BBQ Grilled Sweet Potato and Veggie Kabobs

Monday, September 18, 2017

When Adam said he invited all of my runner friends to a birthday BBQ on the beach, I knew we had to have some healthier options. Since we already planned for chicken sausage hot dogs and burgers, I thought that adding veggie skewers to the mix would be perfect!  Plus adding anything to a stick makes them super fun, easy to eat on the beach, and easier to manage on the grill!  Needless to say, they were a hit, even with my friend who hates veggies had a skewer, lol.  Here's what you'll need:

Sweet potatoes
Red Onion
Bell peppers (the more color options the better!)
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt (we used pink himalayan salt, but any salt will do!)
Freshly ground black pepper
Smoked paprika
Garlic powder

Clean the sweet potatoes and pierce with a fork a few times. Microwave until just knife-tender. (Try not to make them too soft or they’ll fall apart.) Set aside and let cool while you chop the other veggies. Chop remaining vegetables into bite-size cubes. Thread sweet potatoes and vegetables onto skewers. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. In a small bowl, combine a spoonful each of smoked paprika, garlic powder, and oregano. Sprinkle over each side of the skewers. Add to your grill until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred.

I ordered everything from Milk & Eggs for less than $15, which served about 2-3 kabobs for 15 people.  Use code MELLIECAY to get $15 off of your order of $35 or more!
