Enjoy Grilled Veggies This Summer {recipe}

During the hot Summer months, we love to grill outside as much as we can.  But, if you’re like me, I was having to work equally hard inside to cook the side items for hamburgers, steak, etc.  That’s when I started getting smart and preparing everything to cook on the grill!  And with our garden (hopefully) producing lots of zucchini and squash this summer, we will be having grilled veggies a lot!  You can grill just about anything and it saves the inside of the house from getting hot from the oven and stove.

Grilled veggies are easy and make a great side dish for your family bbq. Enjoy this grilled squash and zucchini recipe!


  • 2-3 squash or zucchini per family of four
  • butter or oil
  • salt
  • foil



1. Chop your squash and zucchini about 1/4" thick.

2. Spray the foil with cooking spray or melted butter.

3. Place the sliced veggies on a piece of foil in one layer. 

4. Dot every other squash with butter, pour melted butter or oil over the top, or place a few pats of butter on top of the squash. 

5. Salt the squash. You can also add other spices, such as garlic, oregano, pepper, whatever you are feeling or what complements your meal.

6. Finally, put another sheet of foil on top and crease the edges up so as to create a pocket so the veggies will steam and cook thoroughly.

7. Then, place on a hot grill (high heat) and cook for about 5-10 minutes then flip the entire foil packet and cook another 5-10 minutes. 

8. Remove from heat and serve!

I would totally eat this! That's saying a lot, because I only like about 4 different types of veggies. Squash happens to be one of them. I am definitely going to try this!
