Grilled Vegetables

Vegetable side dish recipes are particularly great for grilling because many vegetables hold their shape well when being grilled and also keep all their flavor.
1 cup Fresh Snap peas
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup broccoli florets
2 garlic clove sliced thin
4 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar[ You can substitute with any vinegar]
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Cooked rice for serving [optional]
Place snap peas,carrots,broccoli and garlic in a large bowl.
In a small bowl,whisk together olive oil,vinegar,basil,oregano,salt and pepper.
Pour over the vegetables and stir to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 30 mins,stirring occasionally. Heat the grill and carefully spoon the vegetables and cook until crisp-tender.
Serve over rice.
For who dont have Grill, can place the vegetables in a baking tray and cook them in the oven at 350F for 15-20 mins or till vegetables are tender..
