Whisk to combine The Original’ Bird’s Nest Sweet Scotch Rub and olive oil in a large bowl.

Add the vegetables to the bowl and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

Add the denser vegetables first, such as the carrots (or potatoes if using). Cook for 3-4 minutes, then add the rest of the vegetables to the grill. Cook the vegetables for 3-5 minutes per. side or until browned and tender.

Place the vegetables on a serving plate. Sprinkle with parsley and garnish with lemon wedges if desired.
