Courgette and halloumi kebabs

Main Serves 4 35 min
These vegetarian kebabs are easy to put together and filled with smoky salty flavour, especially if you grill them on the barbecue. If you've got red peppers in your box, add them too. Serve drizzled over with the yoghurt and tahini dressing. This goes beautifully with lemony couscous sprinkled with toasted flaked almonds or chopped pistachios.

Prep time: 20 min
Cooking time: 15 min


  • Step 1

    Soak the skewers in a bowl of cold water for 20 minutes.

Make the dressing

  • Step 1

    Stir the tahini with the yoghurt to make a smooth paste. Whisk in the garlic, olive oil and lemon juice with a few tablespoons of water, just enough to get the consistency of pouring cream. Stir in the chopped herbs. Season and add more lemon juice to taste.

Construct the kebabs

  • Step 1

    Thread the courgettes and halloumi pieces onto the skewers. Mix the chillies with 4 tablespoons of oil. Brush a little over the kebabs.
  • Step 2

    Heat a griddle, non-stick frying pan or BBQ. Fry the kebabs, brushing with more oil and chilli and turning carefully every few minutes, until the courgettes and halloumi are golden.
  • Step 3

    Remove from the heat and drizzle over the dressing to serve.
