Ingredients

Marinade:

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 1/2 teaspoons honey

2 cloves garlic, minced

Kebabs:

2 red peppers cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

2 green peppers cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

2 yellow peppers cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

4 yellow onions cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

2 large zucchini cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium eggplant cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

Marinade, recipe above

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir ingredients together until smooth.

Kebabs:

  1. Preheat grill or broiler.
  2. Thread vegetables onto wooden or metal skewers. If you use wooden ones, soak them in water for 1 to 2 hours before using to keep them from burning. You can make single vegetable skewers or use an assortment on each skewer.
  3. Lightly brush each skewer with marinade. Broil 4 to 6-inches from heat, 5 minutes per side or until browned or lightly charred and tender. If desired, serve with extra marinade for dipping.
