Grilled Vegetables Recipe

One way to add more healthy vegetables to your family's diet is by serving tasty grilled vegetables. Grilled vegetables can add many different colors to the dinner plate, and are a rustic treat.

Even if you don't have access to a grill, you can still prepare vegetables on an electric grill such as the Cuisinart Grill or a George Foreman grill, or you can roast veggies in the oven.

How to prepare grilled vegetables:

  1. Select a nice variety of fresh, ripe vegetables. I recommend any of the following: green peppers, yellow peppers, red peppers, onions, eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, or potatoes. Use your imagination, and don't be afraid to experiment.
  2. Cut peppers in half and remove seeds and stems; slice onions, eggplant, zucchini, squash, and tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices; and slice potatoes into approximately 1/4 inch slices.
  3. Brush all vegetables with olive oil
  4. Grill over hot coals, or roast in a preheated 400 degree oven until tender.
