Lemon and Garlic Vegetables with Halloumi Cheese

Lemon and Garlic Vegetables with Halloumi Cheese

The fresh coriander and lemon add a real zing to the vegetables but you might also like to try adding a little heat by chopping up some red chilli (without the seeds) and adding that to the dressing too.

Serves: 4


  • 2 orange peppers
  • 3 small courgettes
  • 1 aubergine
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g halloumi cheese
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • A good pinch paprika
  • Wedges of lemon to serve

For the dressing:

  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 2 tbsp good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • A large handful of fresh coriander
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped


  1. Cut the peppers in half and scoop out the seeds. Slice into big strips.
  2. Trim the aubergine and courgettes and slice into long thin strips.
  3. Put the vegetables into a bowl and drizzle with the oil, toss together.
  4. In another large bowl mix together the dressing ingredients and put to one side.
  5. Heat the grill pan until hot. Add a few of the vegetables and grill until you have golden stripes on both sides. The vegetables should also be slightly soft.
  6. Put into the dressing. Cook the other vegetables and add to the dressing. You may like to keep them warm in a low oven
  7. Mix the flour, paprika and pepper in a small bowl, add the haloumi and mix to coat the cheese. Cook the haloumi in the grill pan until golden.
  8. Spoon the vegetables onto plates and top with the haloumi. Scatter over more freshly chopped coriander and wedges of lemon and serve.
