Grilled Vegetables

In my part of the world, it’s BBQ season. My favorite side dish for the BBQ is glazed vegetables. It’s so easy to slice assorted peppers (red, yellow) red onions, zuchinni and summer squash into large bite size pieces. Add some cherry tomatoes, possibly chopped asparagus…….

Whisk together a glaze of 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp soy sauce, two cloves chopped fresh garlic, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar and chopped fresh parsley. Toss the vegetables in the glaze to lightly coat. Remember, too much oil can cause the BBQ to flame, so be careful.

If the pieces are large enough, they may go directly on the grill, but you can also cook on a skewer or use a BBQ grill pan. Cook until they are lightly grilled and tender, and serve hot. Add salt and pepper to taste.

(If you prefer you can switch out the balsamic vinegar for Worcestershire sauce – but it’s not vegan – so it’s good to keep that in mind for your guests!)
