Thank you for supporting the brands that I love. All opinions are my own.

I usually come up with my recipe ideas by walking up and down the aisles of the grocery store. It has something to do with all of the ingredients being at hand. My creative juices start flowing and my stomach starts rumbling.

The other day I was walking around, brainstorming, when I noticed all of the bright colors in the produce section. It was like looking at a rainbow – bright bell peppers, purple eggplants, green lettuces and more. It was the ultimate summer inspiration; that’s how the idea for these rainbow veggie kabobs was born.

Rainbow Veggie Kabobs

First things first – pick out your vegetables.

For my version, I used cremini (common) mushrooms, eggplant, red onion, red cherry tomatoes, red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, orange cherry tomatoes, green bell pepper, zucchini, broccoli, and yellow bell pepper. I also put a lemon wedge on the edge of each skewer (more on that later!)

To prep the kabobs for the grill, I liberally brushed some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! It’s Organic buttery spread on both sides of the vegetables. It’s Organic is made from real, simple ingredients like a blend of plant-based oils, purified water and a pinch of salt. It’s great for cooking, baking, and grilling!

After coating each skewer with the softened It’s Organic buttery spread, I sprinkled salt and pepper on top and placed them in a foil pan. The pan is just for carrying convenience – you could use a plate as well.

I heated the grill to medium heat and placed each skewer on the grate. You should grill each side for 5-6 minutes – you will want a nice char on the veggies and for them to tenderize. I also kept a small ramekin of It’s Organic next to me along with my grill brush. I brushed more spread on top occasionally and let the melting spread drip onto the coals.

It didn’t take long for the veggies to get crispy on the edges and to soften in the center. I like a good crunch with my grilled vegetables and you’ll definitely get that here!

Once, you’ve reached the perfect temperature, the kabobs come off the grill the grill the skewers go and back into my foil pan. Time to make the sauce!

Grilled Lemon Garlic Sauce

Remember those grilled lemons we stuck on the end of the skewers? You can now remove them from each skewer and use them for the sauce!

Lemon Garlic Sauce is super easy to make and grilling the lemons in advance adds a nice smokiness. All you have to do is soften some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! It’s Organic spread, mince some garlic, and squeeze your grilled lemons.

Add a little salt and pepper and you have the perfect dipping sauce for your grilled veggie kabobs!
