Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh small cauliflower florets
  • 8 fresh Brussels sprouts, cut in half
  • 8 baby yellow pattypan squash
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix butter, parsley and salt. Place vegetables in grill basket (grill "wok").
  • 2
    Place grill basket on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, turning and brushing vegetables with butter mixture 2 or 3 times, until crisp-tender.

  • You can really use almost any of your favorite vegetables; just make sure they are similar in size. You'll need a total of about 4 cups of vegetables.
  • If walnuts aren't your favorite nuts, try cashews, almonds or pecans.
  • Farmers' markets and local gardens may offer unusual varieties of cauliflower and squash in a rainbow of colors, such as green squash and orange or purple cauliflower.
