What a Vegetarian does with a BBQ. Part 3 of a continuing series. Baked Pears, Strawberries, Grapes!!

Winter Blanket

Still loving my BBQ, even in winter, almost even in the cold. I decided to play with fruit during my latest outing with the Weber Q.

If you haven’t see it already, take a look at Part 1 of this BBQ series to see Grilled Fennel with Lemon and Parmesan and Grilled Broccoli with Preserved Lemon and Part 2 of this BBQ Series to see Roasted Carrots with Pomegranate Molasses, Melty Cheese and Baked Bananas.

As the focus was on fruit, I also wanted to see what the BBQ was capable of, in terms of using it for not-so-traditional BBQ fare and cooking pots. So with a lot of trepidation, I also used a couple of my Italian terracotta posts for the first time in the BBQ, and they fared very very well indeed. I may get brave enough to eventually use the Indian terracotta cookware, but we will see… Harder to replace, these may wait a little longer before they make it onto that grill. :)

Roasted Rosemary Pears

This recipe has been on my mind for the past couple of weeks. You can see the full recipe here: Roasted Rosemary Pears

Pear Marinade

First, marinade your pears in a mix of rosemary, chilli and lemon juice.

Roasting Pears

Place in a dish, and …

… cover with sugar and butter. I use jaggery but use any sugar that you like. Cook until lovely and soft…

.. and serve. Delicious. Dice leftovers and include in salads.

Roasted Grapes

An easy and surprisingly delicious dish. I had never heard of roasted grapes until recently when an Italian friend was telling me how he made a salad with them. You can see the gorgeous recipe that I used here.

Drizzle grapes with olive oil, salt, black pepper, a little thyme. Mix so grapes are coated with the oil and flavourings.

Roasting Grapes

Place on the grill and roast until done.

Simple. Enjoy!

Baked Strawberries

A sweet dish to finish, an old old favourite, baked strawberries. Here is my recipe – I just adapted it for the BBQ. Baked Strawberries This time I cooked them with orange juice, black pepper, a tiny pinch salt, cardamom and a little rosemary.

I have to say they were amazing. I cooked them in this terracotta dish placed on a roasting rack to lower the heat a little. Actually, I had the dish with the pears placed on top of this one while they cooked, so theoretically this one had a lid. You can experiment with and without a cover, and see what you like best. I don’t use one when I cook them in the oven.
