    12 ounces button, cremini, or shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and cut into 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick slices 1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into 1 1/2 by 1/2 inch (3.8 by 1.25 cm) strips 1 pint (550 mL) cherry tomatoes 1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce 2 Tbsp (30 mL) sugar 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sesame oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 Tbsp (30 mL) sesame seeds, toasted 1/2 tsp (2 mL) freshly ground black pepper 8 to 10 bamboo skewers, soaked for at least 2 hours

    Thread mushroom strips onto skewers so they will rest flat on the grill. When threading them, alternate with red pepper strips and cherry tomatoes. In a bowl whisk together soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sesame seeds, and pepper. Place kebabs in a large container and pour soy sauce mixture over them. Let marinate for about 2 hours, turning once.

    Place kebabs on grill and cook over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes, turning with tongs and brushing regularly with reserved marinade.

    The mushrooms and tomatoes should be tender and the peppers browned. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
