Delicious Veggie Kabobs

For a recent bring-your-own-meat BBQ with some friend recently, I decided to ditch the meat altogether and just go right for the good stuff. So, Kirsten and I came up with these delicious veggie kabobs, and also grilled some corn, and had quite the satisfying meal.

Here's what you do:
Mix a healthy amount of balsamic vinegar, a dash of olive oil, a bit of brown sugar, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of cumin together. Mix in various chopped vegetables. We used mushrooms, red onions, green peppers,  and fresh pineapple. Let the veggies and fruit marinate for about a half hour. Then skewer them (if using wooden skewers, remember to soak them. Get them going before you even mix the marinade). The grill them until they are tender. Really simple, and quite delicious.

I would say that the onions and the pineapple are a must for this recipe, they add a sweetness and a bite to the other vegetables that is really great. Also, the favorites at the table were the pineapple and the mushrooms, so make sure you have plenty of those on both skewers.
