Grilled Veggie Skewers with Cilantro Garlic Butter

Grilled Veggie Skewers with Cilantro Garlic Butter

We had friends coming over for dinner recently and I decided to serve some grilled veggie skewers with cilantro garlic butter as a side dish. I skewered some bell peppers, red onion, zucchini, and grape tomatoes then grilled them until the veggies were browned on the edges and starting to soften. Once removed from the grill, I then brushed them with some cilantro garlic butter before serving. The grilled veggies were a simple and healthy side dish and they tasted great.

Skewer the different vegetables on the wooden skewers alternating between the vegetables.

Place on the hot grill and cook for about 5-6 minutes per side, until edges are browned and the vegetables are starting to soften. Remove from the grill and place on a cutting board or baking sheet.

Make the cilantro garlic butter while the skewers are on the grill by combining the melted butter with the minced garlic and chopped cilantro; mix well.

Brush the skewers with the cilantro garlic butter then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve and enjoy.
