It’s summer, which means it’s officially grilling season! Susie Middleton joins us on this episode of The Fine Cooking Podcast to give us the low-down on grilling every vegetable under the sun. We’re talking stir-fries, vegetarian main dishes, and how to grill those smaller vegetables!

What We’re Cooking Now: Cherries

Chris loves to put fresh cherries in scones or make the Triple Cherry Galette from Abigail Johnson Dodge’s The Everyday Baker, and to roast cherries.

Kathy loves to use fresh cherries in drinks:

Cherry Margarita

Cherry Bounce

Sarah’s favorite cherries are tart cherries. She loves to use them in a simple hand pie or to put them in a clafoutis; this recipe can use either sour or sweet cherries.

Interview with Susie Middleton

Susie Middleton is the special projects editor for Vineyard Gazette Newspaper and Martha’s Vineyard Magazine.

Her books are:

Simple Green Suppers

Fast, Fresh & Green

The Fresh & Green Table

and Fresh From the Farm

Her article in the current issue of Fine Cooking is on grilling vegetables.

We talk a lot about cooking small vegetables, or stir-frying on the grill, for which a grill basket is essential.

To put vegetables at the center of the plate, Susie looks to pantry staples like beans, artisan breads, and pasta or noodles to build a meal around. Her results, like this Zucchini Bruschetta or Grilled Shiitakes with Somen and Asian Greens are satisfying main dishes where even carnivores don’t miss the meat.

Listener Q&A
