Easiest Marinated Grilled Veggies

These colorful grilled veggies are a regular here.  Alongside your favorite grilled steak, chicken, pork, or seafood, they are truly the only side you need…and as easy as they are flavorful and satisfying!

The only thing needed is equal parts of three basic ingredients:  lemon juice, soy sauce, and olive oil.  I steep the vegetables in the “A Third-A Third-A Third Marinade” for as little as 20-30 minutes or as long as a couple of hours.  Either way, the flavor shines through.  Any vegetable fit for grilling will work.  We often include zucchini, peppers, onions, and eggplant. My personal favorite are portobello mushrooms.  Often times, I make another batch for chicken which I marinate up to all day.

Give it a try with your favorites.  For the original recipe and a few extra suggestions as to what can be done with this versatile marinade, simply click on this post.  And if you have leftovers, they sure taste great in this Grilled Pesto Veggiewich recipe!
