Simple Halloumi Skewers – BBQ!!!

BBQ Time!

It’s BBQ season and we need loads of lovely stuff don’t we?! Not just boring burgers and sausages…. So I thought I’d share these super simple Halloumi Skewers!

As you know I have a lot of fab salads and lots of desserts too – all perfect for the summer season! My Avocado & Sweetcorn Salsa Salad is a must I promise and my No Mayo Coleslaw too!

So these lovey Halloumi Skewers with vegetables are delicious and such a change and are perfect for meat eater and vegetarians too. They are so so simple to make I was almost thinking about not even writing a recipe ha ha! And because it’s Halloumi on the skewers it doesn’t melt off the skewer as Halloumi holds its shape! Even when grilled or BBQ’ed – perfect

So I call Halloumi cheese, squeaky cheese, as it squeaks when you chew it!

Traditionally prepared from sheep’s milk in the Greek island of Cyprus, halloumi is a soft curd-like cheese free of rennet. It is safe for vegetarians who do not eat rennet.

You can basically add anything you like to these skewers – tomatoes, yellow peppers whatever! However these use courgettes, mushrooms, onions and peppers  – yum!

I also brush with chilli and garlic marinade sometimes but not every time,  depending on who’s coming round. So have a go, why not?

And remember if you’re making these using wooden not metal skewers don’t forget to soak those sticks so they don’t burn!

Enjoy the lovely summer and let me know how you get on! I love to get your comments
