Ingredients

For the Marinade: -

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper

Vegetables: -

  • 200 g button mushrooms
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper cut into squares
  • 1 green pepper cut into squares
  • 1 red onion cut into squares
  • 1 courgette (zucchini), cut into 1/4-inch slices

Instructions

  • If you’re using wooden skewers (6 are needed) soak them in warm water to prevent them from burning.
  • Place the marinade ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Season to taste with the salt and pepper.
  • Then add all the vegetables to the marinade and mix well together. Allow to sit for 15 minutes.
  • Thread the mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, peppers, onion and courgette slices onto 6 skewers.
  • Place a sheet of aluminium foil on a grill pan*, then place the skewers on a rack in your grill pan and place the pan under a hot grill about ¾ of the way from the top.
  • Turn the skewers at least every 4-5 minutes whilst grilling to ensure each side gets the same amount of cooking. Grill for 15 - 20 minutes.

Notes

*You could also use a George Foreman grill if you don’t have a grill.
