These grilled veggies have a delicious balsamic marinade. I like to make a huge batch of grilled veggies to have on hand for the week to use as a side, salad topping, or stir into my lazy pasta dinner.


Units Scale
  • 34 bell peppers, quartered
  • 1 eggplant, cut into 1/2” thick rounds
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 bunch spring green onions
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, for garnish

For the Balsamic Marinade:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Garlic Herb Dipping Oil:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup basil, packed
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.
  2. Place the vegetables (except for the green onions) in a Ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Seal the bag and gently shake to coat the veggies. Place in the refrigerator and marinade for about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the garlic herb dipping oil, place of the ingredients into a food processor or mini chopper and pulse to blend and combine (this could also be done in a bowl if you don’t have either of these tools. Simply mince the herbs and garlic and whisk in with the rest of the ingredients.)
  4. Turn the grill on medium-low heat. Place the veggies directly on the grill (or on a grill pan if you prefer) and grill for 8 minutes on each side. For more delicate vegetables, such as the green onions and asparagus, cook for 5-10 minutes, tossing every few minutes to keep them from burning.
  5. When the vegetables are cooked, remove from the grill. Add to a plate and garnish with extra parsley and/or basil and a sprinkle of pine nuts. Serve with the garlic herb dipping oil and enjoy!
