Summer Delights


Gaby Wieland from Neantóg Kitchen shares two divine summer recipes. First up, vegetable skewers —the fun way to get in your veggies, followed by a scrumptious strawberry cake for dessert.


No outdoor dining without cooking over a fire! One of the oldest cooking utensils must be the skewer. You can
either use a metal or wooden skewer and with homegrown ingredients from your garden or polytunnel, this is a
great way to enjoy your vegetables.

Recipe by Gaby Wieland

• Red pepper, halve and deseed
• Yellow pepper, halve and deseed
• Courgette, top and tail
• Button mushrooms or Portobello
• Red onion, skin removed
• Halloumi or firm tofu – optional
• Other optional ingredients are
cherry tomatoes, pineapple,
• 4 tbsp olive oil
• Juice of 1?2 lemon
• 1 tsp basil and oregano
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1 tsp honey and mustard – optional

1 Soak wooden skewers in water for 15-20 minutes (this stops them burning).
2 If you don’t have a BBQ, preheat the oven to 220°C or 200°C Fan or Gas 6.
3 Blend the dressing ingredients.
4 Cut vegetables the same size, about 2cm/1/2”.
5 Thread vegetables onto skewers.
6 Brush with the dressing.
7 Cook for 20-30 minutes on BBQ or in the oven. Turn them in between to cook them
8. Brush with remaining glaze before serving.
…and when it rains? Cook in your oven, grill or griddle pan!
Use a lightly oiled, preheated griddle pan on your stove top and cook just as you would on
the fire. Alternatively, place the skewers in a roasting tin in a very hot oven (220°C) for 10
minutes, turn them over and cook for another 10 minutes or until vegetables are soft.
