Mix marinade ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to blend. Place prepared vegetables, and tofu if using, in a 2-gallon zipper-top plastic bag. Pour in the marinade, seal the bag, and turn over to coat everything. Marinate in the refrigerator 1 to 4 hours. When ready to cook, remove vegetables from marinade and thread onto kabob rods, if using rotisserie, or skewers if using grill. Leave a little space between the vegetables for air to circulate. Grill using rotisserie or directly on grill until all vegetables are golden and tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from rods or skewers and serve warm, garnished with the crumbled feta, if desired. Since vegetables will grill at different rates, you may want to place all the vegetables of each type together on the skewers--the onions on one, for example, and bell peppers on another. This makes it easy to remove the skewers when those veggies are done.

  • I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I used shrimp and added cherry tomatoes just because it was available in the garden. I also used one of those pans designed for the grill (it has holes in it) and grilled everything on the pan instead of using skewers. Skewers is fun but using the pan made preparing the meal go quicker. I shared it with the entire family and they couldn’t get enough of it.
