Easy Grilled Vegetables  – an easy, quick way grill all your beautiful veggies!


  • 12 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
  • 12 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • 12 bell peppers
  • 1 lb asparagus
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 yellow squash


  1. Ensure grill grates are clean; preheat grill to 450 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare your veggies and drizzle them in olive or avocado oil. Sprinkle them lightly with kosher salt and ground black pepper.
  3. Once grill is hot add your vegetables in a single layer (you might have to do more than one batch depending upon how much you are grilling) over direct heat.
  4. Close the grill and let cook about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Open the grill and flip your zucchini, bell peppers and yellow squash. Rotate your asparagus. Close grill and let cook another 1-2 minutes. Then open and flip your onions. Close the grill.
  6. After another 2-3 minutes open the grill and your zucchini, bell pepper, asparagus and yellow squash should be done (if they don’t look done enough just close the lid and let them cook a bit more). Otherwise, place them on a platter.  Let the onion cook another 1-2 minutes and then remove them from the grill as well.*
  7. Serve immediately.


  • Every grill is different and some can be much hotter than others.  Also, you might cut your veggie thicker than I did. Always use your eye when grilling and your best judgment – if your zucchini or asparagus are starting to look really charred, take them off. Or if you like a more crunchy grilled veggie – don’t cook as long. If you like a really well-cooked veggie – cook a minute or two longer.  That being said, veggies really don’t take too long to cook on the grill so stay close and watch them carefully.
