Foil-Packed Veggies

Roberto Caruso

No muss, no fuss, just prep at home and cook over the fire. These delicious veggies go perfectly with any main dish.


  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in 1/2-in. strips

  • 1 onion, cut in 1/2-in. wedges

  • 1 zucchini, cut in 1/2-in. coins

  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat barbecue to medium-high.

  • Cut four 12-in.-square pieces of foil.

  • Divide pepper, onion, zucchini and peas among foil squares. Drizzle with oil, then sprinkle with garlic powder and salt. Toss to coat. Close and crimp foil very loosely over vegetables, creating a packet.

  • Barbecue foil packets, lid closed, flipping halfway through, until vegetables are tender-crisp, 5 to 7 min. Remove packets and let stand 2 min before opening. Serve with One-Pot Mac and Cheese.
