This is a great technique if you want to serve a mixture of vegetables, like a stir-fry, with your grilled meat or fish. Start the vegetables 10 to 15 minutes before you grill your main course, so that they can get a head start. Move them to a cooler part of the grill to keep warm once they’re done. Grill baskets of all shapes and sizes are available in grocery stores or cooking shops.


1. In a large bowl, combine 2 zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced into 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick half-moons; 1 fennel bulb, trimmed and cut into thin 1/2-inch wedges; 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, cut in half, or quartered if large; and 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces. Drizzle over enough extra-virgin olive oil to coat the vegetables, tossing. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and any chopped herbs you choose.

2. Place the veggies in a grill basket and cook on the hot grill for 15 to 20 minutes, tossing and flipping the basket occasionally, until they’re tender and slightly charred at the edges.
