Halloumi Vegetable Skewers with Tahini Sauce



  • 1/2 cup tahini, well stirred
  • 3 tablespoons Fustini's Blood Orange olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Fustini's Chipotle olive oil
  • juice from 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Fustini's Pomegranate balsamic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium bell pepper, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 small red onion cut into wedges
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lb Halloumi cheese, cut into 1" cubes
  • cooked white rice for serving
  • chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
  • wooden skewers soaking in water


Substitute Fig or Maple balsamic for a different flavor. Adapted from foodandwine.com


Step 1. 

Whisk together the tahini, olive oils, and juice from one orange, molasses, vinegar, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until emulsified and smooth.  Remove 1/2 cup of sauce and reserve the rest in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Step 2. 

Thread bell pepper, onion, tomatoes and cheese evenly on wooden skewers.  Place skewers on a large baking sheet and brush evenly with 1/2 cup of sauce.  Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes - up to 1 hour to marinate.

Step 3. 

Preheat grill to medium-high (400 degrees F).  Place skewers on lightly oiled grates; grill, covered, turning occasionally until tender and lightly charred, 8-10 minutes.  Transfer to a platter and serve with rice, cilantro and drizzled with reserved tahini sauce.

*You may need to add a little more olive oil or orange juice to loosen up the sauce to the desired consistency.
