To do this, cut the respective vegetables into slices, grill briefly and then cover as desired or place the whole sandwich directly on the grillage. To give the sandwich a little more hold, you can also stabilize it with wooden skewers.

Pointed peppers are easy to fill due to their curved shape. Simply cut the pepper in half and remove stem and seeds. Then fill to taste with tuna, hummus, sausage, avocado or feta cheese, for example. Afterward, place the pepper’s second half on top of the other and charbroil for about ten minutes.
