  • 12 Ounces
    crimini mushrooms
  • 2
    handfuls parlsey
  • 1
    onion, roughly chopped into large pieces
  • 2 Teaspoons
  • 1 Teaspoon
    black pepper
  • 2 Teaspoons
  • 1 Teaspoon
    7 spice

  1. Clean the mushrooms well and dry them thoroughly with a towel.

  2. Place in a bowl with olive oil and sprinkle with some salt and pepper.

  3. Preheat grill to high heat or oven to about 400 degrees and roast or grill until tender. About 10 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.

  4. In a food processor, add the mushrooms, parsley, onion and all the spices. Pulse a few times until everything is smooth.

  5. Add to ground beef to the food processor. Pulse to incorporate.

  6. Chill for at least an hour in the fridge. If the meat does not cool, it has a higher risk of falling off the skewers while cooking.

  7. Shape into long sausages around thick skewers.

  8. Preheat your grill or oven to 450°F.

  9. Spray grill with non stick spray. Place skewers on grill, and cook, rotating every 5 minutes until meat reaches an internal temperature of 155°F.

  10. Yogurt Sauce: Combine herbs and yogurt and serve alongside kebobs.

    If you do not have skewers available, simply shape into long sausages and grill.

    Do NOT move the meat off the grill until it releases easily. The meat will form a crust when it is ready to be flipped and will not stick to the grates.
