This is a light recipe that is awesome on the taste buds. It is very easy and quick to make and goes nicely along with couscous. You can play around with the vegetable ingredients till you get the right mixture, so those are estimates. I usually get a stir fry mix with peppers and onion and use 1 cup and mince it in a cuisine art chopper. I usually form them on metal skewers and remove them when cooking since my grill is too small.

This is very tasty, The seasoning is spot on. After grating & combining the onion & sweet bell pepper, I squeezed out as much liquid as possible. I'm glad I did this because the meat mixture is very soft. I combined all the ingredients and formed into 6 equal portions and refrigerated to firm up to make the kebabs. I had trouble forming into kebabs on the skewers, so I made burgers instead. They turned out great and very moist. I would suggest coating your hands with olive oil when forming the kebabs/ burgers, this also helps with browning. If some of the olive oil gets into the meat mixture, all the better! Thanks for posting. I will be making this again.

Made these today and they were very good! Didn't have any red peppers, had to leave those out. Will add them next time. Other than that, made as written but didn't skewer them- just made little football-shaped meatballs and did them on the grill pan. Very easy, and loved the combination of spices. Thanks deinemuse, for a keeper recipe!
