Preheat the grill.Preheat the grill on medium-high, approximately 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prep the veggies.Drizzle 1 tablespoon of avocado oil evenly over the zucchini and corn. Season the zucchini with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Season the corn with salt and pepper. On a grill pan, toss the tomatoes with ½ tablespoon of avocado oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Get to grilling.Place corn cobs and grill pan with tomatoes on the hot grill. Cook tomatoes, stirring occasionally, until charred, about 3-5 minutes.

When tomatoes are done, grill zucchini for 2-3 minutes on each side, until just tender and grill marks are present.
