Summer is here and that means BBQ’s in Australia! The Thermomix is not often associated with Barbecuing however there are heaps of things you can do with the Thermie to make the BBQ a bit special. These Moroccan BBQ koftas are great with beef or lamb mince, perfect for Australia Day!
15g fresh Coriander
1 medium brown onion
1kg beef or lamb mince
2.5 teaspoons ground coriander
2.5 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2.5 teaspoons ground sweet paprika
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste
Method – TM: Chop coriander Speed 7 / 3 seconds
Leaving coriander in the bowl, add onion and chop Speed 7 / 3 seconds
Put the remaining ingredients in the bowl and mix on Speed 3 / 30 seconds using a spatula to ensure everything is well incorporated.
Method – BBQ: Mould sausage like shapes either around skewers without skewers.
Cook on breakfast (flat) plate until cooked through approx 4-5 minutes per side.
Tip: Mixture is quite delicate until cooked through, so be careful when placing on the cook plate. If you’re going to put the skewers through after cooking, squeeze the kofta where the skewer is entering and exiting to stop the kofta from breaking up.

Hooray for a nice quick meal that is also flavoursome! These Moroccan BBQ koftas are great with beef or lamb mince. Serve them alongside some fresh salad, or with homemade pita bread and yoghurt. We love making the mince mixture the night before to give the flavours lots of time to develop. This recipe was featured in Episode 33 of The 4 Blades podcast.
