Healthy Skewers

1/2 pumpkin
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 watermelon
150g choice of olives
6 plums
herbs of your choice



Preheat the oven to 200 degrees above and below if you don't have a grill.

Remove the seeds from the pumpkin and cut it into bite-sized pieces.

Place in an ovenproof dish, drizzle with olive oil and bake or grill for 30 minutes.

Cut the watermelon into bite-sized pieces and line them up alternately with an olive on a skewer.

Cut the plums in half and remove the seeds. Alternate with the finished pumpkin pieces on a skewer.

Arrange the skewers on a plate and sprinkle with herbs.



Eating watermelon on hot days is not only refreshing but also good for your health. Because the fruit contains a lot of nutrients. The riper the watermelon, the better. Ripe melons contain a lot of lycopene and vitamin A. Lycopene is an antioxidant that strengthens the heart, bones and immune system. Watermelons also contain vitamin A. It keeps the eyes fit and promotes growth of skin and hair. The high fibre content in the melon improves and regulates digestion and thus helps to counteract constipation. The seeds also supply proteins, vitamin B, magnesium and good fats. The greatest effect should be provided by germinated and peeled cores.



The skewers can be kept in the fridge for the next day. Put the skewer out of the fridge half an hour before eating. A light refreshment for hot days.
