Instructions
 

  • Prepare the vegetables:
    Wash and cut the zucchini, bell peppers, onion, and mushroom into 2.5cm (1 inch) chunks.
  • Prepare the marinades:
    In one bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, parsley, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper for the citrus-herb marinade.

    In another bowl, whisk together the yoghurt, tahini, lemon juice, water, garlic, salt, cumin, and black pepper for the tahini-yogurt dressing.
  • Marinate the vegetables:
    Divide the vegetables evenly between two large resealable bags.
    Pour half of the citrus-herb marinade into one bag and half of the tahini-yoghurt dressing into the other bag.

    Toss the vegetables to coat them evenly.
    Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  • Preheat the grill:
    Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  • Assemble the skewers:
    Thread the marinated vegetables onto skewers, alternating between colours and types of vegetables.
  • Grill the skewers:
    Grill the skewers for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred.
  • Serve and enjoy:
    Serve the grilled vegetable skewers with a drizzle of the remaining marinades or dressings.
    Enjoy the symphony of flavours!

Notes

Tips:
  • Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.
  • If you don't have a grill, you can roast the skewers in a preheated oven at 205°C (400°F) for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • Feel free to experiment with different vegetables and marinades to create your own unique skewers.
