Grilled Caprese Foil Packets filled with tomatoes, red peppers, zucchini, and artichoke hearts and then topped with fresh mozzarella, basil, and balsamic vinegar make the most delicious vegetarian main dish or side.

If it includes fresh mozzarella I am pretty much going to say yes every time. I just can't get enough of this creamy, soft cheese and don't even get me started on burrata. Whenever I see it on display at the grocery store with fresh summer tomatoes and basil, I immediately start thinking about how I can incorporate it into dinner. So last week when I was already planning on grilling some veggie packs for dinner, it only seems natural to turn them into Caprese veggie packets with my favorite cheese, fresh basil, and plenty of balsamic vinegar.

Instructions

(Hide Photos)
1

Preheat the grill (or oven to 375). Prepare one large sheet of aluminum foil, about 12 X 18, for each serving. Spray with cooking spray.

2

Toss together all of the vegetables with the olive oil, balsamic, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Divide evenly among the foil packets. Fold up the sides and fold over to create a closed pouch for the vegetables to cook in.

3

Grill for 12-15 minutes, turning the packets once during cooking. To cook in the oven, cook for 18-20 minutes. To cook in oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cook for 15-20 minutes until vegetables are tender.

4

Carefully open and top with fresh mozzarella, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
