Kale Soup …. the 3 part series

This was my first time making a “so called” instructional video. Many of the instructions were left out, not thought of at all, or put together as one … who knows?!?! Either way, the Kale Soup was delicious, and it will be made again. Here is a list of things I “threw” into the pot: white potatoes, butternut squash, vegetable broth, onions, split peas, white beans, black beans, and a lot of seasoning. Oh yeah, and some KALE.

My Secret Weapon is a FAN!

I use to follow the directions of others in term of grilling my pizza, but now, I keep the temperature around 450 degrees using indirect heat while cooking it for about 20 mins. This seems to work for me because I’m not in a hurry most of the time. The FAN is my secret weapon when the temperature either is lowering, or when I want to get the grill hot in a hurry. Nothing fancy, just a guy with his grill and a FAN.


PIZZA on the GRILL????

For the last six months, I have been cooking my pizzas on the grill. More specifically, the Big Green Egg. There is a certain excitement with cooking pizza on the grill, but when it ends up being part of your weekly routine, it becomes a challenge to make each pizza better than the next one. Most people who cook on their pizza on the Big Green Egg try to get the temperature around 650 degrees, which I did at first, but now, I think the best way to cook it is at 450 degrees for about 20 – 25 min. Of course, my ingredients change each time, but the overall preparation is done the same. So far, the 450 degree method turns out PERFECT!




…. well, not really, but the “stuff” inside wawp-1486057626241.jpgs cooked on the Big Green Egg. Of course, the RICE was cooked in a rice cooker, but everything else, was done on the grill.
First of all, I grew squash and zucchini last summer, froze it, thawed it out, boiled it, then cooked it on the grill. With this, onions, asparagus, mushrooms, and carrots were added while cooking on a vegetable pan on the grill. Once all of the vegetables were nice and GRILLED, I let them cool in the refrigerator until it was time to cook the sushi rice. (cooked in the morning and ate at night)
Once it was time to fix the sushi, I put all of the vegetables in a FOOD PROCESSOR along with KALE, SPINACH, and SWISS CHARD. It was then mixed together to get the “filling” for the sushi rice.  After all of that, everything was ROLLED together to make my SUSHI!



First of all, I do not work, or have any affiliation with the Big Green Egg company.  The post you will see in the blog are all videos done by me with the hope of finding other ideas about how and what to cook on my grill. If you have any questions, please contact me. Thanks for visiting the site.

Spaghetti Squash 

Split spaghetti squash in half with a “serious” knife … scoop out the seeds … poke fork holes on the back side of the squash … 20170106_141245.pngbrush with olive oil and seasoning … put it on the grill face down for about 20 min … turn it over, and place on the back side for 20 min or less … cook between 350 and 375 on indirect heat … it’s done when you can put a fork through it …. scoop all of the squash out … add it to a dish with pesto, cheese, and onions … cook another 15 min or so …. tasty!
