Step 2 – In a separate bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.
Step 3 – Pour over the vegetables and gently toss to coat the vegetables with the marinade. Make sure to season with salt and pepper.
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.
- 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.
