Enjoy Grilled Vegetables

Enjoy Grilled Vegetables
Many people will grill out during Memorial Day weekend.  While many Americans do not get 2 ½ cups of vegetables per day, grilling vegetables is an easy way to enjoy these nutrient packed foods.

After firing up the grill, place grill rack four to five inches above coals  or prepare grill for direct grilling on medium.

Choose a combination of vegetables.  I like to use a combination of carrots, sliced potatoes and onions, and cubed sweet potatoes.  Put vegetables in bowl and toss with olive oil and sprinkle with a little sea salt.

Tear off at least 30 inches of tin foil and fold in half.  Place tin foil on flat surface and place vegetables in center of foil.  Bring long sides together and fold to make a pouch.  Turn in ends.

Place on grill and cook 17 to20 minutes.  To serve, open top of pouch.  Enjoy!
