How to Grill Vegetables

All you’ll want to learn about grilled veggies—which ones, how to cut them, what goes together and equipment—is right here. The veggies are delectable even prepared simply with just a little olive oil and sprinkle of salt added before cooking to crisp-tender. But, we’ve plenty of other ideas to tempt you!

Five Tips for Great Grilled Veggies & Mushrooms

  1. Splurge by buying grill basket or grill wok. Lots of retailers carry them in grilling season or find options to tempt you with a search at the Betty Crocker® Store. You’ll use the basket for versions of Easy Grilled Vegetables and stir fry meals all season long.

  2. Pick up heavy-duty aluminum foil when you shop. Veggie medleys cooked in foil packs or ears of corn and potatoes wrapped in foil benefit from the heavier weight foil.

  3. Peppers, zucchini and other summer squash, and portabella mushrooms can cook right on the grill. When cut, make sure the vegetable pieces are large enough so they don't fall through the grill rack.

  4. Cut vegetables in the same size pieces so they'll cook in the same amount of time when using a grill basket, too. And, watch veggies like green beans and asparagus that can slip through holes in the basket when they’re stirred!

  5. One of the best ways to eat grilled vegetables is off a kabob. Follow our recipe for Grilled Vegetable Kabobs, using potatoes, zucchini, corn on the cob and bell pepper. Or thread your choice of veggies and mushrooms on a metal skewer. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat until crisp-tender, turning several times, about 20 minutes.


Grill corn in its husks just once and it may be how you do it every time. Talk about summer flavor! Or wrap fresh or frozen ears of corn in foil to cook with flavorful butter already added.
