I’m not kidding – when the craving hits, we bundle up, throw on the snow boots and venture outdoors to fire up the grill! Who knew vegan grilling could be so delicious? Just wait til you try my Grilled Veggie Skewers! These babies are on repeat around here for good reason. They are easy to make, super flavorful, and totally versatile.
Let’s talk about the secret behind these mouthwatering skewers – the marinade! It’s like a symphony of flavors where balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, soy sauce (or tamari), and a blend of seasonings dance together to create a taste sensation. And here’s the kicker – the marinade isn’t just a quick dip; it’s a transformative experience that marries the ingredients into a harmonious union. Each bite will be bursting with flavor after just 30 minutes of marinating (but let’s be honest – the longer you marinate, the better!).
It’s like a rainbow on your plate, vibrant colors and flavors that celebrate the essence of summer (or if you’re like us and channel summer vibes in the middle of January). These skewers pack a colorful array of bell peppers, squash, zucchini, mushrooms, and even juicy pineapple – all threaded onto skewers with marinated tofu, ready to be sizzlingly grilled to perfection.
Now, the real magic happens on the grill. As these skewers hit the heat, the marinade caramelizes, creating a tantalizing glaze that enhances the natural sweetness of the veggies and tofu. The sizzle, the aroma (beware of neighbors jumping the fence to find out what smells so good!), the anticipation – it’s a sensory experience that adds to the delight. After just 10 minutes of grilling, the skewers emerge – their edges kissed by golden goodness.
Grilled Veggie Skewers can be incredibly versatile as well. This grilled goodness can be served over a bed of rice, toss with pasta and fresh herbs, or tossed into a salad. The possibilities are endless!
So, are you ready to turn up the heat and embark on this sensational, plant-powered culinary journey? Whether you’re in a land of perpetual summer, savoring the last bits of the season, or looking forward to winter grilling, it’s time to ignite the barbie and let those skewers sizzle!
Pairs PERFECTLY with my strawberry rosé margaritas!! I promise 🙂 and look out for my upcoming recipe this week because it is a killer addition to these Grilled Veggie Skewers!
