Grilled Zucchini and Eggplant

My family and I started our own backyard garden in the spring. We planted a variety of vegetables, but we ended up getting a bumper crop of eggplant and zucchini. We searched online cooking sites endlessly for as many recipes as possible to be able to use our newfound favorite veggies in the best ways. But, we soon found that the best way to consume the fruits of our labor was simply in their true form.

We love grilling our eggplant and zucchini on kabobs right on the grill, as a delicious and nutritious side dish. We love them with grilled chicken or steak. And, they make excellent leftovers. Here's how to make them.

Clean and cube eggplant and zucchini into chunks.

Place them into a large zip lock bag.

Add a few tablespoons of olive oil along with chopped fresh garlic and parsley.

Shakes to coat evenly.

Place alternating pieces of eggplant and zucchini onto kabobs.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and red chili flakes.

Lay tin foil onto grill before placing down kabobs.

Cook until tender.

Moms, what are your favorite veggies to use on kabobs?

Red bell peppers are great for kabobs along with onions and pineapple. My absolute favorite veggie is zucchini!! I love to chop up a bunch of veggies (tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, green onions, mushrooms, carrots and sometimes jalapenos) and cook them on the stove in their own juices or with a little water. Add a little garlic salt and some Herbes De Provence and put it on top of some rice and its a simple and healthy dinner that tastes great!!

 I love grilled zucchini and summer squash!  We are so missing it this summer as our garden was hit by a microburst and was destroyed =(

I love zucchini and eggplant. My squash seeds didn't do anything this year which is very unusual.

We don't do kabobs-mainly because I don't think of it.
