 1 cup commercially bottled tempura sauce
 ½ cup dry sherry
 ½ cup vegetable oil
 2 cups fresh mushroomshalved
 2 cups green and red bell pepperscut in 1-inch chunks
 2 cups Brussels sproutshalved and blanched for 4 mins in boiling water

In a container large enough to hold all of the vegetables in a shallow layer, combine the tempura sauce, sherry and oil. Add the vegetables and mix well to coat all of the pieces. Marinate the vegetables for at least 30 minutes, but not more than 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Turn, brush with marinade, and broil another 2 or 3 minutes, or until vegetables -are hot and golden. The vegetables may be served on the bamboo skewers, or slipped - off the skewers and served on a Jarge platter with toothpicks.
