How To Make Grilled Vegetables in Foil

3 medium onions peeled and quartered
1 bunch of broccoli flowerets
2 small yellow squash in 1" slices
1 green pepper in 1/2" strips
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoon of salt
3 tablespoons of butter
olive oil to drizzle over vegetables (not too much just drizzle)

Grilled vegetables are a great healthy addition to any outside grilling event. They are so easy to do and you can get really creative with what you add to the vegetables. You don't have to add exactly what vegetables are on the ingredients list, you can get creative here also and add whatever you like instead. This is very easy to prepare. First you will need to blanch the onions in a sauce pan with boiling water for about 3 minutes. Next get a piece of heavy duty foil and make sure its big enough to completely wrap around all of the vegetables so that you can enclose them totally in the foil, don't worry about breathing holes, the goal here is to steam the vegetables using the grill. Add the vegetables inside the foil, along with all of the ingredients above. Don't forget to drizzle a little bit of olive oil over all of your vegetables. This helps them really cook well. Now completely seal the foil over all of the ingredients and throw it on top of the grill. Grill the vegetables for about 30 minutes while flipping occasionally so that it cooks evenly. Whatever you do though, don't rip a hole in the foil while flipping. Depending on how hot your grill is you may want to cook longer. Don't be afraid to experiment. This is perfect for people that don't like to eat meat, and want a healthy alternative while having a family cookout. Have fun and be creative. Happy Grilling!
