One of our favourite activities during the winter landscaping season in Calgary is preparing a delicious meal over a grill or custom fire pit and enjoying it with our friends and family. We’ll be sharing some recipes with you from time to time that are perfect for an evening by the fire in your outdoor retreat.

The first recipe is a grilled vegetable medley that’s delicious and healthy. This is a great dish to prepare with grilled steak or chicken. It will be even more special if the vegetables come from your own garden!

Fire Pit Veggies


2 medium Yukon gold potatoes cut into 3 mm slices

375 mL baby-cut carrots

250 mL green beans

30 mL butter or margarine, melted

2 mL salt

1 mL dried oregano leaves

1 mL garlic pepper

1 mL ground cumin

Cooking Method:

1. Heat your grill or hot coals for direct heat.

2. Spray a 24 x 8-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil with cooking spray.

3. Toss your ingredients together in a bowl and pour mixture onto aluminum foil.

4. Fold foil over vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.

5. Cover and grill packet 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 20 to 25 minutes, turning packet over after 10 minutes, until vegetables are tender.

After the cooking time, carefully remove the foil from the heat and open the foil cautiously. Then your vegetable medley will be ready to enjoy!
