How to Grill Veggies Perfectly Every Time

The grill is not just reserved for carnivores but also an excellent tool for cooking some tasty veggies! Grilling vegetables is a great way to add flavor and texture to them. When grilling veggies, there are a few things to remember to ensure that they turn out perfectly every time.

  1. First, it is important to preheat your grill before adding any food to it. This will help prevent your vegetables from sticking to the grill and ensure that they cook evenly.
  2. Next, make sure to oil your grill grates before adding the vegetables. This will help them not to stick and also add some flavor.
  3. Finally, do not overcrowd the grill. Cook the vegetables in batches if necessary to have enough space to cook evenly on all sides.

Vegetables never looked so tasty!

The best way to grill veggies is to use a two-zone fire. This means you'll have indirect heat coming from one side and direct heat on the other. Using this method, you can cook your veggies over low heat until they are crisp-tender without worrying about burning them.
