Depending on the season, feel free to try different vegetables and herbs with these kebabs. For more of a fall flavor, switch out the rosemary and thyme and add fresh sage instead. Lavender or fresh dill also are great flavors to try with vegetable kebabs.

  • Zucchini, 1 medium, sliced into circles
  • Red bell pepper, cooked, ½ pepper(s), cut into chunks
  • Yellow bell pepper, ½ medium, cut into chunks
  • Cherry tomatoes, 1 dry pint(s)
  • Crimini mushrooms, 10 mushroom(s), halved or quartered
  • Red onion, 1 medium, cut into chunks
  • Garlic, 4 clove(s), minced
  • Rosemary, fresh, 1 tbsp(s), minced
  • Thyme, fresh, 1 tbsp(s), minced
  • Extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp(s)
  • Kosher salt, ½ tsp(s)
  • Black pepper, ¼ tsp(s), ground

Method

Soak 6 wood skewers in water for at least 30 minutes while you wash and prepare the vegetables.

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat, or use a grill pan that can accommodate the full length of the skewers.

Place all vegetables in a large bowl. Add the garlic, fresh herbs, oil, salt and pepper. Toss until evenly coated.

Skewer the vegetables and place on the grill (or grill pan). Turn every 2 minutes until fully cooked, totaling about 5-8 minutes. You can also partially cook the skewers on the grill, giving them great grill marks and flavor, and finish them later in a high-temperature oven.

Serve with your favorite lean protein or whole-grain entree.
