2 tbs, paste

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

cup(s), (160 g)

burghul

1 cup(s), (180 g)

carrot(s)

1 medium, coarsely grated

tomato(es)

3 medium, deseeded, finely chopped

1¼ cup(s), (150 g) , blanched

fresh flat-leaf parsley

cup(s), finely chopped

pine nuts

¼ cup(s), (40 g), toasted

Instructions

  1. Preheat a chargrill or barbecue over high heat. Place chicken, harissa and yoghurt in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat chicken. Thread chicken, zucchini and capsicum, alternately, onto 4 skewers (see tip). Cook for 10 minutes, turning occasionally, or until chicken is cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, cook burghul in a medium saucepan of boiling salted water for 8 minutes. Drain and cool under cold running water. Drain well. Transfer to a large bowl with carrot, tomato, onion, peas, parsley, nuts and cumin. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Serve skewers and salad with a dollop of extra yoghurt and lemon wedges.

Notes

If using bamboo skewers, soak in cold water for 10 minutes before threading chicken. Burghul is par-boiled cracked wheat. It has a light nutty flavour and is sometimes also called bulgur.
