Grilling Your Way to Five a Day

If you are the proud owner of an Aemyrie wood-fired oven then you will likely know that this style of cooking is all too often associated with meat and little else. Meat naturally takes to roasting, smoking, and grilling wonderfully, but many forget that vegetables do too. With many of us looking to move towards a healthier lifestyle, a good first step to make is often something as little as increasing our fruit and vegetable intake – after all, we’re all familiar with the idea of “five a day” but just how often do we actually hit that goal? Well, if you have been struggling then fear no more – grilling can easily help you to achieve this target, providing you follow the right recipes.


Honey-Glazed Sweet Potato and Chicken Kebabs

Perfect for those with a bit of a sweet tooth – or perhaps a craving for something spiced – these kebabs are packed with protein and feature two of your five a day in the form of sweet potato and onion. For a milder flavour, simply alter the spice mix and reduce or remove the chilli powder.

Balsamic Soy Roasted Garlic Mushrooms

Mushrooms may not actually be a vegetable, but do still count as one of your five a day! For a quick and tasty side dish packed with nutrients, all you need to do is toss some whole mushrooms in a mixture of garlic, soy sauce, and vinegar before grilling – no slicing required!

Roasted Carrots and Beets with Thyme

Want to add a splash of colour to your life along with that veg? For a beautiful side dish that is bursting with goodness, why not try this roasted recipe for a different take on beetroot which is anything but boring.

Turmeric Roast Vegetable Soup

If you really want to pack a punch and get all your five a day out of the way at once, then nothing beats a veggie-loaded soup! Featuring a whole array of flavourful roasted vegetables, herbs, and spices, this thick soup will help keep you fuller for longer too!
