Variation Ideas

  • Oil – We used olive oil in this recipe. But you can use any type of cooking oil that you prefer in this recipe. Avocado oil or vegetable oil would work great. Melted butter is also a good option.
  • Seasoning – We used a simple seasoning in this recipe, but you can fresh herbs or an Italian seasoning blend. We recommend using what you have. We have also added fresh herbs such as rosemary and fresh thyme.
  • Marinades – Marinade the vegetable in a oil based marinade for added flavor. You can marinade the vegetables overnight or at least 20 minutes before grilling.
  • Cheese – When the vegetables are done grilling, open the foil packets and sprinkle with cheese. I love to use parmesan cheese for added flavor.
  • Garlic – We used minced garlic in this recipe, but you can use fresh garlic or garlic powder.
  • Potatoes – You can grill potatoes, but they take longer than other vegetables. We recommend putting them in a separate packet, and put them on the grill first before everything else.

How to Grill Vegetables in Foil

  • Step 1 – Cut a Piece of Foil – Lay out a large piece of aluminum foil. We do several pieces depending on how much vegetables we need to grill.
  • Step 2 – Prepare Vegetables – Cut all the vegetables and mix them together in a large bowl. I like combining all the vegetables in a bowl so it is easy to combine with the seasoning.

  • Step 3 – Toss with Oil – Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables. 
  • Step 4 – Add Seasoning – Then season the vegetables with the salt, pepper and minced garlic.  
  • Step 5 – Place Vegetables on Foil – Lay out the sheet of foil and divide vegetables on each piece of foil.

  • Step 6 – Wrap vegetables in foil pack – Fold up the sides of the foil and seal it together making a large foil packet.

  • Step 7 – Prepare Grill – Preheat the grill over medium high heat (approximately 400 degrees F). 
  • Step 8 – Cook Vegetables on Grill – Then place the foil sealed packet on the grill and cook for 5-8 minute (flipping the packet halfway through the cook time) until the vegetables are cooked through and tender.

  • Step 9 – Serve and Enjoy – Place foil packs on a sheet pan after removing from the grill. Be careful when unwrapping the foil packet as steam will release.  Then the vegetable are ready to serve and enjoy! 

Recipe Tips

  • Continue Cooking – Because the vegetables are cooked in the foil packs, it allows the vegetables to continue cooking while in the foil. I let the vegetables rest for a few minutes, then carefully open and then serve. This keeps them from getting to soggy.
  • Cut Vegetables – Wash and Cut vegetables in advance. This allows you to quickly fill the foil packets to easily put on the grill.
  • Marinade – You can use a dry seasoning or a marinade to cover the vegetables. You can even marinade your vegetables overnight for added flavor.
  • Foil – When grilling with foil packets, make sure to get the heavy duty foil. It holds up better on the grill.

How Long to Grill Vegetables in Foil

Depending on the type of vegetables and how large you cut them, it takes about 10 minutes to grill. If cutting the vegetables, make sure they are cut about the same size. This ensure that they cook about the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftover Grilled Vegetables

Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. This Grilled Vegetable Foil Pack would be the perfect meal to meal prep with. While you are grilling you chicken, make these vegetables for an side dish for lunch.
Grilled Veggies make the best side and adding to your lunch container makes it easy to heat up.

Can I Make Vegetables in the Oven?

Yes, enjoy these year round when you bake in the oven instead of the grill. They are still delicious and so easy. Bake in a 375 degree heated oven for 8-12 minutes.
There have been times when weather did not permit for grilling. I just popped the foil packets right in the oven and it was just as simple and so yummy.

How do you Keep Veggies from getting Soggy on the Grill

When preparing your grill, make sure that it is set to medium high heat. If your temperature is set to low, it makes the vegetables soft. Cooking on high heat allows the juices from the vegetables to caramelize. Combing the sweet flavors of the juices from the vegetables and the seasoning that the vegetables makes them tender and crispy.

    Would it be different if I just steamed it ?

  2. Carrie says:

    No it would be similar. We are basically steaming it in the foil pack.
