Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables; assemble the skewers

  • Peel the onion and cut into 1-inch pieces.
  • Remove the stems and seeds from the sweet mini peppers; cut the peppers into 1-inch pieces.
  • Cut the zucchini lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into 1-inch pieces.
Using 6 [12] wooden skewers, thread the onion, peppers, zucchini, and tomatoes onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients. Lightly brush the vegetables with oil and season with salt and pepper.

2

Cook the skewers

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, working in batches if needed, add the vegetable skewers and cook, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are lightly browned and start to soften, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, start preparing the scallions and sausages.

3

Prep and cook the scallions and sausages

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions. 
  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.

In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallions and sausages, season the scallions with salt and pepper, and cook, turning occasionally, until the scallions are lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes total, and the sausages are browned and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the scallions to a plate while you continue cooking the sausages. Transfer the sausages to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into ½-inch-thick slices.

Serve

Transfer the scallions, sausages, and vegetable skewers to individual plates and serve with the spicy green harissa.
