The grill is not just a place for meat anymore. Some of my favorite foods to cook on the grill are fruits and veggies. Grilled vegetables tossed with a little olive oil and garlic over cooked pasta is an easy last-minute way to get your vegetable servings for the day. Grilled fruits are also becoming very popular. Have you ever tried grilled pineapple or peaches over vanilla ice cream? When cooked on the grill, the natural sugars of fruits and vegetables caramelize, and they take on a delicious sweet and slightly smoky flavor.
