I’m sad to see the end of summer arrive, but one good thing about it is the sheer garden bounty, plus the cooler evenings that make grilling out more pleasant. Our garden has been absolutely overflowing this year and I’ve been scrambling for new recipes and ways to prepare all of the yummy veggies.
Moore’s Marinades and Sauces offers plenty of BBQ options, but their Zesty Garden Herb Marinade really called out to me. It sounded like the perfect solution to add some flavorful zing to just about any grilled or baked vegetable.
My instincts were correct. I’ve tried this on slow-roasted potatoes and carrots as well as brushed onto chunky veggie kabobs seared on the grill and both were delicious. The mixture of apple cider vinegar, basil, rosemary, parsley, thyme, garlic and black pepper created a delightful scent and a garden-fresh taste with a little pizazz. We’re planning to try it next by marinating some chicken breasts, which I think will leave them mouth-wateringly succulent.
Moore’s Marinades were born in the South and are made in America. The Herb Marinade is Gluten Free and Kosher, with only about 20 calories per serving. It takes about ½ cup per pound of meat or veggies to create a robust flavor and it would also work well on pork or seafood, or simply use it as a dressing! If you wanted to get really decadent, you could dip fresh baked, crusty bread right into a little dish of this.
I have received samples to facilitate my review, but all opinions are my own.
