Can I use meat marinade to cook vegetables?

Don't reuse marinade if it's already been used. Use a fresh batch but, yes you can use it. If you like the flavor, go for it!
Not if you've marinated raw meat in it, but if you just want to use previously unused marinade for cooking vegetables, then yes.
You can use the meat marinade with your vegies if you cook the marinade first. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. That will kill any bacteria from the meat. Then you can add it to your vegetables. But I have another suggestion: Pour the cooked marinade on rice, pasta or couscous instead. Don't forget though, you have to cook it first. Also do not use the uncooked marinade to baste your cooking meat for the same reason. Bacteria from the raw meat. Cook it first and then use it as a basting sauce. Good work asking before doing.
