DIRECTIONS
  1. Directions
  2. If necessary, cut the potatoes to be a similar size as the mushrooms. Parboil them for approximately 5 minutes or until they yield to a knife but are still firm. Cut the zucchini into large rounds and cut the pepper into large chunks.
  3. In a large plastic zip bag, mix the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss all of the veggies in the mixture to coat.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  5. Thread the veggies in any desired order onto 8 metal skewers.
  6. When the grill is hot, quickly use either a grill brush or a long pair of tongs to rub a paper towel soaked in olive or canola oil over the grates. Place the skewers on the grill and cook for 5 minutes on one side, then flip and cook for 5 more. Serve immediately.
