– Grilled Vegetable Platter – Parrillada de Verduras –
Ok, so everybody knows that eating vegetables are good for them, but so many people just don´t eat them. In Spain, like in most other Mediterranean countries, vegetables are a huge part of our diet. For example, in Spain when most people go to a restaurant, they will order a grilled vegetable platter to be placed in the middle of the table, for everyone to nibble on as an appetizer while they sip on red wine and chit-chat. This grilled vegetable platter is a great way of getting your daily veggies in, and since they are coocked ¨a la plancha¨ (on a hot surface with little or no oil), they are still super healthy, plus they keep all or their vitamins and have an incredible flavor. Watch our video below on how to easily make a grilled vegetable platter and start enjoying your veggies in a way, you will want to eat everyday. Salud!
