We do a fair amount of conserving our carbon footprint in our family from recycling every day to cloth diapering our kids as well as reducing our meat consumption. At least once or twice a week, I serve a meatless dinner. It’s healthier and better for the environment from saving water to reducing carbon emissions.
One meal I like to make that’s fun for everyone, especially the kids, is Meatless Italian Kabobs with one of MorningStar Farm’s newest products – Parmesan Garlic Wings!
These are great for the grill when you need to make sure everyone is taken care of at your barbecue, no matter what their dietary needs are. MorningStar Farms is the perfect product to help savor flavor using “Veggie Cuisine”.
When I was shopping at Target, I found a great selection of MorningStar Farms in the frozen food section. They have all kinds of food from burgers to breakfast to corn dogs.
Meatless Italian Kabobs are super easy to make. I make them with veggie meatballs, zucchini, cheese ravioli, and MorningStar Farms Parmesan Garlic Wings.
Don’t forget to heat up the grill while you’re working on these. First, soak your bamboo skewers for at least 30 minutes before grilling, preferably longer. This way they don’t burn up on the grill.
To prepare the food:
- Cook the ravioli for about 2 minutes, then drain and rinse it and dry it on some paper towels.
- Cook the veggie meatballs about 2 minutes in the microwave.
- Cut up the zucchini into large chunks
- Cook the MorningStar Farms Parmesan Garlic Wings for about 2 minutes in the microwave.
- Then spear everything onto the kabobs however you like – there’s no wrong way.
After you create the kabobs, brush the front and backs with a little olive oil to prevent them from sticking to the grill.
Lay them out with enough room on the grill and let them cook for about 3 minutes per side. Once they’ve been flipped, I just watch for the ravioli to start bubbling up just a bit, and then it’s time to take them off!
Once they’re ready, serve immediately. While Nate grilled the kabobs, I whipped up a homemade red sauce for dipping that is very flavorful. The secret ingredient is the Parmesan cheese. Here’s the recipe:
