Vegan Butternut Squash and Chestnut Kebabs

This is a delicious, healthy, and scrumptious kebabs made with garbanzo beans, butternut squash, carrots, chestnut with a hint of rosemary and ginger. This can be served with a salad and a yogurt dip. This is a vegan kebab and this is my third post for the weeklong #FallFlavors.

This post is sponsored by Melissa's Produce and Nairn's as a part of #FallFlavors. I received samples that I used in creating recipes and the opinions expressed are my own. There is a #giveaway and make sure to check the info about fun prizes and check the end of the post for lots of fall recipes.


Nairn's Oat Crackers are simply amazing and used them in this kebab to bring everything together. The oats in this cracker adds to the nutritional value of the kebab as oats are rich in fiber. This kebab is packed with nutrition. Melissa's fresh veggies gave peak flavors to the kebabs. Loved the chestnuts! Carrots, butternut squash, chestnuts, onions and ginger, along with protein-rich garbanzos make this a hearty and nutritious one.


When the veggies are roasting, garbanzos can be cooked and everything can be put together easily. This will be amazing for a relaxed weekend bruch, making the day special. I have used garbanzos but any legume can be used. 


One thing to remember, if you are using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes. When you start prepping the veggies, soak the skewers are tey will be ready when you shape the kebabas. Metal skewers can also be used.


This is my third recipe for this weeklong event, #fallflavors. I have already shared Fall Charcuterie Boards and  Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cippoline Onion with Hatch  Chili Cream.
