Grilled Sesame Vegetable Recipe
Spice Rub
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp sugar (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp chipotle pepper

Zucchini, cleaned, cut in half and cut into horizontal slices (about6 slices per small/med. zucchini)
1 fennel, root and top removed and sliced into slabs
2 portobello mushrooms either sliced or whole
1 lg red pepper, halved lengthwise, seeded and cut into strips
1 Chinese eggplant, sliced into rounds or halves
Any additional vegetables you like

2-3 tbsp Sesame Oil

Once you have sliced the veggies into desired size for grilling, baste the veggies with sesame oil. Combine the spice rub and then sprinkle the vegetables evenly with the mixture. Make sure you season all of the vegetables- and if you have extra veggies, mix up more spices!
You can either put these veggies on skewers (soaked in water for at least 30 minutes) or place them straight on the grill. Turn when grill marks are clearly visible and serve heaped up on a big platter.
I made a huge feast for the 4th of July and this recipe was one of the most popular things I made. Deceptively simple but the sesame oil and spices combine with a smoky grill to make food that is absolutely yummy. Great for a summer grill party. Vegetarians and Omnivores alike will enjoy this dish!
