How to Cook Kebabs Evenly

Since different vegetables cook at different rates, it’s best to either create single-ingredient kebabs or skewer together vegetables with similar cooking times, and cut into same-size pieces.

Grill kebabs over direct medium heat, turning them once halfway through. Remember that grill temperatures vary, so you should check for doneness on the early side.
