Red wine marinades lend themselves particularly well to vegetables you are planning to grill. In this version, the bold flavor of the wine blends perfectly with the more subtle flavors of soy sauce, garlic, lemon and basil. For best results, use a good-quality red, rather than a “cooking wine”.
Great vegetable candidates for grilling include:
- Mushrooms (button, cremini, portabella) – skewer small mushrooms whole; grill portabella flat
- Yellow squash, zucchini & eggplant – cut into large cubes and skewer, or slice thickly and grill flat
- Cherry tomatoes & pearl onions – skewer whole
- Asparagus – place spears cross-ways on the grill to prevent them from falling through
