Rustic Grilled Vegetables Recipe - SavvyMom

When the warm weather is here it’s time for making things easy. And really, what could be easier than loading a bunch of fresh cut up veggies on your BBQ and grilling them to perfection? Tired of the basics (we’re looking at you peppers and zucchini)? Don’t fret. It’s time to think outside the box for delicious rustic grilled vegetables.

You can grill pretty much any veggie you like, including sweet corn, vine tomatoes, squash, asparagus, red onions, mushrooms, and more. So it’s time to get creative, and get grilling those veggies! If they’re chopped big enough you don’t need any fancy BBQ gadgets, although if you make them enough it’s money well-spent.
