Mixing the marinade together in a bowl

Step 2 – In a separate bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.

Tossing the fresh vegetables with the prepared marinade

Step 4 – Place the marinade vegetables in a grill basket. Place on the grill and toss every few minutes. Cook on the grill until the vegetables are tender and cooked to your preference. 

Recipe Tips:

  • Grilling Vegetables – If you do not have a grill basket, mat or cast iron skillet, cut the vegetables large enough to place directly on the grill grates. This will keep them falling through the grill grates and give them a nice char.
  • Preparing Vegetables – We recommend preparing vegetables so they are cut about the same size. This helps for them to cook evenly and about the same time.  

How to Serve Grilled Vegetables:

There are so many ways to serve these grilled vegetables. They are delicious served with this grilled chicken breasts recipe or with this grilled steak recipe.

You can even add the vegetables to this pasta salad. We have even served with Grilled burgers for a light and tasty side dish.
