Greek Style Kabobs


When it is hot outside, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven in the house. Today was another one of those days here in Kelowna, BC, so I decided to do some barbecuing outside! Actually, I didn't do any of the grilling. Mark likes to do that part and I definitely can't complain because he does an excellent job. I just prep everything, then sit back and enjoy the afternoon :)


Here is a very versatile recipe that can be adjusted to anyones tastebuds and eating guidelines. You can change up the protein (poultry, red meat, tofu, etc.), veggies, and spices to suit everyones needs. I decided to do turkey and a Greek themed spice combo.


They turned out excellent! Perfectly juicy turkey breast (thanks Mark!), and beautiful caramelization of the veggies.

  • 4 large mushrooms, quartered

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • skewer sticks

  • Stick veggies and turkey onto the skewers in an alternating pattern.
