How to make it

It’s good to have a vegetarian choice when having a barbecue – though you can just as easily cook these brochettes under the grill or in a char-grill pan. This recipe uses tasty Farmhouse Cheddar cheese with ciabatta bread and plenty of chunky fresh vegetables.


1. Thread the cubes of Farmhouse Cheddar cheese onto 8 wooden kebab sticks with the chunks of ciabatta bread, tomatoes and peppers, alternating the pieces and adding a couple of rosemary sprigs or fresh bay leaves to each one.

2. Make the baste by mixing together the olive oil, lemon juice and seasoning.

3. Preheat the barbecue, grill or char-grill pan. Brush the kebabs with the lemon juice baste – stirring it first to make sure that the ingredients are blended. Cook the brochettes for about 2 – 3 minutes, turning often, until the cheese just begins to melt and the bread begins to toast.

Serve at once.
