Grilled Vegetables

Crosshatched grill marks give food that professional-chef look.

So, how can you grill summer’s organic vegetables to perfection?

  1. Make sure your grill grate is clean. Pretreat it with a nonstick cooking spray. (Don’t spray a hot grill.)
  2. Purchase the right tools, including long-handled tongs and a grilling spatula. Tools should also be pretreated with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. While large chunks of bell pepper and sweet potato can be placed directly on the grill, smaller veggie cuts may require a grill basket so they don’t fall through the grate.
