Grilled Veggie Skewers with Zesty Lemon Marinade & Quebracho Blanco Charcoal

  • Assorted vegetables of your choice (e.g., bell peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, red onions, mushrooms)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Quebracho Blanco charcoal for grilling
  • Skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling)
  1. Preparing the Vegetables:
    • Wash and chop the vegetables into bite-sized pieces.
    • Thread the vegetable pieces onto skewers, alternating between different types for variety and vibrant colors.
  2. Preparing the Marinade:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.
    • Brush the marinade over the vegetable skewers, coating them evenly. Reserve a small amount of marinade for basting during grilling.
  3. Preparing the Grill:
    • Start by lighting your Quebracho Blanco charcoal in a chimney starter or using your preferred method. Allow the charcoal to burn until it develops a layer of white ash.
    • Spread the charcoal evenly across one side of the grill, creating a hot zone for direct grilling.
  4. Grilling the Veggie Skewers:
    • Place the vegetable skewers directly over the hot coals on the grill.
    • Grill the skewers for about 10-15 minutes, turning them occasionally and basting with the reserved marinade. The cooking time may vary depending on the size and type of vegetables, so keep an eye on them to avoid overcooking.
    • The vegetables should develop a slight char and become tender but still retain a pleasant crunch.
  5. Serving:
    • Carefully remove the grilled veggie skewers from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter.
    • Serve the skewers hot, allowing your guests to savor the smoky flavors and vibrant tastes of the grilled vegetables.
    • Feel free to garnish with fresh herbs, such as parsley or basil, and a squeeze of lemon juice for an extra burst of freshness.

Enjoy the deliciously grilled vegetable skewers, infused with the unique smokiness of Quebracho Blanco charcoal. This vegetarian grilling recipe is perfect for summer gatherings, backyard barbecues, or any occasion where you want to savor the flavors of grilled goodness.
