  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 200g (7oz) basmati rice, rinsed
  • zest and juice 2 lemons
  • 100g (4oz) frozen peas
  • 500g (1lb 2oz) halloumi, cubed
  • 3 red peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 2 white onions, cut into chunks
  • handful parsley leaves, chopped
  • tomato chutney or relish, to serve


  • Heat a pan with a little oil or butter, and fry the chopped onion gently for 2 minutes. Add the rice and lemon zest, fry for 1 minute and then add 400ml (14fl oz) cold water and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, simmer for 1 minute, then turn the heat right down, cover the pan and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the peas 3 minutes before the end of cooking.

  • Meanwhile, alternate the halloumi, peppers and onion chunks onto kebab skewers and grill on the barbie for 5 minutes, turning halfway through, until the halloumi is crisp and blackened on the outside.

  • Stir the parsley and lemon juice through the rice, and season just before serving. Serve the kebabs with tomato chutney or relish.
