Grilled Veggie Platter with Simple Maple Mustard Vinaigrette


  • 3 Belgian endive halved
  • 2 red bell peppers, quartered
  • 2 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into 1/2″ slices
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into 1/2″ slices
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups fresh arugula or baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (optional)



  1. If grilling outside, bring your grill to 375-400° Fahrenheit. If using an indoor grill pan, use the stovetop burner to bring the pan to medium-high heat when ready to grill.
  2. Cut endive heads in half.
  3. Cut peppers, mushrooms, and eggplant into 1/2″ slices.
  4. Remove stem from mushrooms and using a spoon, remove gills from mushrooms.


  1. Combine all dressing ingredients – olive oil, vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, salt, pepper, and garlic if desired – into a small mason jar or container with a sealed lid. Shake until ingredients are well mixed. . Set aside.
  2. Brush the veggies with olive oil and season lightly with salt and black pepper. Place on the preheated grill surface and cook for 10-15 minutes, flipping about halfway through. The Belgian endive, portobello, and bell pepper may be done slightly earlier than the eggplant and sweet potato.
  3. Arrange the arugula or baby spinach onto a large platter.
  4. Remove the veggies from the grill and place on top of the bed of greens.
  5. Serve warm with dressing.
