Veggie kebabs with ricotta pesto are a delicious alternative to the traditional kebab.
- 24 baby new potatoes
- 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into bite-size chunks
- 2 green peppers, deseeded and cut into bite-size chunks
- 24 chestnut mushrooms
- 8 bay leaves
- Frylight BBQ and Grill
For the ricotta pesto
- 1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 small packs fresh basil, a few small leaves reserved to garnish
- juice of 2 limes
- 120g ricotta cheese
- Light the barbecue for direct medium heat.
- Cook the potatoes in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water over a high heat for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain well and set aside until cool enough to handle.
- While the potatoes are boiling, make the pesto. Put the garlic, basil, lime juice, ricotta and 2 tbsp water in a food processor. Season to taste, blend well and spoon into a bowl.
- Tread the potatoes, peppers, mushrooms and bay leaves on to 8 skewers, spray all over with Frylight BBQ and Grill and barbecue over direct medium heat for 10-12 minutes, turning once. (Or cook under a high grill.)
- Arrange the skewers attractively on a board, garnish with a few basil leaves and drizzle over the pesto to serve.
