National Vegetarian Week is here! 11th - 17th May is all about enjoying delicious plant based food and your chance to try something different. The UK Weather forecast claims a 9 day heatwave, so we thought we would share a tasty recipe which can be cooked on the BBQ!
½ tsp chilli powder
small handful mint, chopped
zest and juice 1 lemon
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 courgettes, cut into 1cm rounds
225g pack halloumi cheese, cubed
1. Mix the chilli, half the mint, lemon zest and juice, oil, courgettes and halloumi. Leave to marinate for 30 mins. Soak 8 wooden skewers for 20 mins.
2. Thread the courgettes and halloumi onto the skewers. Cook on the BBQ, or under a grill, for 7-8 mins, turning halfway through and basting with the remaining marinade. Scatter over remaining mint.
