  1. Prepare charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over high heat, or preheat indoor electric grill. Oil the grill rack.
  2. Put bell peppers, onion rounds, and tomatoes in a bowl and coat them with oil.
  3. Grill peppers directly over high heat, turning to char and blister them on all sides, 5-7 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a paper bag, close the bag, and let cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, grill onion rounds, turning once, until grill marked and partly tender, 2-3 mins per side. Transfer to a cutting board.
  6. Grill tomatoes, turning often, until grill marked, 3-4 minutes. Dont overcook. Transfer to a cutting board.

  8. Scatter basil leaves on top of the vegetables.
