There’s still a few courgettes left in the shops and there is just enough warmth left in the air to brave one last barbecue. We had these as a main course with a couscous salad. If that’s a step too far you could treat this as a side and barbecue some bangers or burgers for Halloween.
Courgette & Halloumi Kebabs – serves 4
- ½tsp chilli powder
- small handful mint, chopped
- 1 lemon, juiced and zested
- 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 courgettes, cut into 1 cm rounds
- 225g pack halloumi cheese, cut into large cubes
Mix the chilli, half the mint, lemon zest and juice, olive oil, courgettes and halloumi together in a bowl. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
Thread the marinated courgettes and halloumi cubes onto skewers (soak them first if you’re using wooden ones). Cook on a preheated barbecue for 7-8 minutes, turning and basting with any leftover marinade.
Sprinkle the rest of the mint over before serving.
