Yields

9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mixed color bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup zucchini, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup mushrooms, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 9 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Thread the bell peppers, onions, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms onto the bamboo skewers, leaving a small space between each piece.

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper.

Brush the mixture evenly onto both sides of the vegetables on the skewers. Place the skewers onto the grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and lightly charred.

Serve hot and enjoy your delicious Grilled Vegetable Skewers!

Notes

You can customize the color palette of your skewers by using different bell pepper colors. For a more intense flavor, let the vegetables marinate in the olive oil mixture for at least 30 minutes before grilling.

Make sure to soak the bamboo skewers long enough to prevent them from catching fire on the grill.

If using wooden skewers, you can also brush them with olive oil before grilling to prevent burning. To make this recipe more substantial, serve with a side of quinoa, brown rice, or grilled pita bread.

You can also add other vegetables like cherry peppers, onions, or mushrooms to the skewers for added variety.

Consider making a double batch of the olive oil mixture to use as a salad dressing later.
