Marinated Veggie Kabobs

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

1 medium eggplant
2 small zuchini
1 or 2 red or green bell peppers
8 medium button mushrooms
2-4 small-medium yellow onions
1/4 cup cider or balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon spicy brown vegan mustard
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
2 or more cloves garlic chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Wash and cut the vegetables into chunks about 1 inch thick (I know the peppers will not be this thick, but cut them into large pieces). Place the chunks into a large bowl. In another bowl, combine the vinegar, mustard, rosemary, garlic, and salt and pepper and whisk into a uniform liquid. Pour this liquid over the vegetables and, using your hands, turn the ingredients to ensure each piece is well coated. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator overnight. To cook: preheat the oven to broil and thread the vegetables onto metal skewers. Reserve the marinade to baste kabobs. Place the skewers in a broiler pan and cook under the broiler for 10-15 minutes. Baste the cooking kabobs with the marinade periodically during the cooking. Serve over rice or couscous with the leftover marinade as a light sauce. This is great as leftovers, too. The flavors intensify. You need to plan ahead a little to prepare this dish because the vegetables require a long time to absorb the marinade. But once the chopping and marinating are done, it is quick to do the final cooking.
