Halloumi & Pepper Kebabs

Halloumi is delicious and ideal for kebabs as it is a firm cheese that holds its shape when coooked. its a flavoursome cheese that compliments the vitamin packed peppers and courgettes, and can be spiced up a bit! This recipe comes from one of my favourite recipes books supporting the blood sugar balancing way of eating, by Patrick Holford, which is available HERE.


Serves 2


2 tbsp fajita spices (from a packet is fine)

1 tbsp olive oil

200g halloumi cheese, cut into cubes

1 red or yellow pepper cut into similar size as the halloumi

1 courgette cut into same size pieces

6 whole cherry tomatoes

1.Preheat the overn to 190°C and soak 4 wooden skewers in a bowl of water for a few minutes to stop the wood from splitting in the oven – or use metal ones instead!
2.Put the spices and oil into a bowl and mix to form a paste.
3.add the halloumi chunks and veggie chunks to the bowl and stir everything evenly in the paste.
4.Put the skewers together by spreading the halloumi and vegetables evenly across all 4, and place on a baking tray.
5.Bake for 12 – 15 minutes.

Serve in a wrap with lettuce, or with brown basmati rice and a salad.
