Grilled Vegetables

Grilling vegetables is not about having special equipment. The best vegetables to grill are the ones that are ripe in your garden or fresh at the market.

2 bell peppers ( remove core and seeds, quarter )
1 large red onion ( peel and quarter )
1 medium eggplant ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1 medium zucchini ( cut lengthwise in half-inch slices or rounds )
1/2 lb asparagus ( cut off woody ends )
2 medium tomatoes ( cut in half, or a bunch of grape tomatoes, leave whole )
2 large portobello mushrooms ( I like them whole )
1/2 c olive oil ( or more )
Juice from a half lemon or lime
Generous pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
