Fresh marinated veggie kabobs are packed with tons of flavor – perfect as a healthy side dish to any meal! grilled! marinated in fresh spices , these colorful kabobs are best of summer’s bounty and perfect for a casual gathering.

Spring is here and can’t wait for summertime. Being a warm body Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons of the year. We love to hangout in our little backyard and look forward to spending some fun weekends grilling and chilling. Dusting off the grill is the Best. Feeling. Ever. !!!! Kids love anything grilled and love to hang out in the backyard with some music.

These I made on a gas grill last summer for a party. These skewers are easy and fun to make, if you have a grill. But, if you prefer to avoid the heat and don’t have time, you can easily broil these in the oven or on a grill pan on the stovetop.

My marination is very simple and basic, I mix yogurt, Chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, a little bit of chaat masala and salt to taste. Add ginger garlic paste to the mix and mix well. This is my quick go to marination mix. I sometimes add the green chutney to pump up the flavors.
