I don't know about you, but the summer has finally arrived in the Midwest, and I just want to grill *everything*!!! You can see all my low carb grilling recipes over on my Summer page!

Grilling veggies isn't hard, but I think it's useful to know which vegetables you should choose. Here's a handy list of suggestions:

  • zucchini
  • bell peppers
  • Brussels sprouts
  • asparagus
  • eggplant
  • green beans
  • mushrooms
  • radishes
  • summer squash

For further details on the carb count of each one and recommended serving sizes, check out my guide to low carb vegetables!

I chose to make a HUGE amount of low carb grilled vegetables – and really aimed for a range of colors and textures.  So grab your favorites and get grilling!

How to Make Low Carb Grilled Vegetables

Chop or slice the vegetables keeping in mind not to make them too small so that they fall between the grill bars. 

Add them to a large bowl, add some olive oil, and season well with salt and pepper.

Cook the veggies on a preheated grill set to high, turning as required. Because I had so many to grill, I set the right side of the grill to low and placed a grilling basket there. Once the vegetables were cooked I added them to the basket, keeping them warm while I cooked the rest. Cooking times will vary, of course, but you quickly get into the swing of how long each type of veggie takes to cook.

Now at this point, you could just transfer them to a serving platter. They look very tasty and perfect for anyone following a keto diet!

But I knew it just needed a little something else… so I sliced up some mini mozzarella balls (a great addition to this dish!) and ground some black pepper over the top. Perfect!

I don’t have a grill. Can I roast in my toaster oven/air fryer?

I don't have either of those appliances I'm afraid, so I haven't tried it! But as long as you stick to low carb veggies I'm sure you can't go too far wrong!
