Chef’s Inspiration

This dish was inspired by the Mediterranean flavours of Greece, light and tart from lemon and red wine vinegar with the richness of olive oil balanced with fresh herbs of rosemary, oregano and parsley. Best eaten by taking a little bit of each component and having a extra large bite full of flavour!

Preparation

Follow timing on MANNA package, this time varies by +/- 3 minutes depending on how hot your oven is calibrated and how cold your fridge is. You want to ensure that the internal food temperature reaches about 165°F/74°C, piping hot. Place kebabs and lemon potates into the oven for about 18 minutes. Once food is all ready, place marinated vegetables directly onto plate followed by potatoes either like a warm salad or place potatoes to the side. Stack kebabs on top and sprinkle with tofu feta, if you like it extra tart jazz it up with a fresh squeezed lemon.
