I consider these Cajun grilled baby veggies to be the perfect side dish. They take absolutely no time to throw together and they taste fantastic. Just about any vegetable can be used, just make sure that all of them are roughly the same size so they cook evenly. I needed something light and fresh to go with my just-grilled sliders. I figured, small burgers, small veggies!
Weber makes an absolutely fantastic vegetable basket for the grill. It heats up fast and evenly and is the perfect basket for making these grilled vegetables, whether you have a Weber grill or not!
