Hi Everyone! I hope you are all having a great Saturday! Today's recipe is another vegetarian Dish! By now, you can probably tell I am really enjoying this vegetarian cooking! Everything I have made so far has been really delicious! I haven't missed the meat at all, I will try to keep this recipes coming, I don't really mind eating vegetables, but my husband is kind of picky! Lucky me, he hasn't complained about any of the recipes I have made, so he is enjoying the veggies as much as I am! Anyway, let's go back to the recipe!

Makes 10-12 kebabs
Ingredients:

1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 onion
1 Idaho potato or 3 small potatoes
2 ears of yellow corn
2 medium zucchini
2 small carrots

For the dressing:

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon dry rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon ground thyme (You can replace these last 4 ingredients with 2 teaspoons of Italian Seasoning if you like)
pinch of salt
10-12 wooden Skewers

Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least 20 minutes before using them.

Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Cut the carrots, zucchini, potatoes and corn in thick slices(1½-2in slices.) Cook them in boiling water until "Al Dente". (Until almost cooked, but do NOT overcook.) Drain them and set them aside.
Zucchini and Carrots will cook in about 5-6 minutes.
Potatoes will take about 7-8 minutes
Corn will take 10-12 minutes.

Chop the onion in big chunks.
Remove the stems and veins from the bell peppers. Also chop the Bell peppers in big chunks. Set aside.

To make the dressing: Combine oil, vinegar, mustard, and the dry herbs. Mix well and set aside.

Once the vegetables are cooked. Dress all the vegetables (including onion and bell peppers) with the herbs dressing. Make sure to coat every single piece with the dressing.

Build the kebabs. Alternate the vegetables onto the skewers. Arrange the vegetables any way you want, and keep alternating the vegtables until you are done with all the kebabs.


Bake at 450ºF for 8-10 minutes or until the Onions and Bell Peppers are soft, and the rest of the vegetables are heated through.

Serve with rice, or eat all by themselves! Enjoy!
