Time for summer BBQ grilling!! Dinner outdoors is wonderful and delicious. Try one of these marinades to liven up your vegetable kabobs!
1 can of crushed pineapple
4 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses
1/8 teaspoon of red-pepper flakes (or to taste – hot, hot, hot!)
Mix all ingredients together in a bag and refrigerate for approximately 2 to 4 hours.
Another good marinade for grilling or oven is:
Ingredients for Marinade:
1/3 cup of wine vinegar
2/3 cup of olive oil
1/3 cup of lemon juice
2 teaspoons of thyme
1 teaspoon of black pepper
3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon salt
3 cloves of crushed garlic
Mix ingredients in a large ziplock bag or bowl with a lid and refrigerate for about 2 hours. Add vegetables for another 2 hours and place on skewers. Drizzle leftover marinade over veggies for grilling.
I enjoy a mixture of veggies on my Kabobs: multi-colored peppers, purple onions, Cipollini onions, mushrooms, fingerling potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, and tomatoes.
