A must-have side kebab to go with your grilled meats. These colorful veggies are packed with lots of flavour and even more delicious when freshly grilled with my zesty garlic marinade.
A well balanced meal should always have a side of vegetables (in my opinion). I LOVE the colourful display of these vegetables on the stick. Grill them with a little char and they are so lip smacking delicious!

*Good To Know*

  • How do I grill the veggies so they cook evenly? It’s in the size of your vegetable cuts. Cut them approximately 1 x 1 inch even size cubes (or leave whole if they already come in that size).
  • Do I need to soak the wooden skewers? I like soaking the skewers in water for at least 2 hours before using them. When the water is absorbed by the wood (or bamboo) it helps to reduce the sticks from burning too quickly while grilling.
  • What to do with left-overs? Oh the possibilities! Vegetable soup, stir fry, cold salad, omelette, quiche, sandwiches …. any dish that calls for vegetables add these left over vegetables for a little extra flavour!

How to prepare and grill vegetables

This is a vegan / vegetarian friendly side dish. The sweetness of the pepper & red onions, the earthy flavour of the mushrooms and the floral notes of the zucchini are so tasty when you grill them with a bit of char. I truly think grilling brings out the best flavour in these veggies. Mixed with the zesty garlic marinade and you’ve got yourself a healthy does of veggies that will make you go “Mmmhh Mmmhh Mmmhh!” (well at least that’s what I did anyway!)

Grilled Marinated Veggie Skewers

Throw everything in a mixing bowl, pour marinade over and combine it all together. No chill time required. Simply skewer and start grilling these babies! Extra onion layers add delicious sweetness. If you’re not a fan of onions, reduce the amount by 1 or 2 onions.

Almost any vegetable combination is possible as long as you use vegetables that cook fast and are not too dense such as potatoes or corn on the cob.

  • In a medium mixing bowl add garlic, rosemary, salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Whisk together until combined. Pour marinade over vegetables and mix with hands (or spatula) to combine.
  • Start by sticking an onion slice to the skewer as the base, then alternate with pepper, onion, mushroom, onion, zucchini and repeat until skewer is full. (Leave a 2 inch gap at the base for easy handling / grilling). Repeat this process until all vegetables are skewered. Save the marinade to brush onto skewers while grilling.
  • Grill on the barbecue on medium high heat for 4 minutes on each side or until some char develops and vegetables have softened a bit.
