Grilled Vegetable Medley Foil Packets

Vegetable Medley
Summertime is a bounty full of fresh and mouth-watering vegetables.  My husband and I created these grilled vegetable medley packets for dinner on Sunday night.  We thought the kids would enjoy it because it was like opening a present.  They had no idea what was inside.

The vegetables we chose for the packets were not our kids favorites, but they did decide to give them a second try because of how they were presented.

Grilled Vegetable Medley Foil Packets


3-4 Ears of corn, cut into 3 inch chunks
1-2 Zucchini, cut into chunks
1-2 Yellow squash, cut into chunkc
1 Purple onion, diced or sliced
1 Green, red, yellow, or orange pepper, diced or chunks
Any other vegetables you would like to add, eggplant, tomatoes, mushrooms...
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tsp salt
1/2 Tsp pepper
2-3 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1-2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 sprig of rosemary, pulled away from sprig
2 Tbsp butter

Combine all the ingredients except for the butter in a large bowl.  

Spray each individual piece of foil with cooking spray.  Add vegetable to foil and place a small amount of butter on top of each mound of vegetables.  

Fold the foil around the vegetables and seal tight.  If you are not using heavy duty aluminum foil you can double the foil and then wrap the vegetables.

Place on grill about 20 mins.  You may want to turn it once so the vegetables do not burn to the bottom.

Please use caution when opening these packets to allow the steam to escape.
