Chargrilled Vegetable Skewers with Cashew Dipping Sauce

A delicious starter or light meal in itself, these skewers are loaded with antioxidant-rich veggies and healthy fats in the form of a spicy dipping sauce.


  • 2 zucchini, cut into 1-2cm rounds
  • 1 punnet grape tomatoes
  • 1 yellow capsicum, cut into even sized square pieces
  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into equal lengths
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for cooking

Cashew Dipping Sauce

  • ¼ cup Healthy Way raw cashews
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 tbs tamari soy sauce
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 lime, juiced


Step 1.
Soak wooden skewers prior to cooking.

Step 2.
To make the sauce, combine cashews, olive oil, fish sauce, soy sauce, honey, lime juice and enough water in a blender to make a runny consistency. Set aside until needed.

Step 3.
Thread vegetables onto the pointy end of the skewers. Pre-heat BBQ or grill plate with olive oil and place skewers on the grill. Cook for 7-10 minutes, turning regularly, until charred and the vegetables are tender.

Step 4.
Take off the heat and serve with the cashew dipping sauce.

Serves 2-4
