EASY VEGGIE SKEWERS WITH PEANUT SATAY SAUCE

✔ 45 Minutes ✔ Weight Loss Friendly ✔ Gluten Free ✔ Oil Free ✔ Makes 8 skewers


Veggies:

1 small head of cauliflower, stemmed, and cut into bite sized pieces

1 large bell pepper or 4 mini bell peppers, seeded and chopped into 1x1 inch squares

4 shallots, peeled and quartered

2 medium zucchini, thickly sliced

1 cup fresh pineapple, thickly sliced


Marinade:

1/4 cup soy sauce OR tamari OR coconut aminos

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons sriracha

2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated

2 garlic cloves, minced


Peanut Satay Sauce:

1 cup vegetable broth

1/3 cup natural peanut butter

1 tablespoon maple syrup

2 tablespoons soy sauce OR tamari OR coconut aminos

1 tablespoon sriracha

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


For Serving:

Chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon dry roasted peanuts, chopped or crushed

Crushed red pepper flakes as desired


1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients. Prep and chop the veggies and then add them to the marinade bowl, toss to coat. Cover with Saran Wrap or a clean dish towel and let marinate on the kitchen counter or fridge for at least 30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, prepare the Peanut Satay Sauce. In a medium saucepan, add all the Peanut Satay Sauce ingredients. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then cook whisking frequently until the sauce is smooth and has thickened, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and set aside.

3. When ready to grill, preheat your grill. While heating up, thread the veggies onto skewers alternating between different veggies.

4. Grill skewers for approximately 8 minutes per side, or until vegetables are just softening and browning around the edges. Use leftover marinade to baste if desired. Then serve warm with the Peanut Satay Sauce topped with fresh cilantro, dry roasted peanuts, and crushed red pepper flakes as desired.



NOTE: If using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling to prevent burning once grilling.
