Wonderfully flavoursome Grilled Vegan Kofta Skewers with Middle-Eastern-inspired flavours such as cardamom, cumin and turmeric. Easy to make with ready-made vegan mince and perfect for a last-minute BBQ addition.
- 450g vegan mince (I used Oumph!)
- 3 crushed garlic cloves
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
- rapeseed or sunflower oil to brush
Place the vegan mince into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle in the seasoning: crushed garlic (or garlic paste), ground coriander, salt, cumin, black pepper, allspice, turmeric, and ground cardamom.
Thoroughly mix the spices into the mince with your hands until they are evenly distributed, then allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes.
Take one skewer at a time and gently press a handful of the kofta mince mixture onto the top of the skewer. Give it a gentle squeeze until it sticks to the skewer, then carefully place the ready-made skewers aside whilst you prepare the rest.
Before placing the vegan kofta skewers onto the grill, generously brush them with vegetable oil (e.g. rapeseed or sunflower). This will prevent them from sticking to your BBQ grill.
Grill them for 2-3 minutes on each side, flipping regularly, but carefully, to allow for an even browning, and once done, place them onto a kitchen towel to allow any excess oil to drip off.
Serve these delicious vegan koftas alongside a flavoursome yogurt dip, or remove them from the skewers and serve them in a soft, toasted flatbread.
