How to Grill Vegetables

Next time you're doing the honors with a grilled entree, arrange vegetables on the grill at the same time. Read on for a recipe and a chart showing how to grill vegetables.

Take a look at our tips for creating Grilled Vegetables:

Try This Technique:

Grilled vegetables are a healthy addition to a meal.

Rinse, trim, and cut up vegetables. If advised (see below), precook vegetables: In a saucepan, bring a small amount of water to boiling. Add vegetables and simmer, covered, for time specified in chart. Drain well. Generously brush vegetables with olive oil, margarine, or butter before grilling to prevent them from sticking to the grill rack. Grill over medium or medium-hot coals.

To grill, place vegetables on a piece of heavy foil or on the grill rack directly over the preheated coals. If putting them directly on the grill rack, lay them perpendicular to the wires of the rack so they won't fall into the grill. Grill, uncovered, for time in chart or till tender, turning occasionally. Watch closely to prevent charring.
