Ever wonder what to make when hosting family and family? There are so many different food choices and preferences. That’s why grilled vegetables on skewers are such a good go to recipe.

Who doesn’t love crisp veggies hot off the grill!?

What goes on the skewers

In the past, I used to marinate vegetables in a sauce which required a little extra planning ahead of time. Now that I’ve found a kicking grilled vegetables sauce, I no longer marinate veggies. I simply chop up the vegetables and place them on skewers.

I use metal skewers, so that I can use them multiple times. Wooden skewers work great too.

Bell Peppers
These grill up marvelously. The red and yellow bell peppers add a lot of color to your kebabs.

Zucchinis
Awww grilled zucchinis remind me of summertime. You can use these up anytime though.

Onions
Chargrilled onions are definitely a favorite over here. Their slightly burnt edges pair well with the other vegetables.

Pineapple
This is pure sweet goodness right off the grill. I love eating these almost as a dessert. For my guests who don’t love grilled pineapple, I always enjoy the extras.

I’ve tested and grilled a lot of vegetables. The more challenging ones to place on the skewers are potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes. The potatoes and carrots take quite a while to cook. Whereas the cherry tomatoes cook quickly and can burst if you’re not watching closely.

How to make your grilled vegetable on skewers

You can prepare and chop vegetables the night before. I like to use a variety of vegetables and rotate between the vibrant – reds, yellows, and greens.

I recommend placing sturdier vegetables on the ends of the skewers such as onions. Note it is almost inevitable that a few pieces will fall off. That’s ok.

Try to chop all your vegetables the same size, check out the photos to see how big to cut your veggies. Personally, I cut my bell peppers into chunks. You can slice zucchinis into rounds or semicircles.

What sauce and sides to serve

The fresh grilled vegetables on skewers are definitely the star of this meal. You’ll want to check out our chimichurri sauce and healthy white rice. The sauce enhances the smoky chargrilled vegetables while the rice soaks up all the flavors. Our healthy white rice recipe has more flavor than typical white rice and is easy to make in a rice cooker or stove pot.

Grilled vegetables on skewers remind me of summertime and can be enjoyed anytime of the year. If you don’t have a grill, you can place the vegetable skewers in the oven. You’ll just have to watch the cooking time.
