BBQ kofte with whipped feta and tahini slaw

A light slaw with a nutty tahini dressing and a creamy whipped feta sauce are the perfect partners for a spiced BBQ kofte. Make them with beef or lamb mince
  • Total:
  • Serves: 6 persons



  1. Step 1

    Combine the mince, onion, spices and some seasoning in a bowl and pound with clean hands until really well combined. Divide into 12 balls and mould onto metal skewers. Chill until ready to cook.
  2. Step 2

    Put the feta and yogurt in a small blender and whizz until smooth and creamy. Toss the slaw veg in a large bowl, then whisk the tahini, oil, lemon, a splash of water and a pinch of salt until the consistency of single cream, and fold through the veg. Taste and add more lemon or salt, if you like.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the BBQ and let the larger flames die down, or heat the grill to high. Grill the kofte for 8-10 minutes, turning regularly, until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Step 4

    Spoon the whipped feta over the warmed flatbreads and add the kofte. Serve with the slaw alongside, and sprinkle over the mint leaves, sumac and pine nuts to serve.
