Start by preheating the grill over medium high heat until a steady temperature between 400ºF-450ºF is reached.
Meanwhile prep the veggies you'll be using, there's no need to make this entire recipe, just pick and choose what you'll need.
Mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, and sea salt together in a bowl. Then using a silicone brush, lightly coat the veggies with the olive oil mixture.
Place the veggies on the preheated grill and cook until crisp tender. Zucchini, peppers, and onions take about 8-10 minutes. Mushrooms take about 4 minutes. The medium sized tomatoes and sliced eggplant take 4-6 minutes. Corn on the cob takes about 8 minutes turning every time it begins to brown. Green onions take just 3-4 minutes, or until barely wilted. And gypsy peppers take about 6 minutes, turn after one side begins to brown.
As your veggies finish cooking, add them to a serving platter. When they're all done, serve them with your favorite sauce and a grilled protein of choice.
The ingredients listed here are for a giant grilled veggie platter that will serve 12! I like to figure on 8 ounces or 1/2 pound of veggies per person.So it's easy enough to downsize for a family dinner. For 4 servings I recommend 2 pounds of veggies tossed together with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 clove minced garlic, and a sprinkle of sea salt.And just remember the measurements don't need to be too exact for grilling veggies. The only thing to keep in mind, is not to get too crazy with the garlic and overwhelm the subtle veggie flavors.
