#BurgerMonth: Skewered Veggies with the help of Fire Wire Grilling Tools + Give-Away

When I saw that Fire Wire Grilling Tools was sponsoring #BurgerMonth, I was excited. They seemed like a cool tool. Then a box came in the mail with a set for me to try.* Surprise! Woohoo! I think I might have squealed loudly when I opened the box! It was completely unexpected, but I put them right to use.

You have the chance to get a set of your very own!

What I loved about them...
  • No pre-soaking! Fire Wire grilling skewers are made of 100% food grade stainless steel, so you aren't having to soak bamboo skewers to avoid splinters in your food!
  • Go big! Fire Wire grilling skewers hold two or three times the amount of food as those bamboo skewers. I always to have leave grabbing space on a traditional skewer. These, you can load up to the end; you just grab it by the loop.
  • Easy clean-up! They are dishwasher safe and have a life-time guarantee.

What I didn't like about them...              
  • They only come in a pack of two! ;) I need to get my hands on a few more for our big summer cookouts.                                                                                     

Here's what I made with them...give yourself about 45 minutes of lead time so the veggies can take on the flavor of the marinade.

Ingredients [printable recipe for Marinated, Grilled Veggies]
  • 1 portabello mushroom, cut into 9 1" squares or so
  • 2 zucchinis, sliced into thick coins
  • 1 poblano chile, sliced into 1" pieces
  • 1/3 C low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 T minced fresh ginger
  • 1 T minced fresh garlic
  • 1 T sesame oil
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t ginger syrup
  • dash of crushed red pepper

Whisk the last seven ingredients together in a small mixing bowl to create the marinade. Thread the veggies onto the skewers and place in a large, flat-bottom container or baking pan. Pour the marinade over the top. Let marinate for 15 minutes, then flip over. Marinate for another 15 minutes. Grill as desired.

*Full Disclosure: I received 1 complimentary set of Fire Wire Grilling Skewers as a thank you for participating in #BurgerMonth. All comments are 100 % accurate and 100% my own.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found."
