VEGGIE KEBABS WITH BARBECUE SAUCE
MAKES 4 KEBABS
2 bell peppers, seeded
12 button mushrooms
12 grape tomatoes
I onion, cut Into 1-inch pieces
I eggplant, cut into 1-inch
1 cup cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
Juice of 2 limes
2 tablespoons grated ginger
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Himalayan salt to taste
1 cup packed fresh cilantro
2 cups diced fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup raisins, soaked until soft
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked until soft
1 cup chopped red onion
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
(I added Mesquite seasoning... not sure if it's raw, but it sure added to the bbq flavor! maybe try liquid smoke if you want too.)
Soak 4 wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Thread the vegetables on the skewers and arrange on a platter.
Mix the marinade ingredients, except the cilantro, in a blender until well combined. Add the cilantro and pulse
once or twice to incorporate, but do not chop too fine. Pour over the kebabs and turn them to coat. Place kebabs
in the dehydrator at 95 degrees F to warm and marinate for at least 2 hours. For the sauce, if making, combine all the ingredients except the yellow onion in the blender and whir until well combined. Fold in the chopped onion. Brush liberally on the kebabs before placing in the dehydrator, saving some sauce for dipping or brushing on before serving.

Whisk or blend all ingredients together. If using a whisk make sure the almond butter or tahini is at room temperature.

1/4 cup lemon juice (I used less)

Grind the nuts in a food processor, then add the cauliflower and the rest of the ingredients. Process until smooth. Scrape the sides of the processor with a spatula to ensure uniform blending.
