Grilled Vegetables with Romesco Dip

Grilled Vegetables with Romesco Dip
Grilling veggies is soooo much fun! Choose whatever veggies you fancy, taking advantage of what’s available seasonally. Other veggies that are fabulous grilled would be cherry tomatoes, pattypan squash, radicchio, romaine and mushrooms. Increase quantities of veggies as needed as they will disappear FAST! Serve your grilled veggies with Romesco Dip for the perfect Mediterranean flair.
Serves: about 4
  • 1 large eggplant, trimmed and sliced (no need to peel)
  • 2 medium yellow squash, trimmed, cut in half vertically
  • 1 large zucchini, trimmed, cut in half vertically
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Oil for grill
  1. Marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Arrange prepared vegetables on a tray. Brush vegetables evenly with marinade.
  2. Grilling Vegetables: lightly oil grill; heat to medium-high setting. Grill vegetables for about 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear and vegetables are nicely charred. Remove from grill; cut into smaller pieces if desired. Serve with Romesco Dip.
