When Chef McGoey barbecues at home, he likes to serve this sunburst of grilled vegetables with his favourite steak.

  • 1/4 cup olive oil (50 ml)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (30 ml)
  • Pinch each of salt and pepper
  • 1 red pepper seeded and cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 yellow pepper seeded and cut into 4 pieces
  • 12 trimmed spears of asparagus
  • 1 zucchini cut in thick slices
  • 1 large Portobello mushroom cut in thick slices
  • 1 red onion cut in thick slices
  • 60 g of goat’s cheese or blue cheese

In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper until the salt is dissolved. Toss the vegetables in the marinade.

Place the vegetables on a medium-hot barbecue grill and cook, turning once, until grill marks appear. Serve the vegetables with the cheese of choice crumbled over top.
