Grilled Veggies

For Christmas this year my mom gave Hubby a few grill accessories, including a basket for veggies. We love grilling in the summer but haven’t really done much grilling with veggies, other than corn and jalapenos. I thought they basket would be great for making all sorts of different veggies.
