Ditch your boring veggies for these Grilled Tandoori Vegetables that make a perfect meatless main course or side dish.
We make grilled veggies at least a few times a week during the summer and as much as I love them in olive oil and balsamic, sometimes I like to switch things up. A friend suggested trying some delicious tandoori spice seasoning and we fell in love with the results. The yogurt marinade adds tons of flavor to the veggies and lets the tandoori spices, garlic, and ginger really come through. It makes a perfect vegetarian entree with some grains or chickpeas or the serving can cut in half for a healthy side dish.

- 2 cups plain low fat yogurt
- 6 U cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp. ginger, minced
- 3 tbsp. tandoori spice (adjust as needed)
- 2 U small sweet potatoes
- 1 U red onion, chopped
- 2 U zucchini, cut into planks
- 1 U summer squash, cut into planks
- 1 U red pepper, chopped
- 2 cups cauliflower florets
- 2 U ears corn, halved
Mix together the yogurt, garlic, ginger, and tandoori spice. Taste and add extra tandoori spice if needed since they can differ greatly in strength.
Par cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave by piercing all over with a fork and microwaving for 5-7 minutes or until just tender.
Toss the vegetables with the yogurt marinade and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.
When ready to grill, remove veggies from the marinade letting excess drip off. Grill for about 10-12 minutes, flipping the veggies 1-2 times during cooking. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
