If you’re sick of sausages on the BBQ and looking for a tastier, healthier option, try these Moroccan lamb skewers. Lamb is a great source of protein, vitamin B12, vitamin B3 and zinc and is combined with antioxidant rich vegetables.
200g lamb, cut into 2cm cubes
1 cup pumpkin
2 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp cayenne pepper or to taste
1 tsp turmeric or to taste
1 tsp black pepper or to taste
1 tsp cinnamon or to taste
6 wooden skewers
Cut the capsicum, onion and pumpkin into 2cm squares. Ensure to thinly slice the pumpkin.
Mix the olive oil and spices together in a bowl.
Add the lamb chunks to the bowl of spices, and massage the mix into the lamb until well covered.
Thread the lamb onto the skewers, alternating with the capsicum, onion and pumpkin.
Grill the skewers on medium heat for roughly 5 minutes each side, or until well cooked.
