Italian Vegetable Kebabs

Add your favourite in-season vegetables to this simple kebab recipe.

In-season vegetables have a wonderful flavour when grilled. For this recipe, I chose an Italian theme, but you can switch things up in accordance to your menu. To get a Mexican kebab, swap the rosemary for cilantro, the lemon for lime, the balsamic with a teaspoon (5 mL) of chi­potle pepper sauce, and add a pinch of cumin.

  3. To skewer: Begin with a mushroom, then alternate threading the other vegetables onto all eight skewers; finish with a mushroom for each. Rub some oil onto the grill with a paper towel. Grill for five minutes, flip and cook another five.
