Kabobs

by Meghann on May 29, 2011

OK, so this wasn’t exactly an extravagant meal, but kabobs are still pretty dang special for a Sunday ngiht.

I was perusing the Whole Foods Website -looking for dinner ideas- when I came across a photo of kabobs that caught my attention. Kabobs are one of those delicious concoctions that are easy to make (and great for pleasing a crowd!), but involve some prep work (turning an easy dish into a complicated one).

I prepped large chunks of eggplant, pineapple, green pepper, onion, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and steak for tonight’s kabobs.

Then one-by-one added each piece to bamboo skewers. (with Derek’s help πŸ˜‰ )

The skewers went under the broiler for 3-4 minutes per side (I like my meat medium-rare).

The results were simple and delicious.

Served on a bed of yellow rice.

We had seasoned the steak with a fancy salt mix, but the rest of the vegetables were simply seasoned with salt and pepper. The simple seasoning was all the vegetables really needed, each flavor stood out perfectly on it’s own.

For dessert I had a serving of ice cream.

Have a great night!

I love kabobs! I’ve been wanting to grill some up for dinner for a while. Its an awesome thing to have as the only vegetarian in the bunch. Just replace meat chunks with tofu on a few of the sticks and you’re good to go!

Haha, it always amuses me how they’re called kabobs in America! We call them kebabs.

Love the ingredients you put on yours! I love making satay ones.

Kabobs are always a good idea. And I’ve never put eggplant on them. I’ll have to try that.

I feel like kabobs are a perfect meal for summer – and on Memorial Day weekend, nonetheless! πŸ™‚

I just saw some good looking kabobs in the grocery store and almost bought them before realizing how easy (and cheap) it is to do myself. I might be grilling some up tomorrow if I get inspired to chop all the ingredients. Yours look good!

Kabobs are my FAVORITE BBQ food. Hands down, all-time favorite right therre! I love how you added pineapple onto the skewers. Grilled pineapple is amazing!

Mmmm…ice cream is extravagant though. Was the eggplant done enough with that short amount of time under the broiler? I wouldn’t think it would cook enough.

I enjoy my eggplant tough, so I’m not the best person to judge, but Derek ate all his and didn’t have one complaint. πŸ™‚

20 Hilary May 30, 2011 at 7:21 pm

Good to know! Personally, I like to grill/roast the heck out of it so it’s nice and tender.

HAH I love that you use the Whole Foods website. I do the same when I’m in a rut for preparing a healthy meal.

Kebabs are one of my favorite things, especially with lambbbb πŸ™‚

I love kabobs — and I agree that they are a pretty fancy meal! And I think any meal that ends with ice cream is a very good meal indeed.
