Pomegranate and Cumin Infused beetroot, halloumi, beetroot and courgette kebabs
Pomegranate and Cumin Infused beetroot, halloumi, beetroot and courgette kebabs in lime and toasted cumin seed dressing will ensure your vegetarian guests won’t feel left out of the BBQ.
They’ll be fighting off the meat eaters who will be after a taste. The infused beetroot in this recipe provides a quick and easy way to add extra flavour and colour, creating a seriously tasty light summer supper or vegetarian option.
Serves: 2 | Preparation time: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 10 minutes
1 tsp cumin seeds
½ lime juiced
1tbsp olive oil
200g Halloumi, torn into bite sized chunks
4 Cumin & Pomegranate Infused Beetroot, cut into quarters
4 spring onions, cut into 3cm battens
1 small courgette, sliced into disks
4 kebab sticks
What to do:
If using wooden kebab sticks, soak them in water before using so they don’t burn on the bbq.
In a small frying pan, toast the cumin seeds for a minute or two until they become fragrant, take care not to burn them. Remove from the heat and stir in the lime juice and oil and season well.
Tip the veg and halloumi into a large bowl, pour over the dressing and combine well to coat. Thread the veg and cheese onto kebab sticks, reserving any dressing left in the bowl. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side the BBQ or under the grill, until the cheese is browned and crisp on the outside and the veg is cooked.
Pour the reserved dressing onto a serving plate. Once cooked turn the kebabs on the serving plate to soak up the remaining dressing.
Cook’s Tip 1: Cumin & Pomegranate Beetroot can be purchased from Waitrose, or choose a different flavour from the infused beetroot ready-to-eat range, which is available in major retailers and includes: Spicy Sweetfire Baby Beetroot (Tesco Finest), Sweet Chilli Rosebud Beetroot (M&S), Sweet & Spicy Chilli Beetroot (Waitrose), Juniperberry & Black Pepper Cocktail Beetroot (Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference), Sweetflame Beetroot (Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference), Cumin & Pomegranate Beetroot (Waitrose) and Honey & Ginger Beetroot (ASDA).
Cook’s Tip 2: These kebabs are great served with Barbecue Beetroot Relish. Available from Tesco, this new tasty barbecue relish is perfect for adding colour and flavour to barbecued food including burgers, pork chops or halloumi kebabs. It also doubles up as a sweet yet earthy dip, perfect with breadsticks or crisps and can be used as a tasty dressing for salads too. RRP £1.25 for 200g.
