Halloumi salad




3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 small red onion, sliced

1 large roasted pepper from a jar, thickly sliced, or a handful of ready-roasted sliced peppers

200g black, red and pearl Quinola mixed

500ml vegetable stock

small bunch flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

zest and juice 1 lemon

250g pack halloumi cheese, cut into 6 sliced

Mixed salad leaves

Fresh red and orange peppers finely sliced



Boil the Quinola with stock or Boullion for 14 minutes or use a packet of the Express instead for ease.

Cut the halloumi into 6 slices and cook in a preheated frying pan, turning occasional until it turns golden brown on each side.

Slice the roasted pepper along with the onion, fresh peppers and parsley and toss together with the salad leaves.

Sprinkle over the cooked Quinola, then add the cooked halloumi and dress with a drizzle of seasame oil and the zest and juice of 1 lemon.

To make this recipe in half the time, try adding one of Quinola’s Express pack instead of cooking the grains from scratch !
