Ingredients
  

  • 6 bamboo skewers - short and strong
  • 6 even sized cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium zucchini / baby marrow - thinly sliced with a peeler
  • 1 medium carrot - thinly sliced with a peeler
  • 1 medium red onion - sliced into quarters
  • 6 even sized medium button mushrooms - remove stem
  • 6 even sized pieces of bell pepper - between 1/4 to 1/2 a bell pepper
  • coconut oil / butter for frying or basting
  • GiNiT Original / Chilli / Thyme as a finishing spice
  • Optional:
  • minced garlic - basted on skewers

Instructions
 

  • To Assemble:
  • Thread a strip of carrot and zucchini / baby marrow onto a skewer, followed by a cherry tomato wrapped in a layer of red onion, then thread the carrot and zucchini / baby marrow on to complete the circle. Cut off excess carrot and zucchini / baby marrow. Repeat above steps to have 2 tomatoes per skewer on 3 skewers.
  • Thread a layer of red onion onto a skewer, followed by a mushroom through the cap from side to side, then a piece of bell pepper. Repeat above steps to have 2 mushrooms per skewer on 3 skewers.
  • This was our choice, but be creative and use the vegetables you enjoy most - if you can get them to stay on a skewer 🙂
  • To Cook:
  • Heat a griddle pan with coconut oil until hot, but not smoking.  Fry the skewers on each side for about 5 minutes.
  • Alternately, melt the coconut oil and mix in a minced clove of garlic and baste the skewers and braai / bbq over medium coals until cooked.
  • Sprinkle your favourite GiNiT Spice over the top before serving.

Notes

Serving Suggestion:
We served our skewers as part of a mezze platter, with gluten free wraps, hummus, baba ganoush and tapenade.
Note:
Although we love olive oil, it has a lower smoke point than coconut oil.  This is why we tend to cook with coconut oil or butter, and add a dash olive oil for it's flavour, before serving.
