Barbeque Recipes

The barbeques have been dusted off and you might be searching for a new recipe for something a bit different.  Here are a couple of options, including a vegetarian choice.
Halloumi kebabs with thyme & lemon baste (makes 8 skewers)
2 medium courgettes
1 large red onion
250g halloumi cheese, cut into 16 chunks
16 cherry tomatoes
For the lemon baste
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp fresh thyme leaves (preferably lemon thyme)
1 tsp Dijon mustard

  1. Halve the courgettes lengthways and then thickly slice them
  2. Cut the onion into wedges and separate into pieces.
  3. Thread the halloumi, cherry tomatoes, courgettes and onion onto skewers.
  4. Cover and chill the kebabs until you are ready to cook - you can do this up to half a day ahead.
  5. To make the baste - mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, mustard and seasoning - this can be made ahead and chilled too.
  6. Preheat the barbecue or grill and arrange the kebabs on the rack.
  7. Blend the baste ingredients and brush the kebabs.
  8. Cook for 4-5 minutes, turning often, until the cheese begins to turn golden and the vegetables are just tender.
We’ve also had a look for an easy sauce to accompany your burgers and sausages – this is one of the tastiest we’ve found….
