These Grilled Button Mushrooms with Halloumi Cheese Are The Easy Recipe For You
To prepare these mushrooms with halloumi cheese, you will need button mushrooms, olive oil, lemon juice, halloumi cheese, and thyme leaves.
If you need to substitute some of these ingredients, try using shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, vegetable oil, paneer, queso fresco, Kefalotyri, oregano, and parsley.
The first step in preparing skewers is making sure your wooden sticks will not burn. To do this, you should soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. Having them wet prevents them from burning at the time of cooking.
Make sure to clean your mushrooms well, and then cut the stems out. Cut the halloumi cheese into blocks of a similar size to the mushrooms. You will then place the mushrooms and cheese on the skewer, alternating each one.
Try not to place too many on one skewer so there is enough space and they will not stick or burn.
The lemon juice, olive oil, and thyme will be used as a marinade. Be sure to allow your skewers to soak up all the flavors before you grill them.
Once ready, all it takes is about four minutes on the grill and you will have a delicious skewer full of flavor, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
