In the Kitchen: Veggie and Fruit Kabobs


This take on veggies kabobs adds a little more flavor and a little kick as well. I wanted them to be more substantial so I added in sweet potato. Dressing your kabobs with a home made sauce helps boost the flavor profile too! If you choose to use the pineapple please make sure you get a whole fresh pineapple. This will make a world of difference in terms of flavor. When choosing a pineapple look for yellow areas around the sides and base of it. You should be able to smell the pineapple a bit. Happy grilling!


 What you will need

1/4 cup of olive oil
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
2 tsp chili paste
3 tbsp mint chopped
1/2 lemon juiced
salt to taste
1 pineapple cut into cubes
2 cups of grape tomatoes
1 yellow onion cut into larger pieces
4 tricolour bell peppers cut into large pieces
1 sweet potato peeled and cut into thin rounds


Instructions

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes, meanwhile chop all veggies and fruit into larger pieces that will be easy to skewer.
  2. Skewer all veggies and fruit alternating the variety.
  3. Make some skewers with just pineapple if desired.
  4. In a small bowl combine lemon juice, olive oil, chili paste, salt, cilantro, and mint. Whisk well.
  5. Brush mixture onto skewers
  6. When your grill has medium heat place all skewers on the grill, making sure none are in the center, where the heat is most hot. Cover and cook until tender and a bit charred. You can use aluminum foil under them if desired. 


Enjoy!
