Summer is slowly creeping up on us, and what better way to celebrate it than with these BBQ potatoes and vegetable medley! We are checking out The Little Potato Company's Terrific Trio as I continue my brand ambassadorship!
Our Canadian temperatures have still been a bit crazy. I know on the west coast they have been having warm weather, while us here in Ontario are still dealing with cooler temperatures. I mean, it isn't horrible, but they are confusing. Have to leave the house in the morning with a heavier jacket but by the afternoon a spring jacket will do. That aside, we thought it was high time to break out the BBQ! And what better way to start the season off than with steaks and these BBQ potatoes and vegetable medley!
The Little Potato Company is all about showing off their amazing Creamer potatoes and this time around we went for something, quick, simple, and sparse on ingredients. I wanted to highlight the Terrific Trio here, and by keeping my ingredients to a minimum I was able to achieve that. Do I consider this recipe a 5-ingredient or less creation? I think so! To me, every house should have salt, pepper, oil, and garlic as staples so those are not included in my 5 ingredients 🙂 But if you want to add more veggies, go for it! I actually threw on some grilled mushrooms since I was not joining in the steak dinner.
What is better than seeing some pics of dinner in action?!
Time and time again I have stated how nutritious and delicious these potatoes are. My sister mentioned the other day that her friend finally got around to picking up a bag of Creamer potatoes after hearing me talk about them forever. Her exact words were: "they were actually creamy." Yes! Taste is so important, and there is just something about these little guys. And with this recipe I kept everything vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free, so any guest should be able to have a bite! Of course, while I did prep the meal, I left the BBQing to my husband. Well, now that I think about it, as soon as his steak was done he vanished... But don't worry, he would NEVER pass up on potatoes!
BBQ Potatoes and Vegetable Medley
A quick and simple BBQ meal that can easily be adjusted (ie. more veggies!)
- 1.5 lbs Creamer potatoes (I used The Little Potato Company's Terrific Trio)
- 2 large zucchini, sliced ½-inch thick
- 2 sweet bell peppers, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- Poke your potatoes with a knife and place into microwave for 7 minutes.
- Combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and toss until evenly combined. Season with salt and pepper generously.
- Heat BBQ to a high heat (450F) and place veggies on a grill pan. Cook, covered, stirring every so often until veggies are tender-crisp (or softened to your liking,) about 20 minutes.
- You can halve your potatoes to save on cook time!

While these BBQ potatoes and vegetable medley were grilled, this recipe would easily transfer to the oven. I did microwave my potatoes first to soften them, but if you used The Little Potato Company's microwave ready packages, you wouldn't need to complete the hassle of poking all the potatoes so they don't blow up in the microwave 🙂 I just really like the colors in the Terrific Trio and think they made a show-stopping side dish for summer!

I'd like to sign up for The Cookie Writer School of Photography, please. 😉 I keep scrolling back up. Gorgeous lighting! The potatoes and veggies look great but my mind is too blown by the pictures to think about them. 😀
Oh, Erin, how I never thought I would hear that request, lol. It has taken so long to get my photography "right" and even then I am my worst critic. But thank you so much!

"To me, every house should have salt, pepper, oil, and garlic as staples so those are not included in my 5 ingredients."
Amen, lady. We use salt, pepper, oil and garlic as the base of basically ANYTHING that's savory in our house. And these BBQ potatoes and veggies? GIMME. I'm a sucker for any vegetables done on the grill, so I know I'm gonna love these. Saving the recipe for later because we're totally gonna make these during the warm summer months!
I am SHOCKED when people do not have the basics! People don't need a full pantry, but even a bit of each spice is never a bad thing (you can buy little bits at a bulk store so you are not wasting your money.) Thanks so much, Erin!

Wow these look amazing, my mouth is watering thinking about it, grilled veg is my all time favourite , very excited
Hey there! Just wondering what the best option is (add more time/boil a bit beforehand?) as I don’t have a microwave. Thanks!
Boiling or steaming works great!
