2. Baste vegetables with olive oil.

Use a pastry brush and then place skewers onto a griddle or barbecue, or under the grill. Watch them and ask an adult to turn them over a few times during cooking so that the vegetables will brown all over. Serve and enjoy!

Consider grilled vegetables as a great side to accompany the main dish. Skewering is an ideal method. Rotate the veggies once using metal tongs. They should take only a few minutes to cook.
