Choose Your Vegetables

When making vegetable skewers, it’s essential to choose suitable vegetables. You want to select vegetables that are sturdy enough to hold up on the skewer and won’t fall apart during cooking. Some great options include bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash, onions, cherry tomatoes, and eggplant.

Cut The veggies to the Right Size

Once you’ve chosen your vegetables, it’s essential to cut them to the right size. You want them to be uniform in size so they cook evenly. For example, cut bell peppers into 1-inch pieces, zucchini, yellow squash, 1/2-inch slices, and onions into 1-inch chunks.

Cherry tomatoes can be left whole, and mushrooms can be halved or quartered depending on size.

Season, season, season

Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. To add some extra flavor to your vegetable skewers, consider seasoning them before cooking. Let the vegetables sit with the seasoning of choice for about 10 minutes before skewering and cooking. You can use a store-bought seasoning or make your own with a mix of spices.


Skewer Them Up

When it comes time to skewer your vegetables, you can get creative with the order you put them—alternate colors and textures for a visually appealing skewer.
