Easy Cajun Grilled Vegetables

This is one of the only ways I like zucchini (apart from being disguised in baked goods or smothered in pasta sauce). I frequently use all zucchini (instead of zucchini and yellow squash). Since we have a vegetable basket for the grill, that's what we cook it in (we don't mess with skewers). We serve it with Cajun Grilled Chicken and baked potatoes. Mmmm.....

The recipe comes from


1/4 cup light olive oil
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (leave out if your kids don't like spicy food)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 zucchinis, cut into 1/2-inch slices
2 large white onions, sliced into 1/2-inch wedges
2 yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch slices


1. In a small bowl, mix together light olive oil, Cajun seasoning, salt, cayenne pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Place zucchinis, white onions, and yellow squash in a bowl, and cover with the olive oil mixture. Cover bowl, and marinate vegetables in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
3. Place marinated vegetable pieces on skewers or directly on the grill. Cook 5 minutes, or to desired doneness. (Or, over indirect heat in a vegetable basket)

Serves 8
