Grilling Instructions: The trick with vegetables is getting them to cook through at the same time – not always an easy task since we frequently like to eat a variety of different veggies together but their grilling times vary widely. Following these guidelines should help. After a time or two you’ll be able to judge how to apply them to your particular grill and preferred degree of doneness.

Make sure you marinade the veggies or brush them first with oil to prevent sticking. You may thread them on skewers, use a grilling basket or place them directly on the grill. Cook them ove medium heat in a closed grill and turn once, halfway through the cooking time.
