Grilled Veggies

Summer is upon us, and I love nothing more in life than a good barbecue.  Most people are fans of grilled meat, but I am a diehard grilled veggie fan.  When grilled, the flavour in peppers, mushrooms, and zucchini just seems to pop, transforming a humble vegetable chunk into a mouth-watering treat.

Below is one of my favourite mixes of veggies, but you can throw in just about any vegetable you are craving.  Eggplant is an especially tasty addition.  For the perfect summer meal (one that avoids the stove), simply grill a protein along with the veggies and serve with fresh baguette!

Grilled Veggies

(4 servings)



1 red pepper, cut into 12 chunks

1 orange pepper, cut into 12 chunks

1 zucchini, cut into thick slices

12 mushrooms, halved

Large handful of cherry tomatoes

1 bunch of asparagus, cut into 2 inch segments on the diagonal

1 purple onion,  cut into 8 chunks

Olive oil

Salt and Pepper

Crushed thyme, preferably fresh


Mix the veggies in a large bowl.  Toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper, and thyme.  Place in a barbecue tray, and grill over medium-high heat until lightly charred, about 12-15 minutes.  Delicious served warm!
