Cooking vegetables on the grill imparts a delicious smokiness. And if the grill’s already on, why not put some vegetables on too? Here are cooking instructions for our favorite vegetables for grilling, but don’t limit yourself to these—grill whatever vegetables you have on hand. If you’re looking for a marinade for grilled vegetables, click on the “Seasonings” tab below for some great ideas.
Halve and scoop out the choke if it’s prickly. Brush with 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (or canola oil) and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground pepper—or with one of the flavoring combinations from the “Seasonings” tab.
Grilling Time on Medium-High
