We’re sticking it to plain and boring recipes, literally: these skewers pointedly make the case for trying something new, fresh, and exciting. The chunks of zucchini, mushroom, and bell pepper that adorn them are brushed in a tangy mustard marinade that gives them multidimensional flavor. And better yet, they can be cooked on the grill for added smokiness and delectability.
