Healthy, because

Almost everyone likes courgettes, their slightly nutty taste and pleasant mildness make them versatile and so popular. They also have a lot to offer in terms of health: Minerals such as potassium and magnesium are important for metabolic processes and relaxed muscles and nerves. The green vegetables also score points with blood-forming iron, which is needed for the transport of oxygen in the body.

You can also prepare the turkey skewers on a grill, grilling them all around for about 10 minutes. The vegetables can also be cooked on the grill with the help of a grill pan.

Cut the turkey into 2 cm (approximately 1 inch) cubes. Peel the onions and cut into 1/8ths. Cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds. Rinse and cut into 2 cm (approximately 1 inch) squares.
