Ingredients

For this grilled veggies recipe, you’ll need:

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 zucchini, sliced into rounds
  • 1 eggplant, sliced into rounds
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, whole or halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Fresh lemon juice (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Instructions

1. Preheat the Grill

Start this grilled veggies recipe by preheating your grill to a medium-high heat. This ensures that the grill grates are hot enough to create those beautiful grill marks we all love and adds a nice smoky flavor.

2. Prepare the Vegetables

While the grill is heating up, wash and slice all you vegetables. Be sure to cut them into uniform sizes so they will cook evenly. If you cut them too thin, and they will burn so it may be thicker than if you were cooking on a stove.

3. Season Your Veggies!

Drizzle your veggies in olive oil, then add the rest of your seasonings. Toss them well in a bowl until they are evenly coated.

4. Grill the Vegetables

There are several ways to grill your veggies but we recommend skewers or a grill basket to prevent the smaller pieces from falling between the grates. Grill them for about 3-5 minutes per side untill they are tender and have nice grill marks.

5. Serve and Enjoy

Once your veggies are grilled to perfection, remove them from the grill and transfer them to your favorite serving platter. A squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a fresh parsley garnish will bring a burst of fresh flavor. This grilled veggies recipe pairs nicely with chicken or steak or alongside more plant based dishes.

Tips For Perfectly Grilled Veggies

  • Preheat your grill: A hot grill will help prevent your vegetables from sticking. (Hint: if your grill is taking longer than 10-15 minutes to reach 400, it may be time for some repairs.)
  • Uniform slices: Different sized cuts will cook at different times. Uniform pieces means even cooking. Don’t be afraid to err on the thick side!
  • Use a Grill Basket: Skewers aren’t for everyone and that’s okay! Veggies are often small enough to fall through the grates (RIP asperagus) but a grill basket will ensure that your vegetables make it to your plate.
  • Don’t Overcrowd: Giving your vegetables enough space on the grill will help cook them evenly and give them a proper char.
