BBQ Time - Veggie Kebabs

Cut a selection of your favourite veggies and other vegetarian ingredients into bite-size chunks (examples below). Soak some bamboo skewers - and have fun assembling the most colourful, delicious and, of course, healthy kebabs. This is only limited by your imagination.

red, green, yellow peppers
onions, quartered and separated into layers
boiled potatoes
parboiled carrots, cut whole carrots into approx. 3cm long chunks and parboil in salted water
cherry tomatoes, whole
freshly ground black pepper
salt, optional - I personally don't use salt with these veggies to let their natural sweetness come out.

Brush or drizzle with some garlic flavoured, chilli flavoured or plain extra virgin olive oil.

To make sure this dish retains it's healthy qualities, turn frequently to prevent the veggies from blackening. They will still have a bite and can be enjoyed hot or cold.
