What vegetables are good grilling?

My school had grilled lemons as a side on Friday and I tried it and loved it, what other weird but yummy veggies are out there for grilling? I'm going grocery shopping tomorrow and want to stock up and try it on my own

Eggplant, zucchini, squash, onions (just make sure you cut them into rings), corn, peppers, Asparagus is really good too just make sure you lay them so they don't fall through the cracks lol

For fruit, peaches and pineapple!! YUM!

all those as well as:

portobello mushrooms (especially the "baby" kind)
cherry/grape tomatoes
elephant garlic (mild enough to be on its own)
baby carrots can work too

I made beef kabobs last night with chunks of red onion, green peppers and whole cherry (or bit bigger) tomatoes. They were delicious!!

Fennel bulbs get super sweet and carmelize nicely when grilled. I often use a metal pan (no teflon coating; just an old pie tin, usually) so I can use smaller pieces and therefore cook faster. Some olive oil, coarsely ground pepper and sea salt are all it needs to do its thing.

If you can get them, plantains are also soooo good when grilled. You can put them in an aluminum foil pouch with butter, brown sugar and a bit of cinnnamon for a very yummy dessert! Be sure to use the plantains when they're black-skinned, soft and sweeter.

Tomatoes, green beans if you have something to cook them in, oranges, anything really, yum!
