Grilled Summer Squash Recipe

Grilling food in foil packets creates steam so food cooks in its own juices, which makes the contents flavorful and lower in fat. Best of all: no cleanup! —Lisa Finnegan, Forked River, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 medium yellow summer squash, sliced
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, sliced
  • 1 large sweet onion, halved and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Divide between two double thicknesses of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. x 12 in.). Fold foil around vegetable mixture and seal tightly.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Open foils carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings.
