal or cover the vegetables with tin foil if baking in a baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes until vegetables are tender. Remove from oven or fire and stir to combine seasoning before serving if needed.

Notes

We used Simply Organic Mediterranean Herb Greek Yogurt Dip. McCormick also sells a Mediterranean Herb Seasoned Salt. and a Perfect Pinch Mediterranean Herb Seasoning.
