Vegan Kabobs

These Vegan Kabobs are low calorie and high in nutrition. And they come with a wonderful homemade vegan marinade.

I love to make these for backyard barbecues, but I also find myself craving them when there’s snow on the ground. And that’s why I made sure you can make them inside as well.

Ingredients for Vegan Kabobs

I always make my own marinades. It’s the only way I can be 100% sure that the recipe is all-natural and vegan. But if you have a favorite vegan marinade you want to use instead, by all means please do so (and share it below in the comments so all of us can try it!)

How to Make Vegan Kabobs

I prefer to use medal skewers. They are reusable (so cheaper and better for the environment) plus they won’t catch on fire like the wooden ones do on the grill!

If you only have, or prefer to use wooden skewers that’s ok too. Just make sure to soak them in water for a full hour before you add any veggies to them. This will help stop them from lighting on fire on the grill.

How to Make Veggie Kabobs:

  1. In a large bowl combine all of the marinade ingredients and set aside.
  2. Cut the bell peppers, onion and zucchini into bite sized chunks.
  3. Halve the mushrooms.
  4. Slice the ears of corn into small chunks (about 4-5 kernels deep- see photo).
  5. As you’re slicing them, add the vegetables to the marinade. And then toss when slicing is completed, reserving the marinade for basting.
  6. Thread 1-2 each of the veggies onto the skewers alternating so they are well dispersed (see photo).
  7. Grill kebabs over medium heat (in a grill pan on the stovetop, or on a BBQ) for 12-15 minutes, turning often and basting each time with leftover marinade, until all sides of the vegetables are brown and tender.
  8. Serve hot.

These vegan kabobs are easy and fast! And each serving is 2 skewers, but they are so healthy you could could have 2 servings (4 skewers) and still be under 500 calories!
I prefer to use metal skewers as they are reusable and safer. But if prefer to use wooden that is ok too. Just make sure to soak them in water for an hour before starting the recipe. Otherwise they will catch on fire.
Special Tip: You could add cubes of tofu to this recipe as well, I recommend extra firm. And be sure to add them to the marinade to soak up all the yummy flavors!
