I love grilling veggies on the BBQ. Sometimes we just throw a bunch of cut veggies in a grilling basket and add a wee bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper but other times we want a bit more, like these BBQ Veggie Kabobs.

4th of July: BBQ Veggie Kabobs



Even when we are grilling burgers or ‘tube steaks’, we always throw a few of these on the BBQ too. And just for good measure, remember to keep the veggies separate from any meat when you are marinating. Don’t forget to use the leftover marinade as a sauce!
