My contribution to this recipe is just the photography...the rest was taken care of by my dear hubby.
Grilled Vegetables is one dish we have been having pretty often in times recent, especially on the weekends. Its simple, quick to make, very healthy and delicious too. Sometimes we gratin it with cheese, sometimes without and the choice of vegetables depend on what's seasonal, fresh and available in the pantry :-)

The colours are a treat for the eyes and add to the appeal of the dish...as the Germans say "Das Auge isst mit" - the eyes eat also, loosely translated :-)
Together with organic whole wheat bread, the dish is a complete meal.
