Ingredients

Ingredients

3 large green peppers, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
3 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
24 cherry tomatoes
1 medium eggplant, cut into cubes
24 whole mushrooms
Nonstick cooking spray
1/4 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon oregano
 

Directions

Directions

  1. If using bamboo skewers, soak skewers (pointed side up) in a glass of water for 2 minutes. (This will keep them from breaking or catching fire when they are over the hot coals.)
  2. Put green pepper, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, and mushrooms into bowl. Lightly spray vegetables with nonstick cook spray while mixing with a spoon.
  3. Sprinkle basil and oregano over vegetables. Mix.
  4. Place vegetables onto skewers, alternating vegetables as you go.
  5. Grill over hot coals or broil for 3-5 minutes. Serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
