COURSE: Vegetables and Sides
Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise. Remove the stems, core, and cut out the white pith. Cut the zucchinis, patty-pan and eggplants into rounds. Remove stems from the mushrooms. Mix the marinade ingredients in a bowl and pour into a large freezer bag. Add the vegetables and marinate in the fridge for 2 to 24 hours.
Put vegetables on skewers, alternating kinds.
Grill the skewer 1 (longer cooking) vegetables using medium or medium-low heat setting. After about 8 minutes, add the skewer 2 (shorter cooking time) vegetables. You may also want to add some corn on the cob, which you place directly on the grill, no skewer needed.
