A little bit of summer sunshine is all it takes to get us thinking about picnics in the park and BBQs in the garden. These vegetarian kebabs from Crazy Jack Organic are a twist on a summer classic.

With halloumi, vegetables and a generous serving of summer couscous, this recipe is sure to please veggies and meat-eaters alike. Plus, you can always adapt the recipe if needed – swapping the halloumi for prawns or chicken is an easy way to keep meat-eaters happy. Prepare these vegetarian kebabs in advance and add them to the grill when you’re ready.

Halloumi is a fairly salty cheese, so is best enjoyed in moderation. That being said, it’s a fabulous source of calcium and protein, making it the ideal picnic treat. Enjoy in the sunshine with a chilled glass of kombucha for a wellbeing picnic to remember.
