Vegetarian skewers with mint yogurt sauce

A while ago we were touring into the countryside, in Uruguay, in  Rocha. We walked a lot and ate very well. Fresh vegetables from the farm and still with a bit of the hearth in which they grew up. More fresh than that, is impossible.
Many salad with assorted vegetables were our main meals.

 So I hung up the apron, and ate fresh and wonderful things, like salads as I show you down, A  pink variation of the classic cole slaw and a cooked vegetables covered with a golden garlic.

It was great to relax watching the beautiful prairies and animals. By the way, did you know that an rhea egg is equivalent to a dozen chicken eggs?  My grandmother bakes a great sponge cake with a single rhea egg.

We strolled around the narrow streets of the small town of  Rocha where I found beautiful ironwork noticed some French-inspired homes of early last century. We walked by small businesses with beautiful props and it seemed that life in that city was  very tranquil. And as well the peopñe are very friendly and peaceful

We find in a small street market  very fresh   rose new  potatoes and that inspired me to make these vegetarian skewers  whit  mint yogurt sauce .
