Recipe: Foil Packet Veggies

9 times out of 10, if I can get my food cooked on the grill vs cooked any other way, I'm going to choose the grill. I'm not sure if that has something do with my lack of grill availability over the last few years or something do with how delicious food is on the grill. Either way, grilling is always option number one for me.

I've cooked veggies on the grill plenty of times {like this grilled zucchini or this grilled corn} but I've just started branching out into grilling veggies in a foil packet. One of my friends taught me how to do this a few years ago and y'all, it's so good.

Foil Packet Veggies

Olive Oil

Chop up all of your veggies into small, bite sized pieces and mince up some of the garlic. Pull off a piece of tinfoil {always go bigger than you think you'll need} and form it into a little bowl. Drop the veggies in. Drizzle olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Fold up the tinfoil into a little packet and toss on the grill. Cook it for 15-20 minutes & enjoy!

Naturally, I went with minced onions rather than using actual onions {ew!} but I put those in a packet for my parents. I usually cook mine for as long as the meat I'm cooking to go with it on the grill. We grilled chicken this week to go with the veggies, so our packets were on the grill about 20 minutes.

I usually make one packet per person eating just so the packets don't get too large to handle on the grill. See my scribbles on the packets to help me figure out whose is whose?

We had ours this week with grilled chicken and brown rice.

I've made these a bunch of different ways. Sometimes with different types of veggies {bell peppers are excellent cooked this way!} and sometimes with soy sauce instead of olive oil. I've used crushed red pepper or even added in a tiny bit of butter. These things are so easy to make and so easy to customize based on your preferences.

Hope y'all enjoy!
