Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Before grilling, rinse, trim, cut up, and precook vegetables as directed in "Preparations and Timings for Grilled Vegetables" (see below). To precook any one vegetable, in a saucepan bring a small amount of water to boiling; add desired vegetable and simmer, covered, for the time specified. Drain well.

Instructions Checklist
  • To grill, brush vegetables with olive oil, margarine, or butter before grilling to prevent sticking to grill rack. Cook vegetables on the grill rack directly over medium-hot coals until tender and slightly charred, turning occasionally. Use the following timings as a guide. (Actual timings will differ depending on thickness of vegetables, how hot the coals are, and how far the vegetables are form the coals.)
