  • BBQ/GRill ; gas, pellet, or charcoal (charcoal grill is my personal favorite!)
  • KnifeCutting board
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups
  • Mixing Bowls with lid
  • BBQ tongs
  • BBQ Skewers or grilling pan


  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Pepper
  • 1 Orange Pepper
  • 1/2 Large Red Onion
  • 1 pound Button Mushrooms
  • 1 cup Soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 1/3 cup White wine vinegar
  • 2 Tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Oregano
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Basil


  • Chop red onion, yellow pepper, red pepper, and orange pepper. The larger the better! Your veggies will shrink when grilling so typically about 2 inches x 2 inches works great! Place chopped veggies with mushrooms into a large mixing bowl.  
    Chopped Veggies
  • Combine soy sauce, oil, white wine vinegar, sugar, oregano, & basil in a smaller mixing bowl and whisk together.
    Veggie Marinade
  • Pour the marinade over veggies in a larger bowl and cover with a lid. Gently, toss the vegetables in the marinade.
    Pouring marinade over veggies
  • Place veggies and marinade in the refrigerator and let sit for 4-6 hours.
  • If using wooden skewers; it is important to soak the skewers just prior to grilling for about 20 min. (or follow the skewer package instructions).
  • After 4-6 hours, remove the veggies from the refrigerator and begin stacking the veggies onto the skewers. Interchange the pepper colours, onion, and mushrooms. I like to ensure that every skewer has 2 mushrooms at least; as they burst with flavor. (Alternately when in a rush I have omitted the skewers and just tossed the marinated veggies in a grill pain over the BBQ or on the stove..... the flavor is still there but the skewers are more fun!)
    Veggies on skewers
  • Preheat grill to medium heat (375-400 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Oil the grill gates with a little bit of vegetable oil and silicone brush.
  • Grill for a total of approximately 4 min per side; or until veggies appear lightly charred and tender. 
    Marinated veggies on grill
  • Serve immediately.
