3 Tbsp - Olive Oil
2 c. - Zucchini, sliced
2 c. - Summer Squash, sliced
2 c. - Bell Peppers (Green, Red, Yellow, Orange), coarsley chopped
1 c. - Carrots, strips or sliced
1 c. - Apples, coarsley chopped (optional)
The beauty of a vegetable medley is that you can add everything you like and not as much of the things that you don't care much for. When I added apple to my medley, my kids didn't understand, but after they tried it, they said it really gave it a different taste. Some people may not care for it though... and that's fine! It's all about personalizing it to your tastes.
After chopping, slicing and preparing the variety of vegetables, place all items inside a foil baking bag. If you do not have any, use a few sheets of foil (double line it) to make a pack for the vegetables. Keep in mind the the veggie pack needs to be durable enough to withstand turning and the direct fire of the grill, oven or campfire. Fold in edges where needed.
I used to cook these in butter and of course, my kids loved them, but as we turn the healthier cheek, we cook them in olive oil and from time to time, we'll sprinkle with a dash of parmesian cheese just for fun.
Be very careful not to poke holes in the foil bag as the oil and/or juices may leak and cause difficulties on the grill or in the oven. Use caution when handling the bag and cutting it open as the bag and contents will be very hot.
