Excellent recipe !
I chopped the veggies and made the marinade after supper last night and we grilled the kabobs tonight. The marinade was excellent, although I didn't have the Riesling Raisin vinegar, I used Blood Orange. The recipe made about 8 ten inch skewers and I found that I liked putting a grape tomato at each end so I will change the recipe to use 16 large grape tomatoes next time. I might also use a little more than 1 cup of the fresh pineapple as well.

sounds delicious, but I thought grilling wasn't allowed? I guess once in a blue moon is okay?

Aziara- Grilling MEAT is not healthy .... Not veggies!

jjgerber - grilling is high heat cooking, which according to Dr. F is not healthy, doesn't matter what you are cooking. Any browned or char marks on the grilled items contain acrylamides - one of the most potent cancer causing agents (see Healthy Times Newsletter No. 3 from Nov 2002. Steaming is the healthiest cooking method.

Aziara - I thought the same thing. You are probably right about once in a blue moon being okay. Also grilling at "low temperature" and not allowing the veggies to become more than "lightly browned" is probably pretty important too.

I noticed there are no mushrooms in the recipe, but there are on the picture. Methinks the 'shrooms were unintentionally omitted. I made the recipe per that ingredients (plus mushrooms!), added a tablespoon of vegizest, and substituted very low sodium soy sauce for the Bragg's, but prepared them a bit different. I put the marinade and vegetables in foil, let it marinade overnight (in the fridge, bien sur!), and grilled them in the foil. I served these at a tailgate party to a bunch of SAD eaters and they were a hit. By the way, steaming vegetables isn't the healthiest method to cook them, adding them to soups is--the nutrients leach into the water and don't drip to the bottom of the Steamer.
