Delicious Halloumi Kebab Recipe with Thyme & Lemon Drizzle
A delicious summer dish, these Halloumi kebabs with lemon and thyme drizzle is quick and easy to make, and is a great vegetarian BBQ recipe.
- 2 medium courgettes
- 1 large red onion
- 250g low fat halloumi cheese, cut into 16 chunks
- 16 cherry tomatoes
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves (preferably lemon thyme)
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- Pitta bread, to serve
Halve the courgettes lengthways, then thickly slice. Cut the onion into wedges and separate into pieces.
Thread the halloumi, cherry tomatoes, courgettes and onion onto eight skewers. Cover and chill the kebabs until you are ready to cook (you can do this up to half a day ahead).
To make the baste, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, mustard and seasoning. (this can be made ahead and chilled, too).
Preheat the barbecue or grill and arrange the kebabs on the rack. Brush with the baste, stirring it first to make sure the ingredients are blended.
Cook for 4 - 5 minutes, turning often, until the cheese begins to turn golden and the vegetables are just tender.
Serve while still hot with warm pitta bread or why not try some sweet potato fries!
