Grilling Vegetables - Draw Out Moisture

In addition to drawing out moisture from high content vegetables, there are other factors you will want to keep in mind when grilling all vegetables.
  • Vegetables should be grilled over a medium heat. The length of cooking time will vary depending on the type of vegetable and how it has been prepared.
  • Vegetables are done when they have browned grill marks and are tender when pierced with a fork or the tip of a knife.
  • Cut vegetables into uniform size pieces so they will cook evenly.
  • Use skewers or a grill basket to prevent small chunks of vegetables from falling through the grate. If you choose to use skewers, 2 skewers will help prevent vegetables from spinning while turning on the grill.
  • Before placing on the grill, brush oil onto vegetables to prevent them from sticking to the grates.
  • When grilling harder vegetables, such as potatoes, with other vegetables, they may need to be cooked before grilling to ensure that all the vegetables are done at the same time.
  • Brushing vegetables with butter or favorite oil during grilling helps to keep the vegetables from sticking to the grill grate. Use a non-stick cooking spray on the grate before heating the grill to help prevent sticking.
