Everyone has their own way for making marinade or grilling etc so here's N'na's way!!!
It's so much fun to flavor dishes with fresh ingredients right there at my fingertips. The fresh herbs I selected here from my kitchen garden were thyme, oregano, rosemary and parsley.

Some of my ingredients from the kitchen cupboard: Ground cumin, cayenne pepper, white vinegar, salt, oil, dried parsley flakes, dried oregano powder, Cajun spice. I prefer using Apple cider vinegar for cooking but since I was out of ACV I just used the white vinegar!
Add some Yogurt.
Mix it all together
Store in a Ziploc bag and shake well and
Let it marinate and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours or overnight.
Get your skewers ready, cut what the fruits or veggies you would use,
I used some tomatoes, onion and green pepper,
and make your brochettes
Time for the Grill!!!!
Remember to turn often!
To keep your meat from being dry mix a little bit of oil and crushed bouillon cubes. I used something from West Africa called " Cube Maggi". Use a brush and brush the kabobs with the mixture.
Voila!!! Delicious brochettes!
It looks good doesn't it? It was delicious as well. We did serve them with rice and potatoes on that day but I enjoyed them just fine with nothing else!
Well have a nice week-end and hope this post gave you some new ideas for the next time you grill. If you haven't done it yet grow a kitchen garden and keep some potted herbs by your kitchen. They will always be useful and add some omp to your dishes!There is nothing like cooking or grilling with the flavor of fresh ingredients especially the ones you can have at your fingertips when you have a kitchen garden!
