The Most Popular and Best Vegetable Recipes at Barbecue & Grilling

By

From side dishes to main courses, vegetables are vital to the diet and excellent on the grill. Grilling vegetables is a convenient way to prepare them and a great way to give vegetables extra flavor. The trick to grilling vegetables is to not over cook them and season them lightly with a little oil and a lot of flavor. Whether you are grilling corn on the cob or tomatoes, the grill is the best way to cook all your vegetables. For small items, try wrapping them up in foil with a little butter.

1. Fresh Corn on the Cob

This is the general method for grilling corn on the cob. Remember not to remove the husks, they will hold in the moisture and keep the corn from burning. You might want to pull out as much silk as you can before hand.

2. Grilled Sweet Potatoes

It doesn't take a lot to make delicious sweet potatoes. The secret is to avoid boiling them. These grilled sweet potato slices cook up nice and fast and most of the preparation can be done in advance.

3. Deep Fried Sweet Potato Fries

This is a great alternative to traditional sweet potato recipes and it's really fast and easy. Make sure you cut the sweet potatoes into long steak fries. This gets them cooked quickly. If you are frying a turkey add these to the heated oil once the turkey is out of the way.

Save the oil for something else because these Sweet Potatoes get fried on the grill. The only oil you need is about 1/4 cup to get them crispy. While they grill they get brushed with a salt and lime vinaigrette that adds all the flavor these need to be great.
