Turkey Kebabs

Kebabs basically mean summer time... and not only are these turkey and vegetable kebabs really summery, they're also super healthy. They taste delicious with the sweet and spicy BBQ Sauce with peppers, chilli and garlic; and are surprisingly low maintenance to make at home, even on weeknights when you're back from work late... Served with some healthy coleslaw and a big green salad, and you're in the realms of the tastiest, healthiest, lowest cholesterol BBQ ever.

For Kebabs

  • Turkey (or Chicken)
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions (Red & White)
  • Peppers (any colour!)

Marinade Ingredients

  • 5 or 6 Cherry Peppers (in a jar, in vinegar, available from dodgier looking shops rather than bigger supermarkets!!)
  • half a Red Onion
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • Half a tsp ┬áSalt
  • lots of Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Orange Juice
  • 5 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 fresh red Chilli
  • 2 tsp Sumac

To make the BBQ Sauce, whizz up these ingredients:

5 or 6 Cherry Peppers (in a jar, in vinegar, available from dodgier looking shops rather than bigger supermarkets!!), half a Red Onion, 2 tbsp Brown Sugar, 2 tbsp Soy Sauce, 2 tbsp Honey, 1 tsp  Salt, lots of Black Pepper, 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar, 2 tbsp Orange Juice, 5 Cloves Garlic, 1 fresh red Chilli, 2 tsp Sumac

[Before you make your Kebabs, soak wooden or bamboo-ey kebab sticks in water so they don't set fire to themselves on the BBQ]

Dice the Turkey into 2 or 3 cm square ish cubes (you can see, mine was wildly more un-even than this)

Also dice the Red Peppers, Onions and Mushrooms into similar size (maybe slightly bigger) pieces

[I would recommend using significantly more vegetables than meat in these or any Kebabs you make... it is much healthier for you, and at worst means you can eat them more ofen....]

Skewer the Veg and Turkey pieces onto the pre-soaked Kebab sticks

Pour two thirds of the BBQ Sauce over the Kebabs and leave in the fridge for a bit of time if you have some (an afternoon would be brilliant, but is not mandatory for tasty Kebabs)

BBQ for 25 – 40 minutes or until cooked and chargrilled

Serve with extra BBQ Sauce Sauce… These super healthy Kebabs are delicious with Pilavs, or with Roasted or Baked Potatoes, or just with big Salads….
