4 tips for the best grilled vegetables

  1. Cut the vegetables to the same thickness so that they grill at the same speed. If you cut the vegetables too thin, they will be very soft and fall apart on the grill.
  2. Follow the golden rule of grilling: oil what you’re grilling, not the grill itself .
  3. Root simply . Sprinkle the vegetables generously with salt and ground black pepper. When grilling, it absorbs salt, which will increase its natural sweetness. If you want, you can add dried herbs such as oregano, mint, tarragon or basil.
  4. Grill under a closed lid . This will create the same environment as in the oven.

If we do not serve vegetables as a side dish to grilled meats, but as a separate grilled dish, then we usually only add a piece of bread to it.

It is definitely better if it is also grilled for a while. The taste of grilled vegetables will definitely be improved by some of the cold sauces made from yogurt or mayonnaise or popular dips made from different ingredients and thus also the different flavors in which we dip the vegetables.
