Grilling vegetables is like giving them a chance to live a second time. This is a good choice for vegetables that may already be a bit soft (I do not mean rotten when I say soft, just not crispy). Sprinkle with butter, salt, pepper, or your favorite seasoning, then bake in a 400o F oven until it has been caramelized. Once roasted, vegetables are perfect for salads, omelets, sandwiches, rice bowls, pizza, pasta, burritos, tacos, and more. Instead, you can grill them on a saucepan with some meat, such as smoked, grilled sausage and vegetables, and then make a meal on the saucepan.

2. Pasta

Eggs and vegetables are the best food. It is usually best to shred the vegetables in the refrigerator, add a few eggs to the frying pan, and then make the vegetable platter. However, you can also grill vegetables into eggs. They include such vegetables as those on the ratatouille pancakes. Grill them into small ‘egg cups.’ Fold them into omelets or even place them into breakfast egg tortillas.

4. Stir-Fry

So do not waste any vegetables. You can easily turn it from being a waste by roasting, frying, or making pasta, omelets, as well as scrambles.
