Nutritional content

Servings: 6 people

Prep time: 40 minutes


  • Veggies of your choice, chopped into large pieces

  • 85ml lemon juice

  • 135ml extra virgin olive oil + extra for the grill

  • 1/2 tsp white sugar

  • 4 cloves of garlic

  • Seasoning

  1. Prepare the marinade by putting the lemon juice, 85ml of oil, sugar, 1.5 cloves of garlic, seasoning and dried herbs into a bowl. Mix well, then set aside for 10 minutes.

  2. Lightly brush the BBQ grill with oil and preheat to a high temperature.

  3. While it’s heating up, put your chopped veggies in a large bowl with 50ml oil, seasoning and 2.5 cloves of garlic.

  4. Toss everything well, until your veg is covered in the oil mixture.

  5. Put your veg on the BBQ and cook, turning often, until it’s all tender and a little charred around the edges.

  6. When the veg is ready, put it in a clean bowl and drizzle with your dressing. Toss everything well, then serve with a sprinkle of fresh parsley.


To store: Once the veg is cool, put it in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge for up to 4 days.
