Peppers (red, green and yellow)

Courgette (large)

Red Onion

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup honey

stars or hearts,  piling the pieces for speed. Place into a bowl.

8. Take the wooden skewers out of the water and let your kids dress their skewer. If you have children under 5,

make sure you help them to ensure safety!
