I have a George Foreman grill, I love it and use it a
lot. We do eat meat, but this is a vegetarian list, so I'll
just mention what I do with the grill that's vegetarian:
Grilled veggies - marinate sliced veggies for about 10
minutes in your choice of marinade. I generally use either
an olive oil (sorry-just a little bit!) and balsamic vinegar
mix, or a tamari-sherry mix with chopped fresh gingerroot.
Barbecue sauce could be another choice. The balsamic
vinegar marinade is my favorite.
Grill the veggies about 4 minutes.
I've grilled the following (all are excellent): onions,
mushrooms, Portabello mushrooms, zucchini, yellow summer
squash, green peppers, broccoli, eggplant, thick slices of
tomato. I will try asparagus when I have some, there's no
reason why cauliflower florets couldn't be used also.
I have not tried this but I believe thick precooked (boiled)
slices of sweet potato or regular potato would be good too.
The veggies are really excellent this way: I grill a
whole plateful of various veggies for my dinner sometimes!
I also grill tempeh - marinate for about ten minutes, as
above. Excellent way to cook tempeh.
I tried pressed, very-firm tofu but it wasn't good at all
in the grill. Not a success.
Grilled cheese sandwiches are wonderful in the grill:
just bread, the cheese (which I suppose could be fatfree
cheese, I actually use 75% reduced fat cheddar), thick slice
of tomato: no butter or oil is necessary. This takes about
3-4 minutes - you can see when the cheese is all melted.
I hope you enjoy your grill as much as we do ours!
