Grilled vegetables

Grilled vegetable sauce for barbecue

Sauce for barbecue made from baked vegetables is also a wonderful and healthy side dish. Especially for children, who are so difficult to feed with vegetables. You can use any vegetables you like.

We will need:

  • Vegetable or olive oil – 2 tbsp. l.
  • Any greens – 1 bunch
  • Salt, pepper to taste

How to do:

  1. Fry vegetables on grates or on skewers until they are burnt; eggplants and peppers can be placed directly on the coals.

  3. Now that the vegetables have been peeled, you can chop them to the consistency you want and add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Mix everything well and the baked sauce is ready!

Garlic can also be baked directly with the whole head. And the sauce itself, if desired, can be pureed with a blender, but pieces are tastier and can be used as dipping sauce. Try adding balsamic vinegar instead of lemon.

Dip pita bread into it, use it as a sauce for French fries or eat it as a separate dish. You can also make a spicy sauce for kebabs. Just bake a hot pepper pod along with bell peppers.
