"I created this recipe to add some zip to grilled vegetables," relates Laurie Whitney, Bradford, Massachusetts. "Their color, crispness and taste are tempting to all ages. Even my young son eats his veggies when I prepare them this way."
"I discovered this recipe while trying to spruce up plain vegetables for dinner guests," recalls Monica Meek Flatford of Knoxville, Tennessee. A mild spice blend coats colorful skewers of fresh zucchini, summer squash and mushrooms.
A niece gave this mustard-seasoned squash recipe to me. My husband, Doug, and our three grandchildren love the zesty flavor and slightly crunchy texture. The kabobs are perfect partners to any grilled meat and reheat easily.
I love to add this or that to recipes to create my own taste twists. Wild rice is a popular ingredient here in Minnesota. But the only way my kids will touch it is in these burgers.—Amy Barthelemy, Eagan, Minnesota
"My husband and I were thrilled to receive a gas grill as a wedding gift from some church friends," relates Sundra Hauck of Bogalusa, Louisiana. "We love to grill these hearty meatball-and-veggie kabobs. Barbecue sauce gives them a slightly sweet flavor."
