Grilled Stacked Veggies

Yum
Low carb grilled veggies

Maybe you have a meatless meal in your menu once a week or maybe you don’t eat meat at all. Either way, these low carb grilled veggies tingle your taste buds.

These grilled stacked veggies are so easy to make you’ll for sure want to add this one to your quick easy meatless meals.

Here is what you’ll need for the best-grilled vegetables:

2 medium-sized eggplants
6 portabella mushrooms
1 package of fresh mozzarella cheese
1 or 2 fresh tomatoes
6 leafs of fresh basil
1 jar roasted red peppers
Italian seasoning

First thing was to wash the mushroom and dry them with a paper towel. Then slice the eggplant into ¼ inch or ½ inch slices.

Now brush both sides of the mushrooms and eggplant with some light olive oil. Oh, I forgot, while you’re doing that go ahead and fire up your grill.

With the grill on the medium setting grill the mushrooms and eggplant until the eggplants are light brown, just like in this picture.

Now it’s time to slice your tomatoes and cheese, but before you do those preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Start building your veggie stacks with a portabella mushroom first, and then a slice of eggplant, now the roasted red peppers, another eggplant, and then a slice of tomato.
Place these on a cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes.

Take them out of the oven and add a couple of basil leafs and top off with the mozzarella cheese, sprinkle some Italian seasoning on top. Place this back in the oven until the cheese begins to melt.

These tasty grilled veggie stacks can be a meal all in itself or served as a nice side dish. I made a sandwich out of mine on a fresh ciabatta roll.

This healthy meatless meal is low carb and low in calories. One stack of these beauties is about 12 carbs.

I can’t take the credit for this, as Fran grilled the mushrooms and eggplant. And, Jamie prepared and baked the stacks. All I did was take the pictures and enjoyed the food.

As always Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

  12. What do you do if you don't like eggplant or tomatoes? Do you have any suggestions for substitutions? My husband does not like tomatoes and he will not eat eggplant either. :(
