Juvela fresh rolls and part-baked rolls are a great accompaniment to BBQ food. If you like to make your own fillings, try Turkey Burger, which is lean and filling and easy to create. The Cypriot Cheese, Halloumi grills beautifully and makes a great alternative to meat on a burger bun, it’s lovely with a grilled beef tomato. If you like kebabs, you could make Spicy Sausage & Halloumi Skewers or for a vegetarian alternative use sundried tomatoes, Spicy Chicken Skewers are also a firm BBQ favorite. Salmon Fishcakes are perfect with a crisp green salad or a hot chilli dip! Coat Sticky Garlic Chicken Burgers in a garlic and honey marinade to make a healthy option. For a vegetable accompaniment, wrap Mozzarella & Rosemary Mushrooms in tinfoil before cooking on a BBQ.Greek-style potato bread is a tasty combination of creamy feta, flavoursome sun-dried tomatoes, and rich black olives, in a delicious crusty loaf. It’s great for dunking, filling, or simply spread with butter, team this with Minted Feta & Pea Pasta Salad made with Juvela Fibre Penne for a lunch box or picnic treat!
Make crunchy croutons made from toasted Juvela bread to top Cherry Tomato & Olive Pasta Salad or Feta and Pomegranate Salad or try Warm Chorizo and Avocado Salad crispy chorizo with sweet cherry tomatoes and creamy avocado, perfect for eating outdoors!
You can’t beat a great fruit salad for dessert after but you could also try a fresh, citrus Lemon Tart or if you would like a portable treat for picnics and walks, try for an indulgent treat Lemon and Blueberry Trifle.
If you buy ready-made burgers and sausages, remember to check the labels of condiments for allergens and ensure that your food cooked is on a separate part of the grill, or a separate BBQ, if you can. If you are a guest, tell your hosts, about this as many people are unaware of the presence of wheat and grains in sausages and burgers or the risk of cross contamination from crumbs. See the Coeliac UK website for more advice.
