Baby Vegetable Parcels With Herbed Butter

“This is so great with mixed baby vegetables fresh from the garden. Almost any baby vegetables will do.”

  • baby carrots
  • yellow or fancy baby zucchini
  • green beans
  • onion, sliced thin
  • butter
  • zest of one lemon
  • fresh basil, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  1. Trim the vegetables leaving the whole or in large pieces.
  2. Place vegetables in buttered baking foil, season with salt and pepper. (You can do individual packages if you want).
  3. Mix butter with lemon zest in a small bowl. Add chopped basil (or any other herbs you like). Place a generous amount on top of vegetables.
  4. Fold over the foil and seal. Cook on BBQ for about 30 minutes until vegetables are tender.

Flower butter: instead of herbs you can season the butter with chopped baby nasturtium leaves (they have a slight onion/peppery taste). When done, top each serving with a baby nasturtium flower.

Yield: 4 servings
