Vegetables on Grilling Plank

How to Cook Vegetables on a Grilling Plank

This post isn't so much a recipe; it's more of a how-to. It's important to pick veggies that can stand up to the heat of a grill and not get destroyed. Peppers, asparagus, carrots, beets, corn, eggplant, green beans, zucchini, onions and potatoes are all good choices. Avoid anything too leafy; lettuce, arugula and spinach are all out. 


  1. Soak a grilling plank- any wood type you like, in hot tap water for at least 15 minutes. 
  2. Prep your veggies by peeling or cutting them as needed. Toss them in olive oil and a little salt.
  3. Pre-heat your grill or oven to 350F. When the grill is hot, add them and close the lid. If you are grilling on the outdoor grill/BBQ, make sure to keep a spray bottle of water handy to douse flare-ups.
  4. If you're cooking in the oven, make sure to put a pan or cookie sheet under the grill plank to catch any mess-causing drips. 
  5. Cook veggies until they are done to your liking and enjoy!
