  • 2 heads of cauliflower (about 600g)
  • A large bunch of fresh coriander
  • 3 tablespoons organic, grass-fed butter

4-6 metal skewers


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Blitz the coriander seeds, cumin, cinnamon stick, and cloves in a spice grinder (or pestle and mortar) until finely ground. Add to a large bowl with the crushed garlic and chicken. Mix until the chicken is well-coated with the spices. Ideally, leave to marinate for at least half an hour.
  3. Stack the courgette, red onion, chicken, and lemon on a long metal skewer.
  4. Melt two tablespoons of butter in a large ceramic dish / tray.
  5. Place the kebabs into the dish, turning to coat them in butter. Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked.
  6. 5 minutes before the kebabs are ready, lightly steam the cauliflower until tender. Transfer to a food processor and blitz until it resembles couscous. Add a generous handful of fresh coriander (stalks and leaves) and 3 tablespoons of butter. Blitz again and set aside.
  7. Serve the kebabs with raw grass-fed yoghurt / coconut yoghurt, and cauliflower couscous.
