Barbecued vegetable kebabs make a delicious main course or side dish and are so easy to prepare. If you decide to use wooden skewers instead of metal ones make sure you soak the skewers in water beforehand so they don’t burn. You can use a whole range of vegetables but make sure they’ll hold together on the skewer and not turn mushy when grilled. Here is a selection of vegetables to try.
Whole cherry tomatoes
Red yellow and orange peppers (capsicums) cut into chunks
Red onion cut into chunks
Sweet potato, par-boiled and cubed
Butternut squash, par-boiled and cubed
Whole chestnut mushrooms
Also add some cubed, marinated tofu for a protein boost.
Thread the vegetables and tofu onto metal or pre-soaked wooden skewars and brush with balsamic vinaigrette. Place on the barbecue and cook for around 5 minutes turning often.
