In my last post, I made Hoisin Glazed Chicken Skewers as She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted Brochettes. As long as I had the Louisiana Grills Smoker fired up and I was doing Brochettes anyway, why not do the vegetables in the smoker? I couldn’t think of a good reason so I did.
This method of doing vegetables is so easy that it shouldn’t be so good but it is.
I washed four mushrooms and four cherry tomatoes. I cut four one inch squares each of red pepper, yellow pepper, green pepper and onion.
I put the vegetables on two bamboo skewers that had been soaked in water for 30 minutes.
I put the skewers in the pellet smoker that had been heated to 350 F for the chicken and brushed the vegetables with Italian salad dressing. I smoked them for 10 minutes, turned and brushed with salad dressing. I smoked for another 10 minutes and then brushed them one last time with salad dressing and served.
This is a great side dish because you can adjust it to whatever method of cooking you are using. They can go in a 350 F oven for the same time periods. Or, you could put them on a barbecue grill or under a broiler for 5 minutes, turn and go for another 5 minutes.
These are just so easy it is embarrassing. My advice. Don’t tell anyone how easy they are. Just serve them and take the compliments.
