Tomato and Mushroom Skewers With Herb Sauce Recipe

The typical barbecue skewer recipe is a meat and vegetable combination. Beef and onions; chicken and zucchini; you know, the drill. But skewers don’t have to have any meat on them! These ones don’t, so they’re great for a side dish or an appetizer instead of the main event.

Tomato and Mushroom Skewers With Herb Sauce

You can have a little fun with the recipe by playing around with the type of mushroom. Go for whatever is in season and fresh – or even mushrooms you picked yourself if you’re lucky enough to have good foraging grounds nearby.

Serve these skewers as quick sides for burgers, pork chops, chicken, or anything else on the grill – the herb sauce would also be really good on top of grilled meat if you want to go there. They’d also be great if you’re feeding some vegetarians or vegans since the skewers are totally meat-free.

The Paleo folks can have them with pork chops, and the vegans can have them with grilled tofu, and everyone can appreciate all that delicious olive oil!
