Yum! I don't have a grill so I will just have to bake mine. For cooking I usually use safflower oil or grapeseed oil & save the olive oil for my cold dishes. Thank you for this great recipe as we do need to incorporate more veggies in our lifestyle.

Don't waste your money on extra virgin olive oil for cooking, use the the regular olive oil, you won't notice any difference in taste. Save the EVOO for cold salads. In fact olive oil should only be used for low temp cooking as it breaks down forming some cancer producing compounds in high heat. I have switched to rice bran oil or grape seed oil.Much higher smoke point and lighter taste

yellow squshb works great too. I cook all veg right on the grill, I like the grill marks and the taste it gets them.

My question is in the Nutritional Facts Box for
Char-grilled Vegetable slices by patbranam
It states: Servings Per Recipe: 1(?) This does not seem correct
The recipe calls for
1 large eggplant
3 large zucchini
2 red peppers
3 large firm tomatoes
Thank you.
There is no mention of how many servings this recipe makes; nor does pat mention what a serving is, ie: 1/2 cup, 1 cup, etc.
Can anyone help. Surely these ingredients are not 1 serving!! Thank you!

Another great recipe! I make this all the time and eat it as a meal with a little wild or brown rice. Very tastey.

This is an excellent sidedish for any meal. I love the way vegetables taste cooked on the grill.
