Everything you love in the classic French dish… on a stick! Channel your inner chef and make this recipe ASAP— you will be amazed by the simplicity and scrumptiousness of these skewers. They are the perfect medley of summer veggies and flavor. To transform each skewer into a meal, you can easily add a protein of choice: chunks of chicken, fish, shrimp, steak, or tofu. Have fun with the presentation and serve with warm marinara sauce to pour over the tops. Use your favorite brand or whatever is on sale, and feel free to dial up the flavor by adding some Italian seasoning or herbs de Provence.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 jumbo skewers (serves 4)
  • • 1 small eggplant, sliced into ¼-inch circles
  • • 1 medium green zucchini, sliced into ¼-inch circles
  • • 1 medium yellow summer squash, sliced into ¼-inch circles
  • • 1 medium red onion, sliced into 1 to 2-inch chunks
  • • ¼ to ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • • Pepper to taste
  • • Optional marinara sauce

Soak wooden skewers in water for about 15 minutes, as this will prevent them from burning on the grill. Pierce the sliced veggies on the skewers in any preferred pattern (I typically alternate 2 slices of each) and generously mist all sides with olive oil spray. Alternatively, you can brush them with oil, too. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over and place on the grill set at medium-high for 15 to 20 minutes, rotating a few times while they cook. The veggies should be soft and lightly charred.

Serve hot or at room temperature, plain or topped with marinara sauce.
