If you have tried a grilled beef and vegetable kabob, a chicken shish kabob with vegetable pieces or another type of kabob, you might fancy combining vegetables with fruit instead of meat the next time you make them. Fruit and vegetables go together nicely and you will know this if you are a fan of salad recipes, since fruit and vegetables are often combined in salads. This vegetable kabob recipe combines mushrooms, bell peppers, squash, onions, and zucchini with kiwi, apple, and pineapple for a juicy flavor. The marinade is made with garlic, coriander, turmeric and lemon juice and you can leave it on for up to twenty four hours.

Keep the marinade when you take out the kabobs, because you can baste them as they cook, adding more delicious flavor. This vegetable kabob marinade has an exotic flavor and the finished kabobs would be great with buttered couscous as an entree. This is a nice dish to serve to vegetarians because it is satisfying and interesting enough to be great vegetarian fare, rather than just a plate of veggies. A lot of meat-eaters serve vegetarians meat dishes with the meat omitted, which does not make an interesting dish for anyone who does not eat meat. This kabob recipe however is very flavorful.

The lemon juice adds a nice sharp taste to the marinade and it also stops the apple chunks from going brown. You can either thread some of the kabob skewers with veggies and others with fruit, or you can mix and match them. The marinade has a savory flavor, which goes with the fruit just as well as it goes with the vegetables.

There are plenty of recipes in which fruit and vegetables go hand in hand, and this is one of them. If you are not convinced about how well these ingredients will complement one another, simply prepare this recipe and you will soon find out how nice they are. The vegetables used to make this are mushrooms, bell peppers, yellow squash, onions and zucchini, while the fruits are kiwi, apple and pineapple.

As well as the vegetables and fruit, you will need to put the marinade together, and that is a mixture of garlic, coriander, lemon, turmeric, black pepper, and salt, combined with olive oil. This flavorful marinade soaks into the vegetables and fruit, adding a really special flavor to them. Give the kabobs several hours in the marinade to allow them to soak up the amazing flavors. Because of this, you might wish to prepare these in the morning, so they can be soaking up the marinade throughout the day.

When you are ready to cook them, just pop them on a nice hot barbeque and let the dry heat cook them which the smoke adds its lovely aromatic flavor. Brush extra marinade on them while they are cooking (do not forget to save some for this purpose!) to lock in the juices and also to add to the flavor. These kabobs will really wow your palate, especially the sweetness from the fruit, and you will certainly want to make them more than once.
