Kebabs with potatoes are so easily customized, you can easily make some for your meat eating guests, and some for your vegetarian guests!


Grill tip: If you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak for a half an hour beforehand to avoid burning.

  • Small mixing bowl
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Two baking sheets
  • Wooden or metal skewers


  • 1.5 lbs Little Potatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 onion
  • 8 oz button mushrooms


  • 1 lb firm or extra-firm tofu, well-drained and pressed dry
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce (or a gluten-free alternative)
  • 1 Tbsp whole grain coarse mustard
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced


  • Step 1

    Combine all the marinade ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Remove stem and core from peppers and cut into large 1" × 1" pieces. Slice mushrooms in half. Slice zucchini about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut onion so large chunks hold together (easier to skewer.) Place into a large mixing bowl.

  • Step 3

    Slice tofu and chicken into even-sized portions (tofu was about 1×1-inch and the chicken was about 2×2-inch.) Place into separate mixing bowls.

  • Step 4

    Add a couple of tablespoons of marinade to the veggies with salt and pepper. Divide the rest of the marinade evenly between the chicken and tofu. Cover each bowl and allow to sit in the fridge overnight.

  • Step 5

    Preheat oven to 450 °F. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil or silicone mats.

  • Step 6

    Follow the directions on the microwave ready packages (five minutes.) Or, if using a 1 1/2 lbs bag of Little Potatoes, poke some knife holes into the potatoes, place onto a plate, and microwave for 5 to 8 minutes on high heat.

  • Step 7

    Assemble kebabs by placing meat or tofu, followed by a mix of veggies and potatoes. Continue to do this until nothing remains (make sure to do the tofu ones first so you can do not contaminate any of the veggies and such with the chicken).

  • Step 8

    Spread out evenly onto the baking sheets. Cook the tofu ones for 15 to 18 minutes. The chicken ones will need anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the size of your meat. Make sure to flip the meat ones halfway through!

  • Step 9

    Alternative grill preparation- preheat your grill on high and follow the same cooking times as above and be sure to flip half way through.
