Servings 8 kabobs


Shish Kabobs

  • 8 whole cherry tomatoes
  • 16 slices zucchini
  • 2 large sweet onions
  • 16 small brown button mushrooms
  • 16 slices yellow summer squash
  • 8 cubes tempeh
  • 8 slices red pepper
  • 8 wooden skewers
  • extra virgin olive oil spray

Brown Rice

  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice


Shish Kabobs

  • Prepare all the vegetables and tempeh by slicing or cubing as necessary so that they will fit on the skewers.
  • Arrange the ingredients on 8 skewers.
  • Spray lightly with olive oil
  • Moisten the skewer ends ( to prevent the wood from burning)
  • Grill on medium heat for about 3-6 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking. The veggies should look cooked through, but not singed.
  • Serve on a bed of brown rice.

Brown Rice

  • The easiest way to prepare brown rice is using a rice cooker. Follow the directions for the cooker. Typically the rice/water ratio is 1 cup rice/ 2 cups water. So for this recipe use 2 cups raw rice and 4 cups water.


So easy even Ken can make it!
Throw some corn cobs on the grill as well.
They go nicely with the kabobs.
