MOROCCAN KOFTA KEBAB SKEWERS ON A BED OF JEWELLED QUINOA/BROWN RICE AND YOGURT DIP (MEAT-FREE)

Written By Gracie 

We’ve been lucky enough to work with Great Food recently and have come up with some recipes using their delicious gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan products that have 100% natural ingredients. For more info on Great Food check out their website: http://www.greatfooduk.com/

I chose to create a dish using the Aromatic Moroccan Koftas (http://www.greatfooduk.com/range/aromatic-moroccan-koftas/) and it was delicious! Packed full of nutrients and goodness that fuels the body!

I love mixing the yogurt into the rice and quinoa as well as using it as a dip for the kebab because all the flavours really compliment each other.

Ingredients: (Serves 2)

The skewers:

  • 2 x Great Food aromatic Moroccan koftas
  • 1 x Red pepper (chopped into chunks)
  • 1 x Courgette/ Zucchini (Sliced into rounds)
  • Drizzle of olive oil

The Rice:

  • 300g x brown rice/ Quinoa (I used the microwavable brown rice quinoa bags to save time)
  • 100g x Pomegranate seeds

The Yogurt Dip:

  • 4 x Tbsp Natural yogurt
  • 1 x Tbsp Cashew nuts
  • 30g x Fresh coriander stalks (save the leaves for garishing)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 x Garlic clove
  • Salt and pepper (Himalayan salt if possible)

Directions:

  1. Chop each kofta into 3 sections and start to build the skewer using the red pepper and courgette (see pic). Once built, place the skewers on a baking tray, drizzle a little olive oil over the vegetables and place under a pre-heated grill for about 15 minutes. If you have any vegetables leftover then place them on the tray with the skewers to add the dish later.
  1. While the skewers are grilling make the yogurt dip. Put all ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into a little serving bowl and garnish with a little coriander
  1. Once the skewers are ready heat your rice then pour onto a large serving plate. Add the pomegranate and some coriander leaves and mix well.
  1. Place the skewers on top of the rice, along with any extra vegetables, sprinkle a little more coriander over then enjoy.
