Onion-Basil Grilled Vegetables

As the caretaker for a private home, I sometimes cook for the young family who lives there. Although I'm an old-fashioned cook, my job has me trying new flavors. Everyone likes these grilled vegetables. -Jan Oeffler of Danbury, Wisconsin

    Our potatoes and carrots took a long time to finish cooking. We had this on the grill for at least 40 minutes. Also, the flavor was a bit off to us. There is another recipe on TOH that we like better than this one. It's similar but adds in a few things, including soy sauce. This one's not bad, it's just not our favorite. Next time we'll stick with the other recipe.

    The whole family (even toddlers) enjoyed this! Yum! I omitted the peppers and used brussell sprouts. There were no left overs.

    Excellent! I used carrots sliced into thin strips instead of baby carrots.

    I have been using this recipe for a long time and love it. I vary the vegetables and the seasonings sometimes. Easy and favorite of the family's.
