Onion wedges or rings

Using a solid barbecue plate stir fry for 4-5 minutes or until golden and softened.
Slice tomatoes in half and place face down on the barbecue plate. Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until heated through. Turn over and sprinkle with pepper or fresh herbs. Remove from heat, serve immediately.
Other vegetables e.g. fresh asparagus, snow peas, green beans, yams and scallopini, can be cooked on the barbecue.
