Cooking your vegetables on skewers is a convenient way to cook vegetables while camping or doing a backyard cook as shown in this grilled onion and mushroom recipe. The skewers not only make controlling the cook easier but are in prepared pre-sized portions.

Par-cook the onions before skewering them, to make sure they are perfectly tender once they get off the hotplate. Though this recipe pan fries the skewer, you can also grill them.

If you are using wooden skewers, it’s important to remember to soak them for at least 30 minutes so they don’t burn on the grill or in the pan. Steel skewers may also be used.
