How To Grill Vegetables: The New Bible for Barbecuing Vegetables Over Live Fire

Workman. May 2021. 336p. ISBN 9781523509843. pap. $25.95. COOKING
Raichlen has written a number of cookbooks on grilling (Project Fire; Project Smoke). His latest resource is about properly grilling vegetables. Raichlen mentions from the start that this isn’t necessarily a vegetarian cookbook; there are some vegetarian recipes, such as Charred Winter Squash Tzatziki, but other recipes incorporate bacon and the like. That shouldn’t deter all kinds of cooks, though. In addition to recipes, readers will find the general information they need to successfully grill any kind of food. The introduction outlines nine steps to grilling vegetables like a pro; there’s also an in-depth guide to tools and other resources for help along the way. Raichlen’s writing is conversational in this cookbook, as it is in his others. He often suggests variations or substitutions and offers encouragement to both new and experienced grillers. The book helpfully concludes with an alphabetical list of vegetables and the basic tenets of grilling them.
VERDICT Home cooks looking for new ways to add flavor and fun to vegetables will be drawn to this collection; it will be especially beneficial to anyone who’s new to grilling and not sure where to start.
