Turkey and Vegetable Skewers Recipe

turkey and vegetable skewers

Another meal that can be described with my three favourite food words: healthy, hearty and wholesome! Me and my son really wanted to feel those BBQ summer vibes when I created this Turkey and Vegetable Skewer recipe. Although being March at the time of cooking, we grilled inside instead of outside on the BBQ. Paired with some spicy rice and tzatziki, this is a meal you’ll spend all week looking forward to! This recipe should make 4 Turkey and Vegetable skewers. P.S. Don’t forget to subscribe and follow me on socials so that you never miss any of my healthy recipes for weight loss.


This is another recipe that requires my BBQ seasoning blend. It’s real quick and easy to make so give it a whirl. There’s more uses for it than I can even list! Take 2 tablespoons and mix in with 150-200ml of water to make a marinade for your Turkey. Place 300g of diced turkey in a dish or deep plate and pour the marinade on top. Cover the dish, place in the fridge and marinade the turkey for a minimum of 4 hours.

Chop your veggies into thick slices, I’ve used mushroom, onion and courgette. If your mushrooms are really small, leave them whole as they break easily on the skewer if they’re too small.

Assemble your turkey and vegetable skewers once your turkey has marinated. You can buy long wooden BBQ skewers like these in most supermarkets although I would recommend purchasing metal ones if you intend on barbecuing. Place your turkey and vegetable skewers onto a grill tray and heat on high for 15 minutes or until Turkey is thoroughly cooked, turning half way through cooking time.

Tzatziki is a beautiful pairing for these skewers and only takes a couple of minutes to make so be sure to add it to your BBQ feast!

Tzatziki Recipe
I think my most important tip for Tzatziki is to use fresh ingredients, fresh yogurt, fresh crunchy cucumber but especially fresh herbs. Fresh herbs are much more fragrant than dried herbs and their flavours will flow beautifully throughout the yogurt. Traditionally, tzatziki would be made with full fat Greek yogurt however for this recipe I swap to fat free to keep the recipe diet friendly.
