Grilled Veggie Platter

 

  1. Prep Time 15mins
  2. Cook Time 8mins
  3. Total Time 25mins
  4. Serves 4-6p
 

Ingredients

  • 2 Patio Eggplants, sliced diagonally 1/4in thick
  • 6-8 orange or red snackable peppers, halved
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 3 jalapenos, halved and seeded (or not if you want it extra spicy!)
  • 1 red onion, sliced into 1/4 in thick rounds
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced diagonally 1/4in thick
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper 

 

Directions

  1. Step One: Heat grill on medium-high heat.
  2. Step Two: Toss prepped veggies in a bowl with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Be careful with the onion rounds–either toss lightly or do them separately so they don’t fall apart.
