Meatless Monday Recipe: Seitan Kebobs with Low-Fat Barbecue Sauce
I love grilled vegetables. Growing up in a Middle Eastern household, my mother was constantly making kebobs to get my sister and I to eat all sorts of vegetables we normally would've said no to if they were simply on a plate. (What can I say? Bell peppers are more exciting when you're eating them grilled off a stick!) During the colder months, I would recommend you broil this recipe indoors for an equally delicious result. This recipe is only around 250 calories for two skewers! Serve this up with some corn and a simple slaw, and you've got a healthy dinner everyone in your family will love. ----------------------------------------------------------- Seitan Kebabs 2 medium red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch dice 2 medium zucchini, halves lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch-thick chunks 2 beefsteak tomatoes, cored and cut into 8 wedges each 1 pound seitan, cut into 1/4-inch chunks (I would recommend checking out Gardein's Beefless Tips, which can be found in the vegetarian section of your supermarket's freezer aisle.) 1/2 to 2/3 cup low-fat barbecue sauce 1. Preheat the broiler or grill. Using 8- to 1-inch metal skewers, alternate the bell peppers, zucchini, tomato, and seitan, in that order, until all the ingredients are used up. There should be enough for 8 skewers. 2. Brush the barbecue sauce over the kebabs, then place on a foil-lined baking sheet for the broiler or on a piece of foil for the grill. Broil or grill, using an oven mitt to turn every 3 to 5 minutes until done to your liking.

@nokcha Seitan is great! And I feel like if you're vegan or vegetarian, it opens up a whole new 'world' of meal options. Also @Nisfit I loooove grilled zucchini too. That's always the part I go to first.
