Making Grilled Summer Veggies Is EASY
This recipe is really, really easy. All that is involved in the prep work for this delicious side dish is slicing and cutting up the veggies. I even was able to use some homegrown veggies from our garden as part of this dish (yee haw!)
Once the veggies are sliced and chopped, put them into a large bowl. I used zucchini, yellow squash, red onion, green and red pepper, green beans (even a few yellow fillet beans from the garden), and baby carrots.
You can certainly add in additional veggies to make this dish “your own”. That’s the best way, right? You’ve got to like what you’re cooking!
Time To Season The Veggies
Season the veggies with olive oil, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Give them a good toss, to fully coat the veggies with the seasoning.
Use A BBQ Grill Safe Basket
After the veggies and seasonings are combined, put them into a BBQ-safe grill pan (we got one for about $8 at a home improvement warehouse). NOTE: If you don’t have access to a grill pan, use a cast iron skillet on your BBQ to cook these, but watch out… the skillet will get REALLY hot!).
The grill pan we used has a handle to carry it that detaches once you get it on the BBQ grill, then reattaches to lift pan off the grill once done. Pretty handy to use!
Cook the veggies on a medium-hot grill for about 15 minutes or so, stirring often. My husband was the “Grill-Meister and Stirrer-Extraordinaire” for this dish!
Some of the veggies will get a nice char on them or get slightly golden brown… that’s great! Just remember to stir them occasionally so they don’t burn! We love cooking veggies on our Weber grill, cause the smoky smell permeates the vegetables, and gives them such a wonderful flavor!
Serve The Grilled Summer Veggies
Once the veggies are done (fork-tender), we bring them inside and top them with grated Parmesan cheese, and serve them up, straight out of the grill pan! YUM!
Sure hope you will give this EASY recipe a try. These grilled summer veggies are a wonderful accompaniment to most meat dishes. I think you and your family will love them! You might also like to see how to grill corn on the cob on the BBQ! That’s another easy way to cook veggies!
