Recipe

These Grilled Honey Mustard Sweet Potato and Vegetable Kabobs are the perfect meatless option for grilling and are packed with flavor.

I love getting out on the grill during warmer months and vegetable kabobs are one of my favorite things to make. Not only are they healthy, I just love the flavor of grilled vegetables when they are slightly charred, cooked until tender crisp, and ideally covered in a delicious marinade like this honey mustard marinade with rosemary. To pack in the flavor, you want to let the veggies hang out in the marinade for at least 4 hours before it's grilling time. This ensures they are full of that delicious honey mustard flavor.

For the kabobs, you could use almost any combination of veggies, just make sure to choose things that will cook in about the same amount of time. You could also add some tofu, tempeh, seitan, or chicken to add some protein. That's really all it takes. Served with some rice, quinoa, beans, or lentils and you have a healthy and delicious meal.

Directions

  1. Microwave, bake, or steam the sweet potatoes until just tender. In a microwave, you can gently pierce holes in the potato using a fork and then microwave for 5-7 minutes. Cut the veggies into 1 inch chunks. Soak the skewers if needed.
  2. Stir together the mustard, yogurt, honey, garlic, salt, pepper, rosemary, and paprika. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Toss with the veggies and let marinate for at least 4 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, thread the vegetables onto skewers and brush with marinade. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side until vegetables begin to char. Turn and repeat until veggies are tender. Serve with remaining marinade drizzled on top if desired.
