1. To make the dukkah, toast the sesame seeds, cumin and coriander in a small frying pan until fragrant. Place into a small bowl with the chopped almonds and mix to combine.

2. Microwave kumara for 3 – 4 minutes or until tender.

3. Cut any large beetroot so they’re roughly the same size as the kumara.

4. Thread kumara and beetroot onto eight bamboo skewers, alternating between each.

5. Cook skewers on a heated oiled BBQ over a medium heat for about 10 minutes or until tender.

6. Meanwhile, combine oil, vinegar and mint in a small jug. Season to taste.

7. Serve skewers drizzled with mint dressing and sprinkle with dukkah.


Soak skewers in cold water for 15 minutes before use to prevent them from burning during cooking.
