Veggie Skewers

Veggie skewers consisting of zucchini, red onion, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and bell peppers are grilled to perfection. They are coated with a garlic-lemon marinade giving it that perfect bite.  Hello there, summer!

During the hot summer months, skewers of meats and grilled vegetables are some of the easiest ways to enjoy your favorite dishes. This includes our Grilled Mixed Veggies and Chicken or Pork Souvlaki.

Vegetables To Skewers

Not all vegetables are created equal when making them into skewers. They are just better sauteed or roasted, away from the grill. Vegetables that we recommend using for skewers recipes are:

  • Zucchini – can also substitute or also add yellow squash.
  • Onions – Red onions are my favorite, but you can also use yellow or white onions too.
  • Bell Peppers – There are green, red, yellow, and orange bell peppers. Mix them up or just pick your favorite ones.
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Mushroom – White mushrooms or Crimini mushrooms.
  • Eggplant

  3. Skewers & Grill: If you are using wooden skewer sticks be sure to soak them in water if your cooking method is the grill. If you are using a grill pan or oven you can skip the soaking. (Another great alternative is using stainless steel skewers to reduce waste). Remove from the refrigerator and start threading the vegetables.

  4. Heat the grill pan and add oil. Place your skewers to cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Plate and enjoy with rice, tzatziki sauce, chicken or pork souvlaki, and crispy lemon potatoes.

Note: If you are using wooden skewer sticks be sure to soak them in water if your cooking method is the grill. If you are using a grill pan or oven you can skip the soaking. The wooden sticks will burn on an outdoor grill.
