Roasting veggie skewers with onion, tomato, and zucchini is a delicious and healthy way to enjoy these vegetables. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you make tasty roasted veggie skewers:
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Your favorite herbs and spices (optional)
- Wooden or metal skewers
- Soak wooden skewers: If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 minutes before assembling the skewers. This helps prevent them from burning during roasting.
- Prepare the vegetables:
- Peel and cut the onion into wedges. Separate the layers.
- Wash the tomatoes and cut them into bite-sized pieces.
- Wash the zucchini and cut it into thick slices.
- Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Season the vegetables: In a bowl, drizzle some olive oil over the prepared vegetables. Add a pinch of salt, pepper, and any herbs or spices you like. Toss the vegetables gently to coat them evenly with the oil and seasonings.
- Assemble the skewers: Take a skewer and alternate threading the onion wedges, tomato pieces, and zucchini slices onto it. Leave a little space between each vegetable to ensure even roasting.
- Place the skewers on a baking sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with some olive oil to prevent sticking. Place the assembled skewers on the baking sheet.
- Roast the veggie skewers: Put the baking sheet with the skewers into the preheated oven. Roast the skewers for about 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred on the edges. You can also turn on the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes to add some extra caramelization, but keep a close eye on them to avoid burning.
- Serve and enjoy: Once the veggie skewers are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly. Serve them as a delicious and nutritious appetizer, side dish, or even as a main course alongside some grains or protein of your choice.
Note: Feel free to customize the vegetables and seasonings according to your taste preferences. You can also add other vegetables like bell peppers or mushrooms to the skewers for more variety. Enjoy your tasty roasted veggie skewers!
