Grilled Vegetables

Now is the season to find yourself some squash and zucchini.
This recipe is so easy and simple.
I was pleasantly surprised how grilling these vegie's with olive oil and herb's brings out a sweetness in them.
They were good enough for my 6 year old to actually eat them and LIKE them!
Makes a great side dish.

Grilled Vegetables

2-3 medium-sized zucchini
2-3 medium-sized yellow squash

1 onion quartered

1-2 tablespoons olive oil, enough to coat
kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground pepper, to taste
Italian Seasoning


- Preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill to high heat.
- Slice the zucchini and yellow squash on a diagonal into slices roughly 1/4 inch thick. Cut onion in quarters.
- In a large bowl, toss the sliced zucchini, squash, and onoin with the olive oil, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
- Using a pair of tongs, place the coated vegetable slices on the hot grill pan. Cook until dark char marks appear. Flip the slices using the tongs and cook the other side until charred.
- Serve warm as a side dish or use cold in a vegetarian sandwich or wrap.
