Moroccan Skewers

This is an easy, flavoursome and budget friendly family meal which you can eat on a healthy eating plan or weight loss diet.


As we are also using minced meat, it means your little ones will find it easy to chew.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Serves 4


  • 400 grams of lean beef mince
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 handful of coriander
  • 2tsp of cumin
  • 2 tsp of coriander seeds
  • 2tsp of smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup of bread crumbs
  • 4 tbs of yoghurt
  • 1 lemon grated


  1. In a blender pulse all of the ingredients together (except for yoghurt and lemon).
  2. Take a handful of the mixture and form it straight around the skewers, or use smaller golf ball sized pieces to form around the skewers.
  3. On a hot BBQ or grill cook until cooked through
  4. Combine the yoghurt with the lemon zest and serve with skewers
