Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high (400-450°F).

  • Combine parsley, mint, lemon juice, garlic, crushed red pepper, 6 tablespoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

  • Brush bell peppers, zucchini, squash, onion, eggplant and asparagus with the remaining 1/4 cup oil; sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Place the peppers, zucchini, squash, onion and eggplant on the oiled rack; grill, covered, until the vegetables are tender but still hold their shape, 3 to 5 minutes per side, adding the asparagus halfway through. Grill the asparagus until tender and grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Transfer the grilled vegetables to a serving platter. Serve with the parsley-mint sauce.


To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
