Jewels in the Vegetable Crown

Grilled vegetables turn any meal into a feast.  Almost any kind of vegetable that you cook can be grilled on a barbecue.  Some take longer than others so it is best to combine like textures where possible.

This recipe is very simple, using only red, green, yellow and orange bell peppers, along with sweet white onions and olive oil.

Grilled Bell Peppers with Onions

  • 1 small pepper of each of the 4 colors
  • 1/4 large white onion, sliced into rings

  • 1-1/2 to 2 tsp olive oil

  4. Place the veggies on the grill pan and spray the tops with olive oil.
