Grilled veggies remind me so much of summer and BBQs at my parent’s house/the home I grew up in.

We always had grilled veggies at every barbecue and it is one of the only ways to get me to actually eat a vegetable at times (oops). I love the texture and flavor the grill gives them and how delicious they turn out.  Plus they are so easy to make and are always a great addition to any summer BBQ or get together. Of course the hot dogs, burgers and potato salad are key. But the grilled veggies are always a crowd favorite and it helps everyone it a little healthier!

What veggies we are grilling:

  • Bell peppers, cut into 1/2 inch thick strips
  • Sweet onion, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch rounds
  • Zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch thick strips
  • Sweet potatoes, cut into fry form
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper and any other spices you’d like
  • Grill basket if you’d like (I use this for smaller cut veggies)

How to grill vegetables on the grill in a few easy steps:

  1. Begin by soaking the sweet potatoes in fry form in bowl of cold water for 30 minutes
  2. Next strain then add each vegetable to their own bowl or one large bowl and drizzle olive oil on top and add spices and toss well
  3. You want to add more oil than you think and it burns off on grill and same with salt on watery veggies like zucchini so it soaks up the water/moisture
  4. Preheat grill to medium heat and add veggies to grill or onto grill basket and cook the onions, peppers and sweet potatoes for about 8-10 minutes then flip and cook for another 8-10 minutes
  5. For the zucchini cook 4-5 minutes then flip and cook for another 4-5 minutes so that get a little blackened and crisped
  6. Remove from grill and enjoy!

FAQs on grilling vegetables:

  1. What vegetables are good for grilling? Peppers, onions, corn, portobello mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, asparagus and cauliflower are some of our favorites!
  2. Do you have to marinate veggies before grilling? I just like to oil them and season well. I don’t go crazy with marinades with my veggies like I do with chicken or meats.
  3. Do you use a grill basket when you grill vegetables? It is up to you. I like to for when the veggies are cut into smaller pieces so they don’t fall through the grill.
