Beef Kebabs Skewers with Hummus and Roasted Avocado with optional Red Pepper Dressing


This quick tea time treat is perfect for a fakeaway or as a weekday dinner!

Cooking time: 20 mins
Serves: Serves 4


  • 500g lean mince from The Meat Box Company
  • 1 small onion, diced fine
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, chopped fine or 1 tsp powder
  • ½ tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Handful of chopped fresh herbs, parsley, mint, coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 x Avocado


Combine the marinade ingredients altogether and add to the beef mince.  Mix well, cover and leave to marinade in the refrigerator for 1 hour.  Submerge the wooden skewers in water for around half an hour.  Shape the mince mixture into 10 x 2 inch sausage shapes, thread them onto the skewers and return to the refrigerator until ready to cook.  Heat up a frying pan over a medium heat, add a tablespoon of oil to the pan, place the skewers in the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side until nicely golden brown and cooked through.

Roasting the Avocado (pre heat oven 180c)

Cut the avocado in half and place on a baking tray with the broccoli and cauliflower florettes.  Drizzle with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper and a touch of paprika. Cook in a pre heated oven 180c for 15-20 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 1 minute before serving.

Roasted Red Pepper Dressing


  • 1 large red pepper
  • 1 cayenne pepper, cut in half deseeded and cored
  • 1 small new potato about 30g cooked
  • 2 tsp clear runny honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped coriander (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Heat the oven to 180c, put the pepper and cayenne pepper on a baking tray and roast in the oven until the pepper skin is blackened.  Pull off the stalk and scrape out the seeds, remove the blackened skin and place in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients.  Liquidise until nice and smooth.  Season to taste and thin with water if needed.
