  2. Lightly drizzle some olive oil over the top and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place kebabs into the oven.
  4. To make the sweet chilli and ginger sauce, take some grated ginger and blend it with honey and sweet chilli. Adjust the amounts until you get a flavour you like.
  5. Once the kebabs are cooked, drizzle with the sauce and place under the grill to caramelise.
  6. Cut a lemon wedge to place on the end of the kebab to stop the other ingredients falling off (you can skip this step if you aren’t going to be hanging your kebabs).
  7. To make the garlic butter, melt the butter and add chopped garlic. Blend.
  8. Add some chopped parsley to the garlic butter.
  9. Once the kebabs are finished under the grill, drizzle with the garlic butter and enjoy.

Method

  1. Add your diced vegan baking fat to your gluten free flour and caster and rub to a crumb
  2. Remove half and place that on a baking tray and bake that in the oven at 150oC for 5 mins, give it a stir and bake for a further 5 mins. Add the flaked almonds and bake for a further 3 mins
  3. With the remaining raw pastry mix add 2 tbsp of cold water and bring the pastry together. Press small amounts into your individual tart cases and smooth out so it looks neat. Line with cling film or tin foil and place in the fridge for 10 mins
  4. Defrost your berries and add your sugar. Keep the juices as they make a great sauce
  5. Remove the unbaked tart cases from the fridge and fill with rice.
  6. Bake them in the oven at 150oC for 15 mins. Remove the clingfilm and rice and cook for a further 10 minutes
  7. To assemble the tarts – fill the tart case with the berry mix and top with the almond crumble. Bake in the oven for 10 mins until the filling is hot
  8. Serve with vanilla sauce and a dust of icing sugar
