Honey glazed kebabs with pea and mint rice #liveslow

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


For the kebabs:

  • 500 g Lamb or Beef cubes
  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic crushed or chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of clear honey
  • 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 red pepper
  • Skewers or kebab sticks

For the rice:

  • Easy cook whole grain rice allow c. 75g per person
  • Frozen peas
  • 1-2 tablespoons of creme fraiche
  • Fresh or dried mint add to your taste


For the kebabs:

  1. Add the honey, crushed garlic and olive oil to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Add your meat to another bowl, and mix in the marinade
  3. Allow to stand for at least 30 minutes. The longer you leave, the stronger and sweeter the taste of the meat, so its up to you - are you prepared to live slowly?
  4. While the meat marindaes, cut the peppers into square chunks, ready to add to the kebabs when the meat is ready.
  5. When the meat has finished marinading, add the meat to the kebabs, alternating a few chunks with the odd chunk of pepper
  6. Place the meat under a heated high grill, and cook until browned on all sides. Keep an eye on the meat, and keep turning the kebabs so that they cook evenly.

For the rice:

  1. Cook the rice and frozen peas as per pack instructions.
  2. Add 1-2 table spoons of creme fraiche to the rice, and mix in the peas.
  3. Serve with the kebabs

To serve

  1. To create a little more of a fun feel, we served this with a mini plain Naan, which the kids loved. It is a great way to finish of a simple, but very yummy, little dish.
