Roasted Vegetable Kebabs with Curried Chickpeas & Yogurt Sauce

Roasted Vegetable Kebabs

with Curried Chickpeas & Yogurt Sauce

Kebabs, or food cooked on skewers, originated in ancient Greece, but can currently be found in many different cuisines all over the world. Evidence of people cooking kebabs dates as far back as about 1000 BC. In this recipe, we paired simply roasted vegetables with spiced chickpeas and topped it with a tangy and cooling yogurt sauce.

Drizzle the kebabs with a little olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until the edges of the vegetables are browned and slightly crispy.
