Summertime Recipe: Souvlaki Paneer Kebabs

Early this year, I participated in a project for the Arthritis Society's living-well program in which a recipe with anti-inflammatory properties will be featured in the coming months. Last month, a summer BBQ veggie side, the Souvlaki Paneer Kebabs, was shared with the arthritis community.


Paneer cheese is a popular dairy product in Indian cuisine. This fresh type of cheese is versatile - it can be eaten as-is or cooked with seasoning. Paneer cheese fits well with a plant-based diet as it is high in protein, and a good source of fat, calcium and vitamin D. While there is some conflicting evidence about the impact of cheese on inflammation, research has shown that small amounts of dairy products are acceptable in an anti-inflammatory diet and may even be helpful. Moderation is key!
