Grilled Vegetable Basket

In case you missed this when I shared it over at Tales of a Ranting it is for you!

We eat a tonne of vegetables at our house.  We are incredibly fortunate to live in a region that produces a lovely variety of vegetables for us, and we are able to purchase all a nice variety of vegetables at our local supermarkets - it seems we always have great selection to choose from!

One of our most favourite things to do, especially in the summer - though we do use our BBQ year-round, is grill vegetables.  We have a grilling basket for our BBQ that I think is the absolute best thing we've ever purchased for our BBQ.  We've bought these grilling baskets for people as gifts, we just LOVE ours that much!

Every time we do a Grilled Vegetable Basket, our "recipe" changes.  In fact, there is no real recipe, just "guidelines".  Or, more like, "What vegetables do we have on hand to chop and grill?".  Here is an example of one of our recent grilled vegetable baskets:

Cut up your vegetables into nice chunky pieces.  Here I used:

Red Pepper
Snap Peas
Orange Pepper
Gren Pepper
Yellow Pepper

Place your vegetable in a bowl, pour olive oil on top (just enough to coat, no need to overdo it), and sprinkle Montreal Steak Spice (as much or as little seasoning as you desire).

Preheat your grill, place your grilling basket on the BBQ.  When warmed, pour the vegetables from the bowl into the basket.

When the vegetables are cooked, pour them from the grilling basket into a serving bowl.  Be careful, that grilling basket will be VERY HOT!

And now, they are ready to serve!  And BEAUTIFUL!  Great colours, great taste - and like I said, one of our favourite ways to prepare our vegetables.
