A light and healthy favourite of the SimplyCook team, this dish is perfect for a warm summer's day. The star of this dish is Cyprus' top cheese - halloumi . Made from goat's and sheep's milk, it's excellent for frying or grilling because it won't melt! Our Pistou blend is the perfect partner for halloumi, seasoning it with basil, olive oil, and Italian cheese and the Harissa seasoning drizzled over everything really lifts the flavours with lemon, garlic, paprika, chilli, caraway and coriander. With very simple fresh ingredients to add and delicious blends of pastes in the pots, this iron-rich veggie dish is as easy on the purse strings as it is on the waistband. Swap couscous for the deliciously grainy quinoa to make this a gluten-free dish!

Our 20 minute recipe

  1. Cook the grains

    If making the GF version with quinoa, bring 300ml water to the boil in a lidded pan and add the VEGETABLE STOCK. Add the quinoa, then cover, turn down the heat and simmer for 15 mins until all the stock has been absorbed. 

    Or if you’re doing couscous, pour 200ml boiling water into jug and add the VEGETABLE STOCK. Put the couscous into a large bowl and pour the stock over. Cover with cling film and leave to soak for 5 mins.

  2. Fry the halloumi and courgette 

    Coat the halloumi and courgette in the PISTOU PASTE 

    Heat a griddle/frying pan over high heat. When hot, add a drizzle of oil to it then fry the halloumi and courgette until nicely golden on both sides. Then set them aside and keep warm. 

  3. Prepare the garnishess

    Uncover the couscous and fluff it up with a fork. 

    Toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan for 2 mins, or until golden brown.

    Mix 2 tbsps oil, the juice of one lemon and the HARISSA SEASONING together  for the dressing, then pour it into the couscous/quinoa.

    Add the cherry tomatoes, toasted pine nuts and parsley, (if using) to the couscous and mix well.

  4. Serve! 

    Serve the seasoned grains topped with the grilled halloumi and courgette.

Used an Asda couscous and quinoa salad instead - cooked it for half the time before soaking in the stock and about half the quantity of water, then give it a final heat at the end. Get a piece of foil ready to keep cooked halloumi and courgette warm.

Claire - 1st June 2020

Lovely tasty dish - ensure you have all your prep done before you start to cook and allow plenty of time to cook the courgette / haloumi properly.

Loved it ! Thinly slice the courgette otherwise they’re a bit tough and hard to disguise for kids
