Miso aubergine and halloumi kebabs

These flavoursome kebabs feature a super-easy miso, soy and ginger dressing and interesting textures with smoky aubergine and charred halloumi. Fire up the barbecue for a delicious veggie main.

  1. If using wooden skewers, soak 12 for 10 mins before using. Toss the aubergines, miso dressing and sesame seeds in a large bowl; set aside for 5 mins to marinate. Thread the aubergines, halloumi, onions and tomatoes onto the skewers.
  2. Barbecue or grill the kebabs over a high heat for 4-5 mins each side, turning 2-3 times, until the aubergines are cooked through and the halloumi is lightly charred.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt with the garlic and lime juice; season well. Serve the kebabs in flatbreads with the rocket, drizzling over the yogurt dressing and squeezing over the lime wedges.
