HONEY-BUTTER GRILLED VEG WITH ALEPPO PEPPER
Schmeared with sweet sticky honey-butter & finished with smokey spicy Aleppo pepper
Serves 4-6 sides
1 large zucchini, halved
1 large yellow squash, halved
1 medium sweet potato, poked with a few holes
1/4c butter, softened
1tsp Aleppo pepper
Microwave the sweet potato until cooked thru but still with a bite to it (this time with depend on your microwave, or you can bake it in the oven, I never had any patience for that!). Let cool, then cut in half. Cut a ½” deep crosshatch pattern into all the vegetables halves by cutting diagonally into it first one way and then the other.
Preheat a grill to medium-high. Whip together the honey and butter until completely incorporated. Lightly schmear some butter on the bottoms of the veggies, just so it won’t stick, then give a heavier schmear to the cut sides, reserving some for brushing on after cooking. Sprinkle with salt.
Place veg on the grill, uncut-side-down and cook 3-5min until nicely charred. Flip and cook the same on the other side. Plate and schmear with a little more butter, sprinkle with salt and sprinkle with a good amount of the Aleppo pepper. Serve immediately.
Don’t do it.
