Add the tomatoes, mushrooms,1 tablespoon of oil and 2 teaspoons of Organic Mediterranean Seasoning to the bowl and toss to coat. 

  4. Alternate the vegetables onto a metal skewer and set aside on a sheet pan.

If the vegetables are not getting any color turn the grill up slightly but not so high that the oil and seasoning burns.
