Hearts of Palm & Vegetable Kebabs

This was quite the experiment bringing together recipes from Eating Well magazine, Good Housekeeping, and the Daily Meal.


I was really excited to give it a go, because doing kebabs means easily making meat eaters happy. I did hearts of palm, and my husband did shrimp.


Note about hearts of palm... don't put them on skewers. Add them whole. I won't make this mistake again.



Serves: 2-3 | Time: ~20 min


Ingredients


Sauce

1/2 cup fresh parsley

1/3 cup chopped scallions

1/3 cup crumbled feta

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

1/3 cup canola oil


Kebabs

1 #zucchini, cut into 1 inch chunks

1/2 cup cherry #tomatoes

8 oz cremini or button #mushrooms, halved if large

1 can #HeartsOfPalm

If you're with a shrimp eater, use a half can and a half pound of shrimp.


Instructions

If using bamboo skewers, be sure to soak for 10 minutes in water. Otherwise, they will catch fire. Warm up your grill before starting the rest of the steps.


Prepare the sauce by mixing all ingredients together.


The skewers will have to be divided since the various ingredients cook for different lengths of time. One set of skewers should have mushrooms on it. The second set should have the zucchini and cherry tomatoes.


This first go round I put the hearts of palm on the skewers. Don't do this. They're much too fragile. Put them on the grill whole.


Brush each skewer and the hearts of palm with an equal amount of sauce.


You can add all of the skewers at the same time. The mushrooms might just take a bit longer. They'll need 3-5 minutes on each side. The zucchini, tomatoes, and hearts of palm will take 3-4 minutes.


If you're making shrimp for your meat eaters, definitely keep them on their own skewer and keep an eye on them. They only need about 2 minutes per side. Add them after you flip the other skewers for the first time.


Once everything is cooked through, remove them from the grill and divide the skewers accordingly. Enjoy!
