Grilled Vegetable Kabobs with Garlic Herb Butter
Grilling vegetables is a year-round, all weather sport at our house. I believe I could eat these grilled vegetable kabobs daily and never tire of the fresh farm stand flavors, some things just never get old. Especially, when it comes to summer bounty and farm to table flavors. Even better if they're grown in your own back yard.
Helpful Tips for Making Grilled Vegetable Kabobs
- I find it's much easier to thread the vegetables onto a metal skewer. The sharp pointed end makes it easier to push through the raw vegetables. In particular, the corn.
- Should you choose to use wooden skewers, take the time to soak them in water prior to assembling the kabobs grilling to prevent burning.
- These vegetables are basted with a fresh garlic-herb butter, beautifully charred and sprinkled with grated Parmesan just before serving makes for outstanding eats.
- Please note, I often choose the light Land O' Lakes butter with Canola oil. It's a blend with oil making it less likely to overcook. It has the bonus of being lighter and full flavored, too.
