Most Delectable Grilled Vegetables

July 06, 2024

I love roasting vegetables but once July rolls around, it’s just too hot to turn on the oven. That’s when I move to the outdoors to prepare the most delectable grilled vegetables on the BBQ.

With the abundance of fresh veggies available, the options are plentiful but in my opinion, the best grilled vegetables are a mix of zucchini, summer squash, red onion, bell peppers, and baby Bella mushrooms.

You get a mouth watering mix of textures and flavors when grilling vegetables on the BBQ; the slightly charred, caramelized mushrooms are meaty, the squash is soft, and the peppers and onions are sweet with a little crunch.

To give my grilled vegetables maximum flavor, I cut everything to a similar size to ensure even cooking. Then I season them with avocado oil, salt and pepper, and a splash of white balsamic vinegar.

Grilled vegetables are a delicious, easy side dish for summertime BBQ’s but also make for savory veggie tacos, or can be served over mixed greens or a whole grain like quinoa for a hearty salad.

Tip: Once I season the veggies, I place a cast iron grill pan on the grill grates and transfer my seasoned veggies. Grill temp is 350-400 degrees. Grilling time is about 12 minutes.

Serving Suggestions.

You can eat these veggies right off the grill and they taste incredible or transfer to a serving plate.

Grilled veggies are an easy side dish for any protein such as fish, beef or chicken.

I made delicious veggie tacos with them, which my family gobbled up and also served them over mixed greens for a hearty salad for lunch the next day.
