Cook 15 mins

Kababs are popular in the Middle East. These are often prepared during barbecues and eaten with pita bread and salads. Yield is approximate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. mix all ingredients in a food processor, pulse for a few seconds just enough to mix them. If you don't have a food processor, mix them well with your hands in a bowl.
  2. shape like jumbo hotdogs, not footlong just 3 inches long :P
  3. skewer them and grill each side until cooked; you can put 2 kebabs for each skewer then serve warm.

These were excellent, the next time I might reduce the amount of salt, but other than that they were very good.

Wonderfully flavoursome: just loved the blend of flavours! I added about a teaspoon of lemon zest and used finely minced garlic (2 cloves) and one onion, also finely minced instead of the garlic and onion powder. I suppose I prefer to use real ingredients instead of powders wherever I can, and I figured that since the mixture was going to be processed that this would be fine, and it was. I did drain off some liquid - which I imagine came from the onion - after the mixture had been processed. We thoroughly enjoyed these with hummus and salad greens in pita bread. Thanks for sharing this super recipe!
