BBQ Time! Grilled veggies and skewers - step by step video

One of our favorite spots in the Bay Area is Lake Lagunitas, near Fairfax, CA. What a treat to go on a weekday and have the park almost to ourselves!
We made skewers, a classic provoleta (with a spin), grilled vegetables and even dessert. Dive in!

There's almost no recipe for today, but as a quick check list we are including all the ingredients we used in our Barbecue day.


We used chicken, steak, red and green peppers, onions and mushrooms.

Grilled Vegetables:

We used zucchinis, portobellos and corn. Straight on the grill.

Caramelized Cherry Tomatoes:

We placed cherry tomatoes on foil, added garlic and olive oil.


Provoleta is a classic treat you'll find at all argentinean parrillas (BBQ!). Typically we use provolone cheese, but today we used a delicious greek cheese - halloumi cheese- that doesn't melt. We added oregano, red pepper flakes and olive oil. If you don't have a small cast iron skillet, you can just use foil.

Egg filled Peppers:

We used red and green peppers, cut them in half to form a basket and place an egg in the middle. Finish with oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and straight to the grill.

BBQ Figs:

We cut figs in half, place them on foil and cover them with honey.

We grilled all together and came out ready at the same time. Good times!


  1. Que ricooo :-P Justo hoy comí brochettes!!

    Muy buena idea, nuca se me había ocurrido preparar el postre en la parrilla!!

    Esos higos... son higos o brevas? (nunca supe bien cuál es cuál) Mi novio tiene una higuera y siempre cosecha... pero tienen la piel más oscura y arrugada.

    Otra cosa, en la página de maizena ( hay varias recetas "para celíacos"... no sé qué tal porque yo en la cocina ..........mmmmmmm..... pero me acordé de Julia cuando lo ví.

  2. hmmm sabés que no sé la diferencia. Los compramos como "figs"!
    Me voy a fijar las recetas de maizena, gracias!!

  3. genias, muy buena la receta, vamos a hacerla por el dique....acá en tandil con mi señora.

    una sugerencia es posible los videos en inglés y español, ya que son dos, digo porque algunas cosas se me re escapan.

    sigan para adelante!!
