  • Grilled Vegetable Basket (optional)


  • 2 whole green or yellow zucchini, sliced thick on a bias
  • 1 whole White or Red Onion, sliced in ½ inch thick slices
  • 1 whole red pepper, cut in thirds (or halved lengthwise)
  • 1 whole yellow pepper, cut in thirds (or halved lengthwise)
  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 large portabello mushrooms, caps cleaned and gills removed
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon aged balsamic dressing optional
  • 1 teaspoon finishing salt optional


  • Pre-slice all the vegetables because once they go on over flame, they will cook quickly. Toss the vegetables in the olive oil, salt and pepper in a large sheet tray or bowl.
  • Preheat the grill using the gradient method and lump charcoal. Target the temperature on the hottest side at 550 degrees Fahrenheit while the side with less charcoal is around 375 - 400 degrees F.
  • Over the highest heat place the onions, peppers, and squash. Grill for a few minutes per side until you see grill marks and then finish them on the cooler side.
  • Over the middle of the grate and heat, add the broccoli, asparagus, and similar sized items.
  • Leave the cooler side to move veggies to as they need to finish and so they don't burn.
  • Remove the veggies as they finish. Scrape charred skin off the peppers and serve on a large serving platter with tongs.
  • Drizzle a light coating of aged balsamic and a sprinkle of finishing salt.
    These are great served hot or cold.


Optional - For the mushrooms marinade, remove gills from mushroom cap and the stem. Marinade for 2 hours prior to grilling.
