What you do:

Mix marinade ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk. Mix liquid ingredients with the honey first. This helps the honey dissolve, then add the spices, garlic and ginger. After chopping up all your veggies, add them to the bowl to marinate overnight. If you don’t have time to leave the veggies overnight, 1 hour will work as well. Create veggie skewers and rub your grill down with coconut oil or olive oil. You can also roast the veggies in the oven at 400 degree fahrenheit if you don’t have a grill. Cook the veggies until they have blackened. Serve your veggies over brown rice, quinoa or pair with fish for a complete meal. Bon apetite!
