Grilling is a sure way to add extra layers of flavor upon already flavorful vegetables. The high heat caramelizes, imparting not only a smokiness but also a satisfying sweetness that elevates any humble vegetable. Keep the following in mind to ensure the best results.
1) Use only a light amount of oil when brushing the vegetables; an excessive coating causes flare-ups, which impart off putting notes. 2) Keep a squeeze bottle of water nearby to put out any flare-ups before they ruin the taste of your food. 3) Salt your vegetables moments before they hit the hot grill - otherwise the salt will draw moisture to the surface, preventing char.
