Pumpkin and onion skewers

  • RECIPE MAKES: 6 skewers
  • PREP TIME: 25min
  • COOK TIME: 16min
Step 1

Cut pumpkin into 3cm cubes.   

Step 2

Place cubes in a microwave-safe dish; add 1 tbsp cold water; cover and microwave on High for 4 minutes or until just tender.  

Step 3

Drain; set aside; 10 mins to cool.   . 

Step 4

Trim onion bulbs, leaving 1cm of stalk; thread pumpkin and onion alternately onto skewers.  

Step 5

On grill or BBQ over a medium-heat, grill vegetable skewers until tender approx. 10mins. Meanwhile, brush with maple syrup and turn several times to avoid sticking and burning.

Top tip:

Be careful glazing skewers on BBQ incase maple syrup catches fire.
