Good vegetables for grilling are those that will hold their shape and can be cut large enough that they don’t fall through the grill. Here are some vegetables that work well on the grill and are especially delicious prepared this way:
- Crunchy: red bell pepper, broccoli, asparagus, carrots, corn, cauliflower
- Flavored Packaging: onion cloves or whole garlic cloves
- Tender: whole mushrooms, yellow squash, cherry or cherry tomatoes, sliced aubergine or zucchini
Grilled Marinated Vegetables
Start with an excellent vegetable marinade: No matter how you decide to serve your vegetables, you’ll want to start by marinating them! It doesn’t have to last long, even 20-30 minutes will infuse some flavor.
- Acid: Use lemon juice or wine vinegar instead of balsamic if you like.
- Herbs: Rosemary is especially delicious with grilled vegetable marinades. Other herbs that work well include oregano, thyme, marjoram, sage, and basil.
- Aromatic: Depending on what you’re serving it, add your favorites like garlic, minced green onion, and ginger. Season generously with kosher salt and black pepper.
how to roast vegetables
Grilling mixed vegetables is very simple. You can place slices or wedges directly on the grill, use skewers, or better yet, a grill basket.
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
- Cut vegetables large enough so they don’t slide off the racks.
- Prepare the vegetable marinade and add the vegetables for at least 20 minutes.
- Grill until tender, removing vegetables from grill to a plate as they cook.
Other options for grilling marinated vegetables
- skewers – Thread vegetables onto skewers if desired. If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them for at least 30 minutes (or even overnight) so they don’t burn.
- grill basket – Use a grill basket to cook vegetables quickly and easily. Add the quick cook vegetables towards the end.
- grid mat – I use a grill mat for just about everything, you still get the perfect grill marks and all the flavor, but it prevents sprouting and nothing falls out!
