Keep vegetables tender by grilling them in a foil packet. Doing so also makes cleanup simple!
medium Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/8-inch slices
cups baby-cut carrots
ounces green beans
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
teaspoon dried oregano leaves
teaspoon garlic pepper
teaspoon ground cumin
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Spray 24x18-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil with cooking spray.
Toss all ingredients in large bowl. Spoon mixture onto foil. Fold foil over vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
Cover and grill packet 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 20 to 25 minutes, turning packet over after 10 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
Plan on preparing this side dish just before grilling because the potatoes will begin to turn brown if they’re not cooked right after being cut up.
These vegetables complement just about any grilled meat or poultry. Coordinate the grilling times so everything will be done together. Sliced sourdough bread with garlic butter rounds out the menu.
Yukon gold potatoes are small with rich, golden, buttery-sweet flesh. They have a moist texture and are great for grilling.
