Looking for a convenient, delicious way to work more vegetables into your diet? Look no further! You have arrived! These “Smoked Garlic Parmesan Vegetables” will knock your socks off! Even my picky kids (who aren’t too crazy about veggies) devoured these right up!
When you combine the freshness from the veggies with the smoky flavor from grill – you’ll have the neighbors all stopping by and peaking over your fence wondering what smells so good! These are the prefect side dish with any meal and so easy to prepare in larger quantities (big families, parties/get-togethers, work parties, etc).
Hope you’re hungry! Let’s get it started!
Let me first start off by introducing you to the newest member of my family! 🙂 This is the all-new
Unlike your traditional propane grills, this smoker heats up by feeding wood pellets into a fire and then cooking your food over the smoke. The result is perfect, wood-smoked flavor every time. We’ve done chicken, beef, pork, and vegetables on it – all of them have turned out phenomenally (you can even cook more “untraditional” grill items such as pizza and cookies!)
The secret lies in the “low and slow” cooking style. When cooking on a traditional propane grill, you typically cook your food about 5-10 minutes on each side. With the Woodwind Pellet Smoker I typically turn my thermostat to about 250 and then smoke food for over an hour. In fact – larger food like ribs and brisket smoke for 8+ hours! This makes them incredibly tender and ridiculously flavorful!
My favorite part is that the temperature is controlled and monitored digitally. Seriously – you turn it on, set the desired temp, put your food on, and then walk away. It doesn’t only make your food more flavorful, but easier to prepare also!
And now on to our recipe! Trust me – these Smoked Garlic Parmesan Veggies will soon be on your top 10 favorite list! Just push play on the following video to see it all in action; get the recipe including ingredients list and instructions down below!
