A backyard BBQ isn't complete without these tasty grilled vegies!


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 large red onion, cut into wedges
  • 3 flat mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 3 baby eggplants, halved lengthways
  • 3 baby zucchinis , halved lengthways
  • 1 red capsicum, seeded and cut into six
  • 3 yellow squash, halved
  • 3 tomatoes, halved
  • olive or canola oil spray


  1. Combine oil and juice in a small bowl. Brush vegetables with this mixture.
  2. Heat barbecue and lightly spray with oil. Barbecue vegetables until tender (about 10 minutes depending on thickness), turning after 5 minutes.

Leave root end of onion intact to avoid falling apart.

If a barbecue is unavailable, use a heavy pan with grill markings on a gas hotplate, or place vegetables under a grill on a foil-covered tray, turning after 5 minutes.
