Vegetable Kabobs and Rice Pilaf

3 medium sized yellow squash
2 medium sized zucchinis
1 lb white mushrooms
cherry or large grape tomatoes
skewers enough for the above vegetables

Rice Pilaf:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups long grain rice, rinsed and drained
2 1/4 cups water
pepper to taste

  1. If you will be using wooden skewers begin soaking them, to prevent burning during the grilling process.
  2. Cut the squash and zucchini lengthwise and slice into large slices.
  3. Cut each mushroom in half.
  4. Skewer squash, zucchini, mushrooms, and whole tomatoes onto the skewers and set aside
  5. Start your fire.
  6. Melt butter in a medium saucepan, add salt and onion. Cook until onion is softened, about 5 minutes
  7. Add the rice and cook until edges are translucent, about 3-5 minutes
  8. Add water, bring to a boil, cover and lower heat. Cook for 17 minutes or until all water is absorbed.
  9. Remove rice from heat and let sit for 10 minutes
  10. Place skewered vegetables on the grill and grill until cooked. There will be some charring of both the vegetables and the skewers.
  11. Serve warm and enjoy!
