Photo: Jan Smith
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 kebabs)
Kebabs are a favorite way to grill meat and vegetables. This recipe features an unusual, delicious grilled okra. Grilling infuses the pods with smoky flavor, and it allows them to maintain their firm texture.

Ingredients

  • 8 fingerling potatoes, each cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 cup (1-inch-square) cut red bell pepper
