Best Summer BBQ Vegetables Recipes
Summer vegetables and beautiful, bold, and bright and are perfect for cooking up on the grill. There’s something about the grill char lines on a piece of freshly cooked zucchini that is so appetizing!
You can BBQ almost any vegetable, the only real challenge is that veggies cook at very different rates, so you need to make sure you cook different types of vegetables at different times so that they are all done to perfection.
Let’s get started with some of the best recipes for cooking vegetables on the BBQ.
Spicy Grilled Eggplant with Red Pepper, Parsley, and Mint
This Spicy Grilled Eggplant dish checks off all the dietary boxes, as it’s low-carb, Keto-friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, and – yes – vegan.
Grilled Vegetables with Goat Cheese & Reduced Balsamic Vinegar
I love this dish because of the colors AND the flavors. Perfect as a summer side dish, but can also serve as the main course if you are serving up a fully vegetarian dinner.
The mix of vegetables includes red & yellow peppers, eggplant, zucchini, green onions, asparagus, and Spanish onions, plus goat cheese (although Feta will do in a pinch) and a balsamic vinegar reduction.

Simply grill 1 side of the dough for 1-2 minutes, flip it over, top the cooked side with goat cheese, charred bell peppers and red onions, olive oil, and some lemony arugula and then grill for another 1-2 minutes. Fast, easy, and delicious!
