There's no better way to get all the joys of summer in one place, a single skewer. This isn't the most unique recipe but in the summer I can't eat enough of grilled vegetables on a skewer. Reminder: if you're using wooden skewers soak them a few minutes before loading. This will ensure they don't catch on fire during cooking. Enjoy!
What you need:
2 cups mushrooms
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 green bell pepper, cut into chunks
2 candy onions, cut into chunks
1 zucchini, sliced into thick rounds
1 yellow squash, sliced into thick rounds
Basil leaves - green & purple
FOR THE MARINADE
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, pressed
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 Tblsp oregano
1/2 Tblsp basil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, oregano and basil; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Thread vegetables and basil leaves onto skewers. Brush olive oil mixture onto the skewers and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
Place skewers onto hot grill, turning every few minutes for about 8-10 minutes. Coat vegetables with excess marinade as you turn the skewers. (Alternatively you can cook the skewers on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes)
