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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
