Mediterranean Mixed Grill Bowls

Mediterranean Mixed Grill

Easter weekend has come way too early this year! If there’s anything that long weekends and holidays like these remind me of, it’s good company and good food. And speaking of good food, I’ve got another recipe in store for you to try this long weekend!

These Mediterranean Mixed Grill Bowls are filled with three different types of meat, some delicious lemon-roasted garlic potatoes and an easy taboule! I love me some variety in my meals, and these bowls are literally the perfect mixture of every one of my favourite kinds of Mediterranean-influenced flavours: there’s a delicious and easy chicken souvlaki, a rosemary-red wine marinated beef and a shawarma-spiced chicken breast all paired with a tasty onion chutney and creamy garlic sauce. Can you get any more yum all in one bowl?

The sauces on the side are what absolutely make these Mediterranean bowls come together for me. As I’m home in Hamilton for the long weekend at my parents’, I’m reminded of one of my favourite restaurants in their end of the city that serve this onion chutney and garlic sauce: a small chain of Mediterranean restaurants called Montfort Grill House.

Their mixed grill bowls are absolutely to die for and include a collection of their best dishes: a tasty beef kofta, their famous Montfort chicken with peppers and pineapple, their chicken shawarma and pork souvlaki served with your choice of two sides including rice, lemon-roasted potatoes, taboule or Greek salad. I’ve tried to replicate a healthier version of this mega-bowl, and I think I did pretty well if I must say so myself!

Long weekends and my favourite restaurants aside, this is truly a bowl full of deliciousness, and can make a fun theme for your next house party. The beef and chicken are easy to leave in the fridge marinating all day, and you can either grill them on skewers, or fry everything up separately in frying pans on the stove. The potatoes are taboule can also be made ahead for easy entertaining and serving. Imagine plating everything separately on your dining room table with some hummus and pita bread for everyone to pick and choose from. You can’t get much easier than that!

Because it’s Easter weekend, I tried to include a recipe that was more on theme, but I couldn’t resist sharing these bowls because they remind me of summer – they’re a taste of the warm weather and of heartwarming family moments that just come together effortlessly. Social gatherings are really what Easter is all about anyway!

    Most of the time when I go to a Greek restaurant my biggest problem is having to choose between all the wonderful dishes.This is the perfect solution! All my favourites in one meal. It looks delish!

    So these look amazing! I definitely want to make them on a weekend night when I’ve got some time! Also, I’m also from Hamilton and have parents that live near a Montforts! I loved to go to that restaurant too when I lived in Hamilton 🙂
