  • 1 large onion, cut into eighths
  • 2- 4 tablespoons of coconut oil

Instructions
  1. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes while you
  2. Melt Coconut oil and pour over all vegetables except tomatoes.
  3. Arrange all vegetables on skewers, running the skewer across the diameter of the zucchini and yellow squash coins, alternate wedges of onion with squash on one skewer, and insert skewers up through the stems of the mushrooms, and from stem end to blossom end of the tomatoes.
  4. Sprinkle the vegetables with Cajun Spice Blend on both sides.
  5. I prefer to cook the sweet potatoes in a grill top wok rather than putting them onto skewers.
  6. Place sweet potatoes onto a low grill.
  7. Allow to cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Toss the sweet potatoes, flipping them over then add the zucchini, squash, and mixed squash/zucchini and onions skewers to the grill.

  11. Allow to grill for 3 minutes.
  12. Toss sweet potatoes again, and turn over the mushrooms and tomatoes.
