Grilled BBQ Vegetables
These Grilled BBQ Vegetables have been on rotation multiples times per week ever since grilling season popped up. I had been wanting a grill basket since last summer and finally picked one up…well actually the hubs picked it up for me from a big box hardware store. I’m sure you can find them at any major hardware store or where they sell grills, and of course online!
What I love about the one I purchased is that the “holes” are actually more like slits so you can grill small vegetables, like corn off the cob, without worrying about them falling through.
In this recipe I use my BBQ Seasoning and Rub to give these veggies a bold full BBQ flavor. Combined with that char grilled flavor, these will be your new favorite side dish! And like a lot of my recipes, you can use ANY veggies you like. Last time I made these I used asparagus, fresh corn off the cob, summer squash, and brussels sprouts. PERFECT if you frequent the farmer’s market in the summer, or grow your own veggies!
Savory, charred perfection; serve these up with your favorite grilled chicken, pork, or steaks for a healthy summer side! Try them along side any of these recipes!

Grilled BBQ Vegetables
- 1 med sweet potato chopped
- 3 baby red potatoes chopped
- 1 red bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 small red onion chopped
- 1 cup brussels sprouts chopped
- 1 1/2 tbsp BBQ Seasoning and Rub recipe blend linked in post
- 2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
Add all of the chopped veggies into a bowl. Drizzle with the olive/avocado oil, and sprinkle with BBQ seasoning. Stir to coat all of the veggies. Adjust oil and seasoning to taste depending on volume of veggies.
Preheat grill to 350-400 degrees. Add veggies to grill basket and grill for about 30 minutes or until veggies are fork tender. Stir occasionally.
See the original blog post for the BBQ Seasoning and Rub blend. It is a combo of garlic, onion, parsley, chili powder, salt, smoked paprika, cumin, black pepper, cayenne, and dried mustard. The perfect summer bbq seasoning blend!
If you do not have a grill basket you can make foil packets. Divide veggies up into 4 servings and package them in foil that is tightly sealed. Grill for 20-30 minutes, flip packets over halfway through cooking.
Any veggies you like would be delicious in this. Asparagus, cauliflower, and all the summer squashes from your farmers markets and gardens!
