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.
Ooooh.... how could I have skipped asparagus. That's one of the best grilled veggies. Trim the woody ends, toss in olive oil, season with finely minced garlic and kosher salt.... maybe the best veggie that there is.

I grilled asparagus like that for a get together at the house of a friend of my brother (it even worked well on a low end gas grill that I was unfamiliar with). These folks are sort of foodies (but more kitchen cooks rather than grillers), and the grilled asparagus was huge hit with them. I think I pointed them toward a whole new world of food preparation.

Just about anything that will fit into a grilling basket is fair game. I use Mojo marinade or Italian dressing for flavor and like my veggies cooked over a very HOT grill so the veggies come out just slightly scorched. Corn (not on the cob) is especially good cooked this way.

My favorites? Onions, Peppers, 'shrooms, Chinese eggplant, corn, tomatoes

I like to do asparagus as rafts. I have grilled romaine lettuce (smells like pot), eggplant (it doesn't smell like pot) mushrooms, squash (different types) and other stuff.

Meat is still the best thing on the grill, but I can do veggie stuff every now and then.

We usually do meat and veggies both. That way, the entire meal is done on the grill so we don't have to heat up the kitchen or dirty any pans. I usually serve the veggies over rice or in a salad. Any leftover grilled veggies are great in a pasta salad for the next day.

Romaine hearts are great on the grill. We grill some salmon or tuna as well and serve them on the romaine with bleu cheese dressing for DH and Italian dressing for me.

Well, you gotta admit it's a good word.

I agree about the meat. I'm just trying to find more ways to eat vegis.

Babaganoush is a fun word, sounds like someone's grandma.

Wow, were they ever good with our grilled Tri Tip roast.

I'll defiantly be adding eggplant to my favorite grilled veggies list.
