Hello friends and Happy Memorial Day! Today is going to be a pretty uneventful day for me as I have to be at work at 7pm. In the meantime, hubby and I will be spending some time together and preparing some food before I head out to work.

If you don’t eat meat like me, don’t fret about what you can or cannot eat when you visit your family and friends at the annual barbecue get-together. There are plenty of meatless dishes that can be grilled and are absolutely delectable.

Here’s one recipe you will love: Veggie Kabob on the Grill



Ingredients:
Sweet onions, cut into chunks
Mushrooms, cut into chunks
Bell peppers, cut into squares
Zucchini, sliced
Yellow squash, sliced
Sweet corn, cut into pieces
Broccoli, but into pieces
Garlic cloves, peeled
Baby bok choy, optional
Tofu, drained and cubed, optional

Directions:

For the marinade:
¾ olive oil
1tsp red wine vinegar
3tbs fresh squeezed lemon juice
1tbs soy sauce (I prefer Braggs Liquid Aminos)
1tbs honey (I prefer agave honey)
2tsp sea salt
1tsp ground pepper
1tsp dried parsley
2tsp dried oregano
3 garlic cloves, minced

1.      Whisk the marinade together.

2.      Place the veggies in a large bowl and pour the marinade over the top.

3.      Stir well, cover, and put in the fridge. (Let it marinate for at least one hour).

4.      Skewer the veggies onto bamboo sticks and grill over medium heat for about 20 minutes or until tender.

5.      ENJOY! Have fun veggie-ing out!

 
What are you doing for Memorial Day?
