To make this particular batch, we cut up a selection of veggies including bell peppers, onions, zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms. Any combination of veggies you like will do! In a large bowl, we toss the cut veggies with some grapeseed oil, crushed garlic, salt, and pepper. For this batch, my husband tossed in some sunflower seeds as well - yummy!
We use this grilling basket on the BBQ to grill the veggies. My husband usually takes care of the grilling, so I got these details from him. He starts with them on a hot flame, stirring to sear the edges. After the veggies sear, he turns the flame down so the temperature comes down to ~400 degrees F. He adds a layer of tin foil under the grilling basket to catch the juices and achieve a steaming effect by cooking them with the grill closed until they are done (for this batch it was another 30 - 40 minutes, but would depend on the grill and the size of the batch, of course).
When taking these to a pot luck, we grill the veggies ahead of time, then keep them warm by making a foil packet big enough to contain all the veggies after they're cooked. We put the foil packet full of veggies inside a small baking sheet. When we arrive at the party, we can reheat the veggies if necessary, open the packet, and add a serving spoon. Super easy, soooo yummy, and wonderfully healthy!
