Dusted with sweet ground chile pepper and fresh parsley, these melty kabobs are wonderful served with roasted root vegetables for a satisfying vegetarian main course.
5 ounces Halloumi cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Pinch sweet ground chile pepper
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Roasted Root Vegetables (see recipe)
Wood or metal skewers
1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high. (If using wooden skewers, place in a sheet pan and cover with water, and allow to soak while preparing the other ingredients.)
2. Thread cheese cubes onto the skewers. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil with a dash of salt and pepper, then brush each kabob on both sides with the mixture.
3. Grill each kabob, flipping occasionally, until the cheese is golden.
4. Remove kabobs and from grill and transfer to a platter with the roasted root vegetables, laying the kabobs on top of the veggies. Drizzle the entire dish with the additional 1 tablespoon olive oil and then sprinkle with the parsley and a healthy dusting of sweet ground chile pepper.
