Recipes

Kebabs

Sarah West

Ingredients
1 lb. meat (lamb, chicken or beef) cubed
1 lb. (approx) firm tomatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 onion, cut into thick squares
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme or oregano, chopped
~ salt and pepper, to taste
~ paprika (optional), to taste

Steps

  1. Mix together oil, garlic and herbs. Set aside.
  2. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 10 minutes. Heat grill. If using a charcoal grill, place grill about 4 inches from heat source.
  3. Thread vegetables and meat alternately on skewers. Leave a little space between pieces. Brush skewers with oil mixture and season with salt, pepper and optional paprika to taste. Set aside while grill heats up.
  4. Place kebabs on grill when the grill is hot. Brush them with a little more olive oil as they cook. Turn kebabs a few times and cook until they are brown on all sides and meat is tender, about 10 or 15 minutes.
  5. Remove skewers from grill and place on a platter. Cover with a foil tent, let the skewers rest for about 5 minutes then serve.

Note: Looking for a vegetarian/vegan option? Use cubes of tempeh instead of meat.
