I am in need of a simple, easy way to grill veggies...we have a grilling basket and have never used it. What veggies do you use, and do use EVOO, or FF salad dressing???.

EVOO = Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Just about anything is great in the grill basket: mushrooms, onions, peppers (green, yellow, red, orange), asparagus, zucchini..

I make a huge amount of mixed veggies on Sunday in my grill basket and eat them all week. I use pepper and Mrs. Dash and either a Misto sprayer of Olive Oil or PAM Olive Oil spray. Just a couple of squirts is all you need...

How much olive oil can we have? The recommended list simply says 1..

Comment #2

That is an error in the printing, Amy. 1 TEASPOON of olive oil has approximately 40 calories and 4.5g fat (our FAT serving should be approximately 45 calories and 5g fat). Therefore, the amount should be a full teaspoon..

However, when I use the Misto or the PAM Olive Oil spray, it is so little over a large amount of vegetables, I count it as a free food (20 calories) for the day (no more than 3, no more than 20 calories each)...

I have never used a grilling basket but I grill veggie skewers all the time. I use any combination of mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, squash, pineapple. I put them on the skewers, spray with canola oil spray or Pam, sprinkle with seasoningsI use Mrs. Dash and a very SMALL amount of season salt. I grill until they are done and I like them to have some grill marksdelicious! I make extra skewers as the veggies are good warmed up the next day...

We grilled onions on the grill this evening: slice onions 1/2 inch thick, brush with favorite grilling saucewe used homemade teriyaki, put on closely spaced mesh wire on grill or in grill basket..

The children love to eat grilled zuccini slices as soon as I can get them off of the grill and toss some salt on them..

I spray my veggies with some PAM olive oil cooking spray. Sprinkle with some McCormick Grill mates Roasted Garlic and Herb spice mix over them, then drizzle some Balsamic vinegar over them. This is while they're either wrapped in foil, or put in a disposable foil pan and just cook them on the grill like that. Great stuff. Works great roasted this way too...

Comment #6

Never grill with EVOO! EVOO has a very low smoke point so you are just wasting expensive oil and ruining the taste of it. I marinate veggies in balsamic vinegar, fresh garlic and herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage) and add just a drop of oil. Other times I spray with olive oil from a misto and season with salt and pepper or one of the McCormicks spices. FF italian is a good choice for marinating too. Play around with different spices and flavors and see what you like..

Leftover grilled vegetables are great cold on salads during the week. Roasted peppers are great on salads too and no oil is needed...

I have a grilling basket and just spray it lightly with a little Pam Olive Oil. I grill zuchinni and yellow squash, portobello mushrooms, green, red, yellow, and orange bell pappers, and onion. I marinate everything in a FF dressing and season it with a little garlic and fresh dill...
