Grilled Vegetable Kebabs

Grilled Vegetable Kebabs and Homemade Croutons - A delicious meal of zucchini, bell peppers, mushrooms and other vegetables skewered and grilled to perfection on the barbecue grill.

Ingredients - Serves 4:

For the Kebabs
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 3 zucchini
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 12 oz halved mushrooms
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
For the Croutons
  • 4 slices bread
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Herbs and spices to taste
Preparation:

How to Make Croutons: Preheat the grill to 300 degrees F. Mix your favorite herbs and spices into the olive oil. Brush the flavored oil on to both sides of the bread. Place the bread slices on heavy duty foil on the top rack of the grill and grill until they are crisp and dry. This should take about 45 minutes. Let them cool completely. These croutons will freeze for up to 6 months so you can make extra if you like. and will have a wonderful flavor. Also excellent to do in a smoker grill.

How to Make Vegetable Kebabs: Whisk the vinegar and oil and set aside. Cut each bell pepper into 12 inch wide pieces. Cut the zucchini into 12 half inch slices. Cut the onion into 12 pieces. Thread the vegetables, alternately, on to 4 large skewers. Marinate the kabobs in the oil and vinegar mixture for 15 minutes. Grill them over medium coals for 12 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and slightly browned, turning them once. Serve hot.
