Vegetable Skewers

I am so very fond of cooking, that I was thrilled to find a cooking game on facebook - Chefville!! I got so addicted to that, and in a few minutes I had crossed a few levels and was awarded with this recipe of veg skewers with tomatoes,mushrooms and zucchini. Well, I have not tried it yet, but it's created by a chef at Zynga, so I'm sure it'll taste good. SO here I am, sharing my prize on FB with all of you : ) Enjoy!


1 pounds (450 g) wild mushrooms

2 medium-sized heirloom tomatoes
1 large zucchini
1 large onion
1 large bell peppers
1 medium-sized squash
1/2 cup (120 milliliters) balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup (170 grams) honey or agave
1/2 small bunch Fresh Basil
10 bamboo skewers

  • Soak the skewers for 45 minutes in water. This will prevent them from burning when grilled.
  • Cut vegetables into uniform bite sizes pieces and line them up on the skewers. Arrange vegetables to keep like colors separate. Think rainbows! Keep in mind this can be eaten by hand and doesn’t need a knife and fork.
  • To make the veggie glaze, combine the balsamic vinegar and honey (or agave) and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Let the glaze cool down to room temperature. The glaze will become thicker as it cools down but should still be pourable like honey.
  • While the glaze is still warm, tear up the basil to release its flavor and add it to the glaze.
  • Grill the kebabs on a grill pre-heated to 400-450°F (205 - 230°C). The goal is to get some grilled flavor and color on a couple sides. This should take under a minute on each side
  • Once the kebabs look good, plate them and spoon the veggie glaze over the top of the skewer. The veggie glaze will run down and coat the rest of the kebab naturally. Make sure you get plenty of that great basil on there from the glaze.Season with salt and pepper as required and serve hot.
