Ingredients

2 pounds ground veal

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

3 tablespoons bread crumbs

2 large eggs, beaten lightly

2 teaspoons finely minced garlic

2 teaspoons minced ginger root

2 teaspoons ground coriander

1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled

1/2 teaspoon herbes de Provence

1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

1 lemon, juiced, or to taste

Salt

Assorted vegetables, such as green or red bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and onion, all cubed except tomatoes, for the kabobs, as desired

Vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl combine the veal, parsley, bread crumbs, eggs, garlic, gingerroot, coriander, oregano, herbes de Provence, lemon pepper, lemon juice, and salt. With dampened hands, form the mixture into meatballs, each about 2 inches in diameter.
  3. Arrange 4 meatballs interspersed with vegetables of choice, except tomatoes, on six long skewers and place in a baking pan. Brush kabobs with vegetable oil.
