Lamb Skewers & Baked Vegetables

It’s almost our Greek Easter time and I’m excited!!! We LOVE Easter in our family and of course it’s always a food celebration. These lamb skewers or baked vegetables are a Papou and yiayia special, and you just know they’re going down a TREAT! @australianlamb has got us covered this easter, and I’ve come to you with a REALLY easy few dishes that you can bring if you're on dish duty. 

Baked vegetables, with a delicious grated tomato over the top to keep it from drying out and a delicious lamb skewer that you can make into small little bite ones or the big, main serve ones :) 

Baked vegetables:
Serves: 6
Prep time: 15 minutes 
Cook time: 10 minutes 
1 zucchini, sliced into large rounds
3 potatoes, sliced into bite sized pieces
3-4 mushrooms, quartered 
1 red onion, quartered
2 garlic cloves, crushed 
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, 1 quartered and 1 grated 
Salt & Pepper to taste
Olive oil, drizzle 


  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. 
  2. To a large mixing bowl, add all vegetables and season with olive oil,  garlic, salt, pepper, parsley and top with the grated tomato. Mix well to ensure everything is well coated. 
  3. Pour onto a tray and bake in the oven for 1 hour or until vegetables are tender. If you need mid way, give the vegetables a mix so ensure they cook evenly. 
  4. Serve with lamb skewers

Lamb Skewers: 
Makes: 8-10 Large Skewers 
Prep time: 15 minutes 
Cook time: 10 minutes 

2kg lamb shoulder, bone out 
1 large rosemary sprig
Salt, Pepper, Dried Oregano
1 Lemon, juiced (but keep the half!)
Olive oil 
10 wooden skewers 


  1. Soak skewers in water for as long as you can (this helps them not burn on the BBQ!)
  2. Remove excess fat from the lamb shoulder, and slice into bite sized pieces. This may take some manoeuvring, so take your time in getting the right pieces. 
  3. Add to a bowl and season with fresh rosemary, salt, pepper and dried oregano. Season to your liking - lamb is a really flavourful meat and takes on whatever you give it, so don’t be shy here! 
  4. Begin to skewer the meat, adding however much you like per skewer. If you wanted to get a little more vegetables in, you can switch each piece of lamb, with a piece of a vegetable like capsicum or zucchini, and then repeat with the lamb so you have a more colourful skewer. 
  5. Once all finished, cook on a BBQ of your choice (coal or gas) until lightly pink in the middle. 
  6. Serve with the vegetables.
