All sort of good ones. I like zucchini or yellow squash, halved or quartered the long way, then brush with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, or garlic salt and pepper, or salt and lemon pepper, or salt with dill weed, or.... well you get the idea. Be careful not to overcook, they go from perfect with a slight crunch to mushy very quickly, but they are great when cooked hot and fast.

Grilled bell peppers and fennel is a nice combination. Onions and mushrooms always grill nicely too. Another one is cabbage steaks. Slice a head of green cabbage into about 1" thick steaks, brush with oil and season, then grill on medium on both sides until just tender with a bit of light char.

Put veggies straight on the grill if the pieces are large enough. If not get a grill pan with holes in it to get the same grilled flavor with smaller pieces.

I personally would not use root veggies....much too dense for the method but celery might work.

Eggplant would be wonderful, and something I've not tried. Thanks PF!
I love my grill baskets.
They would absorb the marinade like mushrooms do, and mushrooms are my favorite in a basket. Just ask Steve as he slaps my hand trying to sneak them out.

We're not crazy about eggplant unless it's in something and chopped tiny. But, that would be a great way to roast an eggplant for babaganoush.

Potato? In slices? Otherwise, I would call it a baked potato.

try laying the slices right on the grill for the grill marks and the char flavor. Wonderful! I cut it in rounds, slather in favorite oily dressing (have a pomegranate one I am loving right now) and grill till tender.

Asparagus! Even grilled lettuce. My daughter will take a head of lettuce, cut it in half and grill it. You can grill almost any veggie. If not right on the grill, then a basket for them. Grilled cukes. She peels then cuts them in half, scoops out the seeds, and grills them. Then places them in an EVOO and Italian red vinegar.

Almost all fruits can go on the grill also. You know how we say, "it is your kitchen, blah, blah blah." Well, it is your grill and your food. Make your own rules as to what you would like to grill.
