The most common form of sou lakia in Athens and environs is just the lamb
meat and no veggies.

tomatoes into rounds, peel the mushrooms.  Take some clean skewers.  Put
the pieces of meat on to the skewer.  Firstly a piece of meat, then a slice
of onion and tomato and a piece of mushroom, then again a piece of meat,
and so on, until the skewer is full.  Sprinkle well with thyme.  Place
skewers under the grill.  Cook well and serve with pilaff.
