FOOD – Are you preparing your umpteenth barbecue of the year and are you running out of ideas? To help you vary your dishes, TikTok users will inspire you. On the social network, they cook foods that you don’t think of doing on the barbecue, as you can see in the video above. Among them, avocado, watermelon, asparagus or artichoke.
If the avocado is the perfect fruit to put in a salad or on toast, it can also accompany merguez and chipolatas when cooked on the barbecue.
To do this, cut an avocado in half and brush each half with olive oil and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper and grill everything for about 3 minutes on the barbecue. Once the avocado is well smoked, add tomatoes, feta cheese and olives in the centre, and you’re done!
Lovers of sweet and savory meals, opt for the grilled watermelon. Cut the watermelon into pieces, put them on the barbecue and salt them. Cook them for 5 minutes on each side. Add basil, feta and seasoning of your choice. All that’s left is to taste!
Smoked asparagus and artichokes
Among the vegetables you don’t think of grilling are asparagus and artichokes. To do this, brush your asparagus with olive oil, salt and spices of your choice. Put them in aluminum foil and then on the barbecue for about two minutes.
For the artichokes, take care to boil them so that they are more tender. Remove the flowers, in other words the “hairs” of the artichoke. Add olive oil, salt and pepper and grill for 3 minutes on each side. Enjoy your lunch!
