Veggie Kabobs from Boulder Mountain

Updated on April 14, 2014

Veggie Kabobs prepared on Boulder Mountain, Utah, by my son-in-law, Larry Johnson

These fantastic Veggie Kabobs were prepared with loving care by Larry Johnson incorporating a unique combination of vegetables available to him here, near Teasdale, Utah - you may add or delete ingredients to please your tastes or culinary pleasures. This lens will focus on the Veggie Kabobs.

Some special ingredients included here are Portobello Mushroom, Jicama, and Cauliflower.

The photo I took here was before the basting or grilling.

OK, you noticed. There are a couple of skewers of pineapple there, as well. Dessert?

Can I count Pineapples as Veggies? A suppose not! Sorry!
