Top 5 Easiest Vegetables to Cook Outside

Have you been enjoying the warm weather as much as we have? Nothing’s better than the summer time! The brilliant sun overhead, the cool pools at our feet, and the gentle breeze of another season ladled with fun times in the great outdoors and beautiful temperatures to go along. And with great weather comes the perfect opportunity to move cooking from indoors to out. Healthy Little Cooks has the perfect reason to do just that. Here is our list of the top 5 easiest vegetables to cook outside. So get the grill going…it’s time to get out and cook!


1. Portabella Mushrooms

Portabella mushrooms are hearty, like a meat, and packed with nutrition. Making the choice to cook this veggie outdoors is a good one as it only serves to enhance its naturally delicious taste!


2. Corn on the Cob

Summer wouldn’t be complete without partaking in this season’s timeless and classic dish: corn on the cob! Between the fun experience of eating it from the cob to the delectable taste, corn on the cob is a summer-food staple not to be missed out on. Try variations in cooking styles from in the husk to in foil to directly on the grate.


3. White Onions

Cooking these veggies outdoors will turn their taste from sharp and strong to soft and sweet. They go great with outdoor dishes like burgers as well as pairing well with other vegetables, especially those that are grilled!


4. Asparagus

Asparagus is one of those vegetables that is so easy (not to mention delicious) to cook on the grill. Be sure to appropriately season with salt and pepper for the perfect portion of this veggie!


5. Zucchini

Just like everything else on this list, zucchini is a vegetable that tastes great on its own, with some seasoning of course!
