The Best Vegetables to Grill

Vegetables – Zucchini (or yellow squash), red onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, asparagus, and tomatoes are an ideal combination to grill! Other options include, (but aren’t limited to!), par-cooked chunks of potatoes, 1” rounds of fresh corn, eggplant, broccoli or cauliflower florets, or halved brussels sprouts.

Seasonings – Just a little olive oil, lemon juice, and some fresh garlic and parsley make a light marinade that brings out the best of the caramelized flavors of the veggies.
