Kebabs are so underrated...like flossing.
Similarities between kebabs and flossing:
- it's easy
- requires minimal skill
- uses minimal accoutrements
- doesn't take much time
- we should utilize them more than we do.
Kebabs make for a super fast dinner. Use the left-over mushrooms, onions, peppers, tomatoes, anything. Smoosh it together with any kind of meat - chicken, beef, even fish. And then stick them in the broiler for 4 minutes.
These spiced kebabs were a hit with BF, my biggest critic. This is a perfect weeknight recipe. The yogurt sauce over a pita is a wonderful touch.
