Without wanting to tempt fate – BBQ season is here! And here is one sizzler of a meat-free dish for you. So light those charcoals, grab some colourful veg and prepare your tastebuds for some zesty goodness.
Halloumi is a great choice for BBQs because it tastes amazing grilled. A good tip is to soak the skewers for 20 minutes before cooking to avoid them burning. They’re very quick to make, but you can also make them up to half a day ahead.
¼ tsp chilli powder
1 tsp dried oregano
Zest and juice of 1 orange
2 tbsp olive oil
1 x 250g pack of halloumi, cut into 1 inch squared pieces
1 yellow pepper, cut into wedges
1 red onion, cut into eighths
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
8 mushrooms, quartered
I have never thought of serving skewers with couscous before. Feel like I've been missing out. It's perfect.
I tried this recipe yesterday though didn't have any oranges so I used lemon instead. They were lovely - very tasty and easy.
I tried halloumi for the first time at Easter on our BBQ and loved it! So glad to find a meat-free option that tastes amazing - and this recipe is one I will try.
love grilled or (ahem) fried halloumi, and the good stuff is available year round. Not quite good tomato season yet, but as soon as it is I will be sparking up the barbie!
