Who doesn't love a juicy grilled burger, steak, or chicken breast? When you're thinking about firing up the BBQ and need some inspiration for what to pair with your delicious main, look no further than your Good & Fugly subscription box. Grilling brings out the natural sweetness in vegetables and imparts a lovely smoky flavour that is perfect for eating.

So, are you ready to get your grill on? Here are 5 of the best veggies to grill on your BBQ.

1. Zucchini

Zucchini is a great veggie for grilling. It's easy to slice into planks and doesn't require any pre-cooking or marinating beforehand. Just slice it up, brush with some olive oil, and throw it on the grill. You'll get beautiful grill marks and a lovely smoky flavour.

2. Eggplant

Eggplant is another fantastic grilling vegetable. It's dense enough that it won't fall through the grill grates, but it's still soft enough to get nice and charred. Cut it into thick slices or chunks and grill away.

3. Corn

Grilled corn is a staple. It's sweet, crunchy, and pairs perfectly with all your grilled meats. Just husk the ears of corn and throw them on the grill. You can even brush them with some butter or olive oil before grilling for extra flavour.

4. Capsicums

Capsicums of all kinds are great for grilling. They get nice and charred on the outside while staying crisp and fresh on the inside. Just slice them up and toss them on the grill.

5. Asparagus

Asparagus is another easy one to grill. Just toss the asparagus spears on the grill, and sear them until they're good and charred. You can also throw some lemon slices on there to add a little extra flavour.

Whether you're grilling up a feast for your friends and family or just looking to make a quick and easy weeknight meal, grilled vegetables are the perfect complement to your next BBQ. If you want to take your grilling game up a notch, be sure to order a Good & Fugly subscription box.

Who knows? Maybe imperfect vegetables taste better than the perfect ones. After all, scrumptious food is meant to be enjoyed, not just looked at.
