  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 yellow bell peppers
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic pepper
  • Salt

Step 2Brush the vegetables with olive oil. Season them with garlic pepper and salt to taste. Sprinkle the zucchini with herbes de Provence.

Step 3Heat the grill to medium. Grill the zucchini 4 minutes over direct medium heat, turning once. Move to indirect heat for 2 to 4 more minutes, cooking until tender but not mushy.

Step 4Grill the asparagus 5 to 8 minutes over medium direct heat, depending on thickness. Rotate one-quarter turn every minute.

Step 5Grill the bell peppers over direct medium heat 4 minutes, turning once. Move to indirect medium heat for 6 to 8 additional minutes.
