Low-Carb Spiced Halloumi Veggie SkewersPin recipeFollow us 125.8k

Skewers or kabobs always remind me of summer, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be enjoyed year-round. This simple low-carb meal is perfect for any occasion, not just summer barbecues and family gatherings.

These low-carb vegetable and halloumi skewers are cooked in the oven (though they can also be grilled or broiled) making them perfect to enjoy any time of the year.

To save on time, the vegetables and halloumi can be marinated ahead of time, which means the skewers just need to be threaded and baked before cooking.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

Skewers:
  • 1 medium zucchini (200 g/ 7.1 oz)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper (120 g/ 120 oz)
  • 1 medium red onion (110 g/ 3.9 oz)
  • 200 g white mushrooms (7.1 oz)
  • 250 g halloumi (8.8 oz)
Marinade:
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (30 ml)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Turn the broiler/grill (top element) of your oven to medium high. Prepare the vegetables: cut the zucchini into 1 cm/ 0.4" thick slices, the capsicum and onion into 3 cm/ 1.2" squares, and the mushrooms in half (or leave whole if small mushrooms). Cut the halloumi into 2 cm/ 0.8" squares.

  2. Prepare the marinade by mixing all ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the prepared vegetables and halloumi and stir to coat. Set aside for half an hour.

  3. While the vegetables are marinating, soak 8 skewers in water (for wooden skewers only, no soaking needed for metal skewers).
  4. After half an hour, thread the vegetables onto the skewers.
    Note there will be some marinade left in the bottom of the bowl — reserve this to use later. Place on the top tray in the oven and cook 20-25 minutes with the door closed, turning half way through.
