Lovely tasty meal, and so easy. Definitely need to whiz the mixture in a blender first, and I chilled them before cooking. Popped them on my George Foreman grill and took no time at all.

Really really quick and tasty - pop everything in a blender and whiz - shape around skewers and grill. Needs seasoning though, so a healthy sprinkle of salt and pepper really is required in the mix.
