Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high (400-450°F). Combine squash, oil, garlic, salt, crushed red pepper, thyme and pepper in a large bowl; toss until the squash is fully coated.

  • Oil the grill grates by partially soaking a few paper towels in canola oil, holding with tongs and quickly wiping the grates. Place the squash on the oiled grates; grill, covered, until the squash is just tender and grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the grilled vegetables to a serving platter. Garnish with additional thyme leaves, if desired.
