Eggplant, tomatoes, sweet corn - they're piled up at farm stands across the country, and it's still high grill season too. The obvious thing to do is to grill or roast some of that vegetable bounty. Roasting vegetables, especially on a grill over fast high heat, is a great way to enjoy the full flavor of fresh vegetables without added fat or a lot of seasoning.
