Healthy grilling of vegetables
Barbecues are a popular summer pastime. If you want to enjoy not only meat but also vegetables on the grill, you should follow a few rules.
Vegetables should be washed and peeled before grilling. Zucchini, peppers, aubergines, onions and tomatoes are particularly recommended. They can be prepared very well on the grill.
If you like it a little spicier, you can also marinate your vegetables with herbs. Basil, parsley, thyme and rosemary are particularly suitable for this. If you like it a little sweeter, you can also marinate your vegetables with honey or syrup.
Vegetables on the grill not only taste delicious, they are also very healthy.

I cook most vegetables in the oven or on the grill. It’s easy, healthy and tastes good. Plus it saves you so much time. I recommend washing the veggies first, then chopping them into bite-sized pieces, and then seasoning them with oil, salt, and pepper. If you like, you can also add herbs. Then spread the vegetables on a baking sheet or grill rack and bake or grill at high temperature.
