Veggies marinated in balsamic vinegar and soy sauce and cooked in a grill basket until smoky, slightly charred, and tender-crisp. A healthy and tasty side dish! Try it with whatever veggies you prefer - asparagus, eggplant, green beans, etc!

During the summer, we love to cook vegetables on the grill and these balsamic grilled veggies are fabulous! We did marinate them overnight and the veggies really absorbed all the goodness from the balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. The marinade is tangy with a hint of sweet flavor. When grilled, the charring enhances the flavors even more. A great way to get the kids to eat their veggies!

How To Make balsamic grilled vegetables

  • Cut vegetables in a resealable container.
    1
    Cut all the veggies into approximately 1" chunks. Place them in a large bowl with a tight-fitting lid or a gallon resealable bag.
  • Marinade ingredients whisked together in a bowl.
    2
    Measure marinade ingredients and pour over veggies. Marinate for at least 1 hour (even better when it's overnight).
  • Grilling vegetables on a grill pan.
    3
    Drain vegetables reserving liquid. Heat veggie pan/basket over grill until screaming hot. Add the drained marinated veggies and cook with the grill lid closed stirring after 3-4 minutes until tender-crisp with some charring. Remove to a serving bowl and sprinkle with some of the marinade, if desired.
