Grilling veggies

edited 10:46PM in EggHead Forum
Now that summertime vegetables are coming from my garden and also abundantly at the farmer's markets, I have been trying to perfect a grilling recipe for assorted fresh veggies. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have been presoaking in either ice water or marinades, grilling in a basket, ladling sauce/stirring....It's reaaaal close, but....still seems to be missing something ....I seem to recall Mollyshark posting something awhile back about ideas such as this.....

    My very first cook, a little over a year ago, was grilled vegetables and shrimp. I get the grill temp to about 450 while I wash and cut the veggies. A light coating of olive oil(too much and you can generate a nasty flashback) and a good sprinkle of dizzy pig(Tsunami spin or Swamp veniom depending on my mood) I use a veggie wok pan(kind of square with a bunch of holes in it)and give them a turn every five minutes or so. Depending on what you are grilling and how you like them, they take about 15 to 20 minutes. Hope this helps. Happy 4th

    I don't have a veggie wok, so I take another grate and position it in the opposite direction from the first grate, to form a grid. I baste eggplant, squash and zucchini with Italian salad dressing, and grill about 7-8 minutes per side. Comes out great!
