SIZZLING ORANGE HALLOUMI SKEWERS

SIZZLING ORANGE HALLOUMI SKEWERS

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.

INGREDIENTS (makes 4 skewers)

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

METHOD

  1. In a small bowl, mix together all the marinade ingredients and season well. Add all the vegetables and halloumi, and toss together gently. Leave to marinade for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Thread the marinated vegetables and cheese onto 4 pre-soaked wooden skewers, alternating the colours. Be especially careful with the cheese, which can tend to split.
  3. Cook on the BBQ or under the grill for 5 minutes, brushing the kebabs with any remaining marinade. Turn frequently until the cheese is lightly golden and vegetables are softening well. 
  4. Serve hot with couscous or bulghar wheat salad, or with warm pitta breads.
