Broiling veggies is one way to quickly get a delicious side dish onto the table. They blacken a bit giving them such great flavor. They’re even better if you marinate them a bit first though.

Today’s vegetable marinade is really simple. It’s olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper. That’s it.

The trick for getting the vegetables evenly coated in marinade, and to giving them a good soak, is to marinate them before putting them on skewers. This way more surface area of the vegetables is in contact with the bottom of the baking dish and thus with the pool of marinade. Get them onto skewers after they marinate and then broil about 6 inches from the heat source just until they start to blacken.
