What's the best way to grill veggies like zucchini and red pepper on the grill, if you don't have aluminum foil or a basket type thing?

Have a lot of veggies and don't want them to fall through!

If you have sliced the vegetables lengthwise, it is easy to oil them, and then place them directly on the grill. Use tongs to turn them.

Thanks! We had already sliced them lengthwise, but ended up doing exactly that and just being careful with them.

How about using skewers?

We grill them straight on as well - I slice them thicker than the openings between the grates so they don't fall through, and with veggies such as asparagus I set them crossways and roll rather than flip them while they cook.

Agree with directly on the grill.
But would also like to add a small hack; cooling/baking rack (if you have one). Works like a charm. Just oil it well with towel/paper towels or cooking spray.
