Tomato-Balsamic Grilled Vegetables

The tomatoes sort of melt and disintegrate as you grill the vegetables, turning them into almost a light sauce that mixes well with the balsamic vinegar flavoring.

1 medium eggplant, peeled, quartered and sliced 1/4-inch thick (or 2 medium Asian type eggplants)
2-3 medium zucchini or summer squashes, sliced 1/8-1/4-inch thick
1 ripe sweet bell pepper, halved, seeded, and sliced cross-wise
2-3 Roma type paste tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup chopped fresh basil for topping

Combine all the vegetables in a large bowl. Drizzle with vinegar and oil and toss to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Grill vegetables in a grill basket over medium heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender and pleasantly charred in places. Serve topped with a generous sprinkle of basil.

Serves 2-4.
