Grilled Vegetable Packets
Makes 10 servings
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup coarse-ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or rice wine vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into ¼-inch-thick strips
  • 2 yellow squash, cut into ¼-inch-thick strips
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored, sliced

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together honey, mustard, and vinegar. Slowly add olive oil, whisking to combine. Add salt and pepper, whisking well.
  2. Divide vegetables between 2 (1-gallon) resealable bags. Pour honey mixture evenly over vegetables. Refrigerate for 4 hours, turning halfway through.
  3. Tear 5 (12-inch) pieces aluminum foil. Evenly divide vegetables into 5 portions, and place in center of each piece of foil. Pull sides of foil over vegetables, and fold over to hold together. Fold ends of foil in toward packet to seal.
