I have already in the past bought assorted mixed vegetables microwave the time they tell you to,but they always were mushy & bland. Now if I do not have fresh to grill & I have the frozen I grill, last night I had a mix in a bag of squash,zucchini carrots & peppers. I sprayed reynold's wrap & placed vegetables on & grilled added some seasoning & WOW what a difference.

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese can go nicely with some grilled vegetable. Grilled Vegetables areHealthy.Vegetables are cheap, especially basic ones like mushrooms, carrots and onions, which means that grilled vegetable recipes are cheap to make. Prevent your veggies from drying out on the grill by soaking them in cold water first. Your grilled vegetables are ready when you can pierce them easily with a knife tip or fork, Most vegetables can be cooked whole or cut the same size to cook evenly.
When shopping for groceries stick to the perimeter of the store and avoid the aisles. The perimeter usually contains your produce, meats, dairy aisle and bakery allowing to reduce the amount of processed and sugary foods you purchase.
The frozen vegetable aisle is also valuable, but avoid the sections of ice cream and frozen pizzas.
On the Holiday Grill Veggies to help your diet...SO VERY EASY
Grill up some veggies....Eggplant is especially good. When grill is hot, slice eggplant about 1/2-inch thick. Whisk together olive oil / vinegar, garlic,herbs, pepper. Brush both sides of the eggplant slices with the oil & vinegar mixture. Grill 20 minutes. Or how about grilled Brocolli w/lemon, or Zucchini, squash, asparagus, peppers, or mushrooms drizzled w/olive oil..make Vegetable Kebabs~marinate oil and vinegar mixture for 15 minutes, then grill for 12 minutes. Try foil packets.
If you making vegetable kabobs, choose vegetables that have the same cooking time. Baby tomatoes grill much quicker than sliced carrots. Other choices are tomatoes, onion, asparagus, potatoes, sweet corn. Just watch the carbs. NOTHING COMPLICATED ABOUT GRILLED VEGGIES. Grilled Vegetable are EASY!!!
