Grilled Vegetables

We all need to have a quick-go-to vegetable dish in order to meet the required half plate of veggies at lunch and dinner. This is a quick one to have on hand, especially if you love to barbecue. But this recipe doesn’t require a grill, you can also just broil or bake your vegetables in a conventional oven too.
