Roasted Vegetable vegan skewers with Freekeh and spicy tomato salsa

May 5, 2017


YUMMM!! Nothing beats roasted vegetable skewers on a bed of spiced warm freekeh. This dish is so good for you, is low fat and easy to prepare! I love the addition of the spiced tomato sauce – I usually mix this through the freekeh which makes something similar to a Freekeh risotto πŸ™‚

You will need:

2 x onions

2 x zucchini

2 x eggplant

1 x red pepper (capsicum)

6 x cherry tomatoes

1 cup Freekeh

1/4 lemon

Olive Oil

Apple Cider Vinegar

Micro herbs (optional garnish)

For the tomato salsa:

20 x cherry tomatoes – roasted

4 x cloves of garlic – roasted

2 tsp smoked Paprika

salt and pepper


  • Wash your Freekeh thoroughly. Place into a medium saucepan with 4 cups of water and a dash of Apple Cider Vinegar. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer until cooked. Around 20 – 25 minutes. Drain any excess water and leave to one side in a large bowl. Dress with a dash of olive oil and the juice of a quarter of lemon.
  • Pre-heat your barbecue or griddle pan on a medium heat with some olive oil.
  • Chop and prepare your vegetables in big chunks, then skewer onto skewers.
  • Wash and prepare the cherry tomatoes and garlic for the sauce. Place into a roasting tray or straight onto the barbecue/griddle – roast until done.
  • Roast the vegetable skewers until char-grilled or cooked to your liking.
  • Place the tomatoes and garlic into a blender with the Paprika.
  • Serve the Freekeh and skewers onto plates. Feel free to drizzle the sauce over the skewers or into the Freekeh.
  • Season to taste

  • You could substitute the Freekeh for Quinoa, Cauliflower rice or brown rice
