BBQ Tandoori Style Stuffed Mushroom Kebabs

BBQ Tandoori Style Stuffed Mushroom Kebabs

Now we have spruced up our yard ready for the summer, and all my pots are bursting with color,  I want to be outside as much as I can.  I found some delightful new patio furniture, with Laura Ashley style blue print and some wonderful plant stands in a garage sale, sprayed them blue, and transformed my patio.   All my plants and herbs and veggies are in full swing and here in California, it’ just a crime not be outside as much as possible.

So I decided to make as many different dishes as I can for the grill this year. If you love the smell of mesquite,  here is a dish to try, with an Indian flare. Here is my How to Charcoal Grill the Perfect Tuna Steak recipe.

Be very gentle with the mushrooms or they will fall apart.  If you prefer to stuff them with ground turkey, it is an easy substitute, just leave out the nuts and breadcrumbs.  The paneer cheese was so delicious, I grilled the entire batch.  Just marinate it in the dressing and you have them for another dish.  Serve with quinoa.
