Use these vegetable skewer combos as a main or as a side. Most of your time will be spent in the preparation of threading the vegetables. So try to get some help to cut down this time and you can have a chat in the process! If you have any left-overs just thread the remaining combinations left. We have barbecued the skewers and it can also be grilled.
