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!
