Grilled Marinated Veggies

Grilled Marinated Veggies

2 red bell peppers, seeded and quartered
2 medium zucchinis, quartered lengthwise
2 medium yellow squash, quartered lengthwise
2 medium leeks, root trimmed (not removed), halved lengthwise

For the marinade:
1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Mix oil, garlic, salt, and pepper (and shallots) in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Add peppers, zucchini, squash and leeks. Gently shake bag to coat the veggies. Marinate in fridge for one to three hours, turning occasionally.

Prepare a medium-low grill. Add peppers. Cook until tender, turning once, about ten minutes. About two minutes after adding peppers, add zucchini, squash and leeks. Cook until tender and slightly charred, turning once. A slight brown char is best, but not too much. This should take about eight minutes. Note, take care not to burn the leeks! They are quite delicate and will burn before you can say, “them’s fightin’ words!”
