About Grilling Vegetables
Want to add more flavor to your vegetables? Grilled vegetables have more intense flavor without adding unhealthy ingredients. Grilling vegetables is healthy and easy. Just cut the vegetables into consistent sized pieces, about ¾ to 1 inch thick, so they can cook quickly and evenly. Soak in cold water about a half hour, pat dry, and brush lightly with oil.
Most vegetables cook better and are less likely to stick if marinated first or brushed lightly with cooking oil. For added flavor, sprinkle grilled vegetables with fresh herbs.
Adding a teaspoon of mayonnaise to your marinade helps the flavors cling to the vegetables.
Char the vegetable slices on both sides, then transfer to foil on the grill. Close the lid or add a top sheet of foil. This helps vegetables stay crisp and retain their flavor.
For smaller vegetables, use a grilling basket to keep them out of the fire.
