Keyword bbq, kofta
Servings 6 koftas


  • Kebab skewers (if using wooden skewers soak in water to prevent burning)


  • 1 pack Meatless Farm mince or Naturli mince both available from Sainsburys. Or use Linda McCartney sausages.
  • 25 g chopped coriander
  • generous pinch of pink/sea salt
  • black pepper – to season
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium red onion chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (homemade or shop bought) I make my own by blending wholemeal bread in my food processor until I have crumbs.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • juice from one squeezed lemon


  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Let the mince mix sit in the fridge (covered) overnight or at least one hour to soak up the flavours.
    Shape 6 koftas around the skewers. Press the mix firmly around the skewers to stop them crumbling when cooking.
    Cook on the BBQ for 15-20 minutes (turning occasionally) until golden brown.
    Alternatively fry in a little oil for ten minutes. Turning to cook eat side.
    Bake in the oven 180C for 20 minutes.
    Serve with vegan sour cream or dairy-free plain yoghurt.
