Lime and Coriander Quorn Kebabs

Vegetarian kebabs on a plate with salad
This is another old recipe which I have veganised/vegetarianised...the original recipe used sardines. Use Quorn or any other meat-free alternative such as firm tofu or paneer, depending on which you prefer. This dish went down particularly well with the chicken-eating Mr O!

Serves 8 as a starter/4 as a main course
  • 1 pack of Quorn fillets/vegetarian or vegan chicken-style fillets, defrosted if frozen
  • 2 limes (or 1 lemon), juice and zest 
  • 1 tsp ground sweet paprika
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and very finely chopped or ½ tsp hot chilli sauce
  • 2 tsbp olive oil
  • 1 large clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp chopped coriander or parsley
Mix the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl.
Cut the vegetarian fillets into large chunks (about 1"/2½cm square)  - I cut each Quorn fillet into 6 pieces.
Add the Quorn pieces to the bowl and turn to coat.
Marinate for a couple of hours in the fridge.
Thread the pieces onto skewers, retaining any marinade (if using wooden skewers, soak them first in water...I forgot to do this, hence the charred ends in the photo!)
Grill or bbq for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the remaining marinade, until cooked through and lightly browned.

Serve with a side salad and a wedge of lemon/lime as a starter, or with rice or a wrap for a more substantial dish.

Not suitable for freezing.

Alternatives: Add whole button mushrooms, sliced courgette, bell peppers and onion to the kebabs. Pin It


  1. this looks delicious. I was vegetarian for a while and i know how hard it is to be inventive! good job! i would still love to eat this!

    1. Thanks Manu. My husband (who eats meat) particularly liked this dish and said it was a good substitute for chicken.


Thanks very much for your comment. I love hearing your opinions, so please rest assured that genuine comments and competition entries will be visible after approval. This may take 24-48 hours, depending on how hectic my work/home life is at the time!
