Once again, the 4th of July is upon us! No better way to symbolically kick-off the summer than a few fireworks, right? Well before the bombs burst in the air, but shortly after the annual Peachtree Road Race, let’s get some kabobs stacked and on the grill!
This very well may be one of the easiest, quickest, healthiest, and super delicious ‘no fuss’ way to celebrate with your tastebuds as well as your eyes! Super simple because all you need is fresh veggies (or fruit), Abstract Spice, sticks, and a fire! Now, I do generally like to add a drizzle of flavored olive oil once the kabobs are done for an extra layer of flavor!
5 KABOB KICK-OF TIPS
If you’ve ever had an apprehension to preparing kabobs or felt intimidated in any way, I am here with 5 Kabob Kick-Off super simple tips to adhere to when skewing these babies for the barbie:
FRUIT: Pineapple, Nectarines, Watermelon, and other melon are seasonal and perfect for the grill. Because of their firmer flesh they can withstand direct heat better than most other fruit, maintaining and even intensifying their flavor!**
Pretty easy, huh? Feel free to throw in marinated tofu or tempeh as well! The veggies/fruit you select to go on your skewers is completely up to you. This also goes for the order in which you stack them. Personally I always shoot for the 'rainbow' in trying to find the brightest most vibrant plants, which coincidentally are so easy to find in the summer!
Remember, SHARING is caring!
