Yummy in My Tummy: Grilled Summer Veggies

One of my favorite parts of summer is all the fresh produce available from my garden.  I honestly think that foods taste better if you grow them yourself.  I have discovered that one of my favorite ways to use up the veggies is to throw them on the grill.  This is a quick and healthy side dish for any meal!

Start off with your favorite veggies.  I use cherry tomatoes, zucchini and eggplant in my version.

Dice up the veggies into large chunks.  I leave the cherry tomatoes whole!

Give your veggies a health dose of the good stuff...olive oil and seasonings.  You can use any type of seasoning blend that you have available.  I tend to try a different blend each time I make this recipe. 

I put my veggies on a grill pan over medium to high heat for about 10 minutes.  Be sure to keep an eye on these bad boys because they char very easily.  Flip your veggies half way through!

YUM!  I served mine with barbecued chicken from the grill.  Be aware!  These are addictive!



  1. YUM! I have grilling peppers and Zuccs with some mushrooms added in and all tossed with some Italian dressing. Great minds.....;-)

  2. Looks great. I have that same grillng basket and it works great. I sense a theme with these Yummy in my Tummy posts. (I think this calls for a weekly feature.) :)
