Why stop at grilling baked potatoes? There are plenty of other vegetables that taste delicious grilled, including:
•Mushrooms
•Onions
•Peppers
•Eggplant
•Asparagus
•Zucchini
•Yellow Squash
•Carrots
•Corn

When you’re choosing which vegetables to grill, stay away from veggies that are high in water content, such as cucumber, celery, and lettuce.

Here are four different ways to grill vegetables:
•Use skewers to create tasty veggie kabobs. If you’re using wooden skewers, be sure to soak the skewers in water before filling them with vegetables and putting them on the grill.
•Use a grilling basket or vegetable basket so that your vegetables don’t fall through the grill.
•Use foil (but note that you’ll lose some of the flavor of the smoking that many people enjoy from the grill).
•Place large chunks or slices of vegetables directly on the grill.

Regardless of which grilling method you choose, you’ll want to marinade your vegetables before grilling. You can either brush them with oil and coat them with your favorite spices, or soak them in dressing for a few hours before grilling.

Grilling vegetable suggestions:
•Clean your vegetables thoroughly before marinating or grilling them.
•Cut the vegetables into same-size pieces for more uniform grilling.
•Keep an eye on your vegetables throughout the entire grilling process – vegetables are much more fragile and less forgiving than most meats that you might cook on the grill.
•Take your veggies off the grill before they become soft, because the vegetables will keep cooking even after they’re away from the heat.

When you’re picking which vegetables to grill, don’t forget to grill baked potatoes. They’re a hearty, nutritious addition to any barbeque!
