Veggie Kabobs or Oven Roasted Sweet Veggies

Veggie Kabobs, or Oven Roasted Sweet Veggies
"Use this sweet pineapple juice marinade with mushrooms, green & red peppers, chunks of onions, fresh pineapple chunks, baby sliced zucchini rounds, and cherry tomatoes, water chestnuts, 1/2 - 1 inch rounds of corn on the cob, etc,
It's great for grilled veggie kabobs."
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 garlic cloves crushed
1 Tbsp chopped ginger
Warm oils in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in pineapple juice, brown sugar, lemon juice, garlic and ginger, salt & pepper if desired.
When thoroughly mixed, remove from heat and cool. Use to marinate vegetables as desired.
I have all my veggies washed, chunked etc, and put them all in a big bowl. Cover with marinade, and place in fridge overnight. Stir often.
before supper, thread on soaked skewers, and brush with marinade while cooking.
** If you choose not to skewer veggies, this still works great for oven roasted, or on the BarBQ in an appropriate pan.
*** If cooking in a foil pan on the BarBQ , watch as the sugar & juice will burn if temp is too high..
