Grilled Vegetables

My favorite way to eat vegetables is to grill them. I dice up my favorite ones, put them in a ziplock bag. I add the marinade, seal the bag and shake. Ideally, they marinate for at least an hour. With the grill on med/high we add them to our grill basket and cook until they are just softened and charred. When I make them I make extra so I can add them on top of salads, put them over pasta or rice, mix them into my scrambled eggs or I love to make a grilled veggie wrap with a whole wheat tortilla and grilled vegetables. (if you don't have a grill basket leave the vegetables in larger pieces and place directly on the grill)
