I make these whenever I find lamb stew chunks at the meat counter. I've served it to people who aren't fond of lamb but enjoyed the flavor of these kabobs.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add lamb. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Pour 1 tablespoon marinade into a small bowl. Stir in yogurt; cover and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting. Drain and discard marinade from lamb. On two metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread lamb, mushrooms and zucchini.
  3. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until lamb reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting frequently with reserved marinade. Serve with couscous and yogurt mixture. Yield: 2 servings.

"We had this on the grill tonight with chicken (it was on hand)- I had the chicken on their own skewers and zucchini and red bell pepper together. Served it in grilled pita bread with the yogurt sauce and a mix of green onions on the bias and chopped italian parsley and cilantro.

It was a HUGE hit- hubs loved it and he's pretty hard to please. My 2 year old ate a bunch on rice."
