Vegetarian Kebab recipe

Every time we keep on hearing of the luscious and exotic tastes of kebabs. Are you amongst those, who are always discouraged to taste one of these magnificent delicacies, just because they demand the presence of meat? Then here are some delicious rescue recipes for you. Some of them have been bookmarked, owned, customized, versioned and even patented by my mom, who had been a hard core vegetarian since the time she was just seven years old. To her displeasure, I couldn't inherit this treasure of hers of being a life long lacto-vegetarian. But, certainly I could not resist myself in taking some irresistible picks from the treasure of those amazing veggie kebabs, she would make to savor her part of ecstasy and enjoyment in food.

So, let us cut the crap out and delve into these quick and easy to cook exotics. Here goes a few of my all time favorites and their recipes. Read, try, savor and enjoy!
