Recipes Vegetables — 20 July 2012
Grilled Mixed Vegetable Bundles

By: Jodie Shield, RD

Who said vegetables are a pain?  It doesn’t get any easier than cooking them on the grill.  And I want to let you in on a secret: wrapping them in foil makes clean up a snap.  Here’s one of my go-to grilled veggie recipes.  I like to use corn, carrots and green beans – but potatoes, onions and peppers work well too.  Go ahead and season your grilled veggies with any fresh herbs and spices you have on hand.  I grow fresh basil and love to toss some in the bundle for an Italian flare. Enjoy!
