For anyone focussing on healthy eating, or a low-calorie diet, increasing your vegetable intake is an important place to start. There are plenty of simple ways to do that and today I’m sharing one especially easy idea with you.

Foil Packet Grilled Vegetables

Grilling veggies is one of my favourite ways of cooking them when we’re camping or barbequing. They make a perfect, healthy side dish to any meal.

It’s also an easy way to get some great nutrition into my family. Everyone can put together their own packs, making them a great option for pickier eaters, and clean up is a breeze! I especially love serving them with a barbeque salmon meal.

Tips for foil packet cooking:

  • Be sure to cut up any larger vegetables. Smaller vegetables can be left whole, as long as the pieces are relatively uniform in size.
  • It’s important to use something to prevent the vegetables from sticking to the foil, but it doesn’t have to be butter. Try tossing everything in a bit of olive oil or use cooking spray directly on the foil.
  • I find that the best vegetables to use in this foil packet recipe are root vegetables. However, whatever type of vegetables you use, make sure they will cook at approximately the same rate.
  • Smaller pieces mean a faster cooking time.
  • The sheets of foil need to be big enough to fold over, so you don’t want to overstuff! Keep your vegetables in a single layer to be sure they cook evenly.
  • Save the foil by putting all the vegetables into a grill basket, then onto the barbeque or gas grill, and cook over medium heat.
  • Vegetable kabobs are a great alternative to veggie foil packs. Just combine vegetables on skewers, season with a little salt and black pepper, and place directly on the grill.
