Grilling vegetables is a simple, delicious way to enjoy their fresh flavors, and preparing them couldn’t be easier: Simply toss veggies in a little oil and salt (plus fresh herbs, if desired) before grilling over medium-high heat. Prepare them as skewered shish kebabs, in a grill basket or foil packets, or place them directly on the grill.

Easy Grilled Vegetables

If you’re grilling a variety of veggies, start with those that take longest to cook, then add others as you go along. Remember to watch carefully and turn often. Veggies are done when they can be pierced easily with a fork, but you can use the instructions and cooking times below for perfectly grilled garden goodness.

Corn: 30 minutes Pull back husks and remove silk, then fold husks back into place. Soak ears in water for 15 minutes before grilling, or grill shucked corn, which doesn’t need to be soaked, for about 20 minutes. Try slathering ears with butter, garlic, lime juice, cilantro and cumin before grilling. Or serve grilled corn rolled in crumbled queso fresco cheese, lime juice and cayenne pepper.

Eggplant: 25 minutes Cut into thick slices and grill over medium heat.

Potatoes: 15 minutes Slice potatoes into 1/4-inch-thick pieces, or leave small ones whole. Parboil potatoes for a couple of minutes and drain before coating them in oil and grilling. Potatoes also grill beautifully when coated in mayonnaise and mustard.
